Thanks Maya, I've put it on my favorites list so I can work on it. I am beat already today and still have 50 min. step aerobics to do! Today was push-ups, sit-ups, a few other strength (so I meet the goal for alteast 2 different exercises for each area) 10 minutes of hooping, 55 minutes of trying to Zumba.

Well, Varee, I've been stalking you. So obviously, I know *everything*.

Nah.

You just lucked out. I've got a whole playlist of this lady's Zumba classes - want it?

Okay, here it is, even before you asked: www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=9E3

Sometimes, we focus so much on crunches that we forget there are other, excellent exercises for our core.

So today, let's do the pendulum!

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis
es
.asp?exercise=144


Or, slightly easier, the modified pendulum, with or without a ball:

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis
es
.asp?exercise=5


2 sets. 10 reps each. Or 12-15 reps if you want to track it in your fitness tracker for the day!

Heh. It's almost become weekly mini-challenges! I promise to try to be better - but I'm moving at the end of the week ... :)

For today, let's stick with dancing.

Sorry Maya, I sort of had a bit of an advantage.. As a child I had those tight curls like you see on the girls that do this dance, and since I'm part Irish people thought it was "cute" to teach me some of the Irish dances.

Unfortunately I've forgotten most of them, but still love to try.

Haha. Thanks, Varee. No, I couldn't eve keep up with the chimps! :)

emoticon ... I did my own steps, though, at my own pace. :)

Those girls were GOOD! I watched the St. Patrick's Day Parade here in Toronto yesterday, and one of the floats had some teenage girls doing a simpler version of this - it still looked awfully complicated - good for them, willing to get up and do it on a float moving past thousands of people!

Folks, please throw out your OWN GOYBs on days when you don't see a new challenge in here. Get wild and crazy with it - make us do a tough little exercise, or even just scroll down and repost one of the GOYBs that were previously posted! :) Wouldn't want you to shirk just because I didn't come by and POKE ya!

Here's a tougher GOYB for today - it's a multi-functional exercise, one of my favourites because it hits so many body parts at once - Dumbell squats with calf raise and overhead press: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis
es
.asp?exercise=35


GOYB: 2 sets, 10 reps each.

Use lighter weights than usual ... these compound exercises really work your body!

I'm off to do them at the gym (no weights at home!) ... will be back to report. :)

Cheers,
Maya

Maya, I did the Move It Move It!! However it wasn't at a good pace. I just can't get the energy to do anything that I want to do!!

I am going to stop all exercise until I hear from my doctor!! I'm only wearing myself out trying to do things. I get even more tired after I do ANYTHING. It doesn't matter what it is! Even the simplest of things!!

However, I will be back to do your GOYB on a daily basis and as soon as I read it, as soon as I can get things straightened out. Please be patient!!

Umm, yeah, sure. "TOMORROW?" What's THAT all about? You're supposed to do it when you see it. Even if that's late at night or you're tired, or whatever. :)

Since I'm working on *my* upper body today, I'm gonna make you gals do that, too! :)

GOYB: Give me 2 sets of 15 triceps dips. Body weight is plenty. You can do straight-leg triceps dips or bent-knee ones.

Okay, I'll go easy on y'all today.

Let's just dance.

GOYBAD: Mambo Italiano. Be sure to do the very cool arm thing! And the sassy smile won't hurt, either! :) www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGnh0q4RuQ8

Haha! Sheri, most of the women I know avoid the upper body workouts, which is why I threw that one out. Keep working at those ... they're GREAT for you!

Today, we're continuing with the upper body: biceps curls today.

GOYB: 2 sets, 10 reps each arm Biceps curls

Either concentration curls www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis
es
.asp?exercise=156


Or Alternating Biceps Curls: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis
es
.asp?exercise=69


Or Biceps Curls with Resistance Band: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis
es
.asp?exercise=171


If you don't have dumbells or a resistance band, you can do these curls with a couple of books, or cans, or even just your own body weight. Really tense up those biceps and work SLOOOOOOWLY for maximum burn.

If you're doing the alternating curls or the curls with the band, make sure you hold your elbow steady by your side - it totally wastes the effect of the exercise if your arm moves around as you curl up!

emoticon 2 x 20 Seated Concentration Curls.

Cheers,
Maya

Since my batwings looked awfully awful in that dress (Rita, for me, the batwings are the loose flab covering my triceps, not on the back!), we're gonna target those today.

GOYB: 2 sets of 20 triceps dips (straight-leg or bent-knee)

emoticon Triceps dips done.

Cheers,
