Learning to walk & chew gum

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:22 am by loretta

My biggest difficulty with the class last night was all of the coordination. So, Brian decided he would help me learn to “walk and chew gum.” I needed to concentrate on contracting several different groups of muscles at once. While moving. He did keep the exercises on the simple side of complex. Though he did have to remind me several times to contract everything correctly. We did portions of rowing while lunging, and portions of lunging while rowing.

Transverse work

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:15 am by loretta

Apparently, I’ve been using the wrong muscles for core stabilization. It’s not supposed to be the same ones that I use for breathing. So today we worked on focusing on the transverse muscles, so that I can breathe and do ab work. So it requires more focus on my various muscles than I’m used to. Held bridge, slight leg lifts, and planks before heading upright for taut kettle bell swings and taut squats.

Rethinking laterally

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:11 am by loretta

Yep, laterally, not literally. New exercises for rotator cuffs and lats to take advantage of a wider dimension of movement.
