This week I'm excited to continue my streak of combining exercise concepts that we've already discussed. This week, we're combining deadlifts and rows. This is one of my absolute favorite exercises - I love how it works your whole body while making you feel like a ballerina as you focus on your leg extension and balance. I can't recommend it enough!
(Also, please disregard the torture-chamber looking pilates machine next to me. Photogenic space was limited!)
Pause with arms extended to the floor, leg extended to the back of the room, and body and leg parallel to the floor. Pull your elbows up to the ceiling while maintaining your position parallel to the floor. Try to pull your elbows up past your body. Drop your arms back down as you begin to drop your foot.End in the same position you started in. Repeat on one side for one minute then switch to the other side.
This week is turning into a pretty good week for me - I'm getting back into the workout groove, I won a cool handheld receiver in Jacey's giveaway today, and my sister comes to visit on Friday! I hope your week is going well!
