Hi ladies!

MrsH - I also really like the "skullcrusher" Laying tri extensions.

I am gearing up for a round of New Rules of Lifting for Women. I've been lifting regularly but need a bit more structure to my routines for now.

Don't forget about good ol' push-ups! Even if you can't do regular push-ups now, a great way to ease into them is to perform them on a slightly vertical surface (like a bench), and as you get stronger move to more and more horizontal surfaces...til your bangin' out those bad boys right on the ground. Yeah, your friends will be impressed Just think of push-ups as "moving planks".

Also, I see women doing push-ups incorrectly a lot. Make sure when you are doing them that your elbows come back at a 45 degree angle, don't let them flare out. It's a bit harder at first, but it puts A LOT less pressure on your shoulders and will make sure you don't hurt yourself in the long run.

Good luck!

That's great! Keep up the good work! Once you get one good push-up, it isn't too long til you get more than one. They build upon each other pretty quickly.

Hi I've been doing the New Rules of Lifting for Women, (NROL4W). I have 2 workouts left in stage 6. Really loving it. I'm going to do the NROL4 abs next.

Hey all I started a weights plan a friend of mine (former bouncer) made me 4 weeks ago. It's full body (18 exercises-3-4 sets of 15 reps per) with cardio bursts and abs 3x a week and then cardio 4x a week.

I haven't stuck to any lifting programs since college (aka before my kids) and I forgot hot much I loved it.

Sheramama -- That's awesome! Glad to hear you're enjoying training again. I gotta say, it makes you feel kinda..hmm...powerful (that's the word I'm looking for!), right?

What kind of exercises are you doing?


Random note:
The human body only moves in six different ways:
Vertical pushing (e.g. military press)
Vertical pulling (e.g. pull-up)
Horizontal pushing (e.g. push-up)
Horizontal pulling (e.g. body row)
Hip dominant (e.g. deadlift)
Knee dominant (e.g. squat)

Strength trainers out there -- are you hitting all six of these planes regularly in your training?
