      It was a busy day, yesterday and got home late so I did 3 x 15 with no weights and jumped into bed...DW hates it when I jump into bed....

        Big grin

         

        I've been trying to post but kept getting error messages.  Nothing yesterday, but will do 60 squats with two 15-lb dumbbells tonight.  (just got home from work)

        Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."


        MM #5615

          4 x 15 Squats--no weights.  I think I'm done with the weights until after the marathon.

              Yesterday, 60 squats with two 15-lb dumbbells

              Today, 60 duck squats (or plié squats) with two 15-lb dumbbells

               

               

              We're getting near the end of the month.  Suggestions for July?

                We're getting near the end of the month.  Suggestions for July?

                I would prefer something that didn't involve the legs...but that's me being selfish.

                  Me too.

                   

                  But today I did this...2x10 sumo squats.

                   

                  Core for July?

                  or upper body?

                   

                  I rather like this upper body 5x5x5 workout. Not too aggressive, but very effective.

                        Nothing yesterday.

                        Today:  60 squats with two 15-lb dumbbells and 60 single-legged-squats-with-toe-touch on each leg.

                         

                        What about a dumbbell 3-some for July?

                         

                        Day 1 - lateral raises

                        Day 2 - dumbbell curls

                        Day 3 - triceps extensions

                          3 x 15--no weights

                            I've been absent from this thread and pretty much from being online much for the past few days. Needless to say, with my relay, squats were not on my list of things to do. lol.

                             

                            Is someone interested in heading up the July Challenge??

                              Boy...finding someone to head up these challenges is a real challenge....

                                3 x 12 squats with weights.
