Back to the bands

I’ve been doing sort of an “intuitive” exercise program for the past couple of weeks, where I just do what I feel like doing. Funny thing is, when I give myself permission to skip dread-factor workouts like pushups, I don’t mind doing them as much.

Yesterday I did some band exercises from Sarah Rippel’s MTM program. (She just completed a tri!)  Bands are fantastic for the core.  One of my favorite exercises from MTM is the dowel iso-hold.  Sarah demonstrates at about 1:00 in this video. I held the hold for 90 seconds on each side, and on the second round, my arms were shaking!  Try it, you’ll like it.
