As I’ve told you before, Thursday’s might just be the worst day of the week for me.   I think we all have a day that’s harder than others, and for me, that day is Thursday.  In fact, I’ve just spent the last TWO HOURS trying to get our internet connection to work so I could post this.  Bad day.

This week, however, is a little different.  Travis and I are heading down to Atlanta (2hrs away) first thing tomorrow and having a little mini vacation, complete with a couple’s massage on Saturday!!  SO looking forward to that.  (Not so much for the massage, but just to see Travis put in a completely uncomfortable situation.  Yes, I’m the wife who likes to see her honey squirm.  Consider it payback for Sunday night football.)

So since we’re vacationing on the real Friday, I guess today is a fake Friday and NOT a Thursday.   At least that’s how I’m choosing to look at it!

(kinda screwed myself over by having titled this post “Thursday’s Theme”…the Friday joke makes no sense now.   You guys are confused.  You think I hate my husband.  You’re leaving now to go pin something or tweet something or tweet about the last thing you pinned.  Can you pin a website?  If so, pin mine.  When people look at your pins and see Lindsay’s List, they’ll think you’re eclectic…or maybe that you’re charitable towards inept bloggers.)

Gah.  Moving on…

If you’re new to Tuesday Trainer, it’s basically a way for you guys to have a stake in creating an awesome workout. You take the theme and film yourself completing a move that falls within the theme. With the submitted moves, I’ll create a workout. Depending on the number of submitted moves, I may or may not be able to USE every single one in the workout. Don’t worry! I will still feature them at the bottom, with a link to your site. Go here for details on how to upload your video.

The theme for this upcoming week – BACK and BICEPS!!

Yippee!  (really, Lindsay, is there any workout that you’re not excited about?!?)  No.  Not really.  I’m just thankful that God gave me the ability to MOVE and that He continues to bless me with an injury free life!!

You can choose any move that works your back or biceps…or even one move that works both body parts.  The skies the limit!

Here’s my move – 21 Bicep Curl

A few guidelines:

  • Feel free to give tips on proper execution and technique.
  • DON’T include a number of reps or weight. I’ll do that part.
  • If your move isn’t correct, meaning improper form or instruction, I will not be able to feature it. Do your homework and get it right!!
  • On Tuesday, grab the Tuesday Trainer button, to provide your readers with an easy link to the workout! Simply copy the text below and paste it into your HTML code.

**DEADLINE for submitting moves is Monday night, the 3rd, at 8pm EST. Again, go here to learn how to upload your video!***

I’m looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with.  It’s really the highlight of my week!

Off to pack…have a great Frid, er Thursday!

  2. For one of our anniversaries I got my husband (and me) a couple massage! It was so much fun. I actually also got us both a scrub pedi (me with color, him just a foot rub with a scrub) and it was serioulsy amazing. I know that he probably wouldn’t talk about it, but he had a really good time too.

  3. happy fake saturday to you!!!! hahaha :)

    i’ve got to get you a tues trainer video this weekend. except i need to think of a move that doesn’t involve the gym equipment because well i can’t film myself at the gym hahaha. hmmm i’m gonna brainstorm all day today!

  4. I was actually looking forward to this post all day, after your tweet this morning reminded me that today was Thursday. :) I have no idea what move to share yet, but I’m hoping to participate again this week (and send in my video earlier this time!).

    And – YEAH – for Atlanta! You’re coming to my neck of the woods. Let me know if you need any food recommendations while you’re in town.

  5. Are you kidding? I love to see my husband squirm…total payback for all my wasted time in Best Buy. I hate that store!

    Have a wonderful vacation and a fabulous massage!

  6. Can’t wait to see all of the different moves for back and biceps!! This series keeps me excited about exercise :)

    I would definitely say that today isn’t Thursday for you. And since it Thursday for the rest of us, Thursday’s theme makes sense…it’s Thursday and you’re telling us the theme :D

    Enjoy your massage- I just had one yesterday and loved it!

  7. Nah, you don’t hate your husband, you are showing him love! You HAVE to make husbands squirm a little every once in awhile, otherwise they start getting crazy ideas such as thinking they can leave the toilet seat up…haha ;)

    1. welp, clearly i didn’t! i was busy telling you that when i have a friday off, i call the days a hybrid of the real and fake day: mouesday, tuednesday, wedursday and thriday. the end :)

  8. the way I see it, yep, you get a Thursday-Free week :D

    the last time (actually the ONLY time) J and I did couples massage, I kept getting in trouble because I’d lift up my head and talk to him. my therapist would push my head down and shush me. :D now we do separate rooms – much better for all.


  9. Haha, your little side-bar joke made me laugh for a full minute. You made it a happy Thursdsay for me. :-) But, Thursday is my favorite day of the week – so you just put the sprinkles on top.

    I’ll have to get thinking on my move! Maybe I’ll get it in BEFORE Monday this time. ;-)
