Sorry, but I’m not sorry – I needed that laugh!

If I tricked you last week with “Rest”, I’m being completely transparent this week.  Between nightly Oz rehearsals (7pm – 9:30pm), a full fitness class schedule and a revealing my deepest secrets, I just don’t have the energy to come up with anything other than the obvious.

In fact, to prove just how shot my mind really is, I went and misspelled Kristin’s name yesterday!!  Gah!  I REALLY DON’T LIKE it when people misspell my name, so I feel like such a hypocrite.  Sorry, Kristin – please forgive me!
The theme for this week’s Tuesday Trainer is Chest, Shoulders and Triceps!!  Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

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.

Last week, we RESTED!  We got to know more about each other.  And it was glorious!  My body is rested and mind is clear.  Now, I’m ready to sweat!

But doesn’t that always happen when we rest – we remember (and sometimes long for) the movement that our bodies were made for.  I try to rest AT LEAST one day a week and it’s usually two.  After a rest day, I’m able to go faster, longer, harder and really put my all into my workouts!  Rest days are CRUCIAL for repair, for growing, for restoring!

But rest week is long gone.  We’re moving again.  I’ve got my whistle out and I’m about to get all Jillian Michaels up in here.  Or something like that.  (I don’t actually own a whistle…if I want to make you do something for me, I’ll just nag you to death OR make you feel guilty by bringing up past mistakes – one of those – #channelingmymother).

Here’s my Chest move – The “Paper Plate Pushup Fly Thingy-ma-jig”

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 in my side bar and paste it into your HTML code.
**DEADLINE for submitting moves is Monday night, the 17th, at 8pm EST. Again, go here to learn how to upload your video!***

I’m off to teach an Aqua Power class and probably mispronounce some older ladies name.  It’s ok though – they’ll either be too old to hear me or too polite to correct me.  Kristin – you are too polite.  Winking smile

Happy Thursday!!

  1. OMG that cartoon made me laugh out loud! Awesome! Thanks for entering the She Rocks Fitness giveaway and I look forward to following you. Love your blog and hope you are enjoying your “girls” weekend. :)

  2. Love your move (and the coolio name). :) I might need to include my boys in the video. Hope that’s okay. Shoot I may need a reminder too. I forget everything. Monday deadline……
    Happy Friday! Have you ever used Gliding Discs before?

  3. Haha! Thanks for realizing it! I was being too polite :) I actually can’t stand it when people misspell my name (I always say I’m KrisTIN, not Kris10), and I thought about e-mailing you, but didn’t want to sound petty, bitchy, naggy or anything else like that :)

    Can’t wait to bust out an awesome new move this week! I’ll actually be submitting it early this week (GASP!!) because I’m taking tomorrow off of work :)

  4. Phew, that looks tough! With all my running, I have really been neglecting my upper body. I’m so going to try these at the gym tonight…even if I am a little scared :-)

  5. Dang girl. That looks like a tough one…I suck at push ups. Actually, I’m okay at them, I just hate them. I’ll do something that isn’t push-up like. :-)

  6. Hey Lindsay! Love the post and the upcoming moves! Look forward to doing a hotel workout move for one of those muscle groups…got my thinking cap on (and will try not to do a push up – I’m sure there will many of those entries! or at least make it a different one). Great video!
