Ha! We are now, I guess.
I was in a random mood at the gym today and did one of my "stream of consciousness" workouts...you know, doing whatever exercise pops into your head next. I've been in this little in-between workouts period for a couple of weeks, since we've been traveling and a little off our schedule.
So anyway, one of my decided exercises today was push-ups - but instead of doing them on the floor, I put the bar across the bottom bar of the squat rack and gripped it while doing my push-ups.
The action of gripping with your hands while doing the push-up totally engages that little flabby spot under your armpit. No, I'm not kidding and yes, I bet you know the one. The little flabs of skin that fold over the arm hole of your tank top? I hate those.
And that's where I felt the action here.
You could also hold onto a pair of dumbbells or those little push-up things they sell on infomercials (although I never understood why you needed them before!). If you use the bar, just make sure you rest it on the rack so you don't smash your fingers.
Bye-bye fat flabbies!!
In fact, you could do a whole little circuit right there at the squat rack, using just the bar...
10 push-ups holding the bar
8-10 bicep curls
10 bent rows
15 jump lunges
Repeat 3 times.
Then do abs... :) Oww...hurts to laugh!
