Bonus post!  Work is slow right now, so thought I would take time to post my morning workout.  My evening posts can be really long, so I am thinking about splitting them into a morning fitness one and an evening food one.  If I have time.  Might play with that.

New Rules of Lifting for Women Stage 3 B workout:

* Romanian deadlift with row: 1 x 6 at 45#,  1 x 6 at 55#, 1 x 6 at 65 #, 1 x6 at 75 #

*Single leg partial squats 3 x 6
* Widegrip lat pulldown: 1 x 6 at 50#, 2 x 6 at 60 pounds
* Back extension: 1 x 6 at 70, 2 x 6 at 80 pounds
* YTWL: 3   x 6 at 8 pounds
* Stability ball crunch: 3 x 6
* Reverse crunch: 3 x 6
* Lateral flexion: 3 x 6
* Prone cobra: 3 holds x 90 seconds

My new favorite combo exercise is officially the romanian deadlift/barbell row combo.  I have always liked the R deadlift (also called a stiff-legged deadlift) better than a straight dead lift because it works the hamstrings more.  I love the combo of that with the row!  Yay!

I need new gloves.  Here are my poor gloves that I use for lifting and biking:


Stretched out with holes.   Some of the weights and handles have a rough surface, which is eating up my gloves (better than my palms, though!) Gotta love it!

Did 15 minutes on the recumbent bike and then it was time to meet John for breakfast out!  I won’t post the bagel picture, but I will leave you a picture of the nice view of downtown from the coffee shop:


Do you treat yourself midweek?
