It’s Friday! I’m sharing some weekend (or unproductive Friday afternoon at the office anyway) reading about women’s fitness. These are links I’ve seen tweeted on @StrongBride or have read on my favorite blogs. I hope you enjoy the links and your weekend!
How to Track Progress - @SteveKamb at NerdFitness offers a very thorough approach to tracking your progress. He offers tips on how to track food intake, workouts, and weight loss (by ditching the scale!) Remember the fitness mantra: what gets measured gets improved!
It Might not be your Back - A great reminder that low back pain isn’t always what it seems. I had low back pain from age 16 until I started lifting about 10 years later. Weak glutes are common for almost everyone with a desk job and learning how to strengthen and activate them can relieve lots of back pain. The exercises described in this video are extremely beneficial.
