    Goalposters Exercise Check-In 1/21/21

    Hey everyone

    Did you do some physical activities last week? Exercises?

    Let us know how you did.

    And let's hope that Mamabug is healing and feeling better.

    My exercises went very well, and I accomplished my goals.

    I had a good week overall, with a few extra challenges sneaking in a bit, here and there.

    Got through and past them, thankfully.

    My sister brought some great meals, which included liver and salmon. Delicious! May she be blessed!

    I will continue on with the same exercise goals.

    Daily: Up on feet and light activity (walk/stand) 6X a day @ 30 min each + Stretches throughout the day + Breathing exercises

    4X Per Week: In-chair ab crunches (20 each time) + Arm, Leg, Core, and Back Exercises

    Good energy, good health, and peace of mind to all.

      Thanks for starting this while Mamabug is not well and glad you made your goals again!

      I made my goal as well. I did another outdoor non-stop walk with trekking poles and made it to 510 steps, an increase from the week before.
      Babysat once and did some much needed housecleaning, concentrating in somewhat-deep cleaning kitchen and bathrooms.

      Hope to increase steps for next week!
      Keep positive y'all

        Hi KoKo!

        Thanks for initiating the thread and my best to Mamabug too! My week was good also and goals were accomplished.

        Starting with and standing out; cardio work. Maybe 3 days @ 25 minutes each on mixed equipment... with slightly improved times & endurance. Unexplainable.

        Corework did not suffer while decline bench was being reupholstered!

        Arm and leg mix throughout the usual 3 days at gym, 75 minutes plus each day. Not as much accomplished without trainer sadly. I execute properly and with fair or good results, but the set-up takes time and I'm limited with one working hand to move plates or lock equipment. Therefore less gets worked on. Need to get creative and establish new approaches to work these muscle groups.

        6 days stretching at 25 minutes each, some days better than others... also unexplainable. In general this area has been poor lately.

        Things going on: Received some new info for my CCRC thread, will post FWIW. Also getting downed trees removed by a fellow who sells firewood. A lot of work. A polar vortex this coming week... yikes.

          Glad to hear it Seasha!

          I should get the poles out. I need to establish and maintain proper pole position on my bad right side... currently after a few hundred steps the pole is in no position to support a foot drop stumble on that side. Arm contraction is pulling wrist face upward... pole winds up hindering rather than helping...

            Hope you're feeling better soon @Mamabug

            Thanks for starting the thread @Koko .. mmmm....liver! Vongrats on the goals and overcoming those challenges.

            Nice job Seasha meeting your goals and with an increase in steps....awesome

            Another solid week @502E79....I wouldn't look for explanations, especially on gains.

            I had a good week

            2 nights of jiu jitsu....done
            2 runs at 3 miles each .....done
            Multiple stretch sessions throughout the week.

            ​​​​​​​Still haven't started the 5 x 50 yet...not sure what I am waiting on...keep it going.

              Looks like a splendid exercise week, Jer!
