The Crow's Gym Thoughts: Vol. 141

Crow's #Gym Vol. 141
I make no secret that I prefer to get up in the morning and drive to the gym and workout there. I know some people that get a good workout at home, but I know a lot more that fail when they don't have the drive to go get that workout. There is more commitment to getting up and going to the gym while at the same time less commitment because there is a much wider variety in what you can do. In any regard, you need to work out, for the sake of your health. Knowing that I will be getting out of the house and going somewhere other than work for a couple of hours each day, is my sake of sanity too.

Gym Term of the Day from The Health Whacko Gym Term Dictionary ..
Cheating
A method of pushing a muscle to keep it working far past the point of temporary muscular failure. In cheating, you will use a self - administered body swing, jerk, or otherwise poor form once you have reached temporary muscular failure to take some pressure off the muscles being used primarily in the movement and allow them to continue for a few more reps. Word of advice
Save cheating for the last set of an exercise.

Starting Position:
1. Stand between two evenly placed cable towers,.
2. Place your feet and knees together, grab the opposite cables in each hand holding the snap back balls.
The Movement:
1. Draw the cables outward so that they are parallel to the floor and straight out from the shoulders.
2. Slowly return to the starting position, resisting the weight on the way back inward.
Tips:
• Your little finger should be higher than your thumb at the top of the movement, as if you are pouring water from a jug.
• Keep your torso still. Do not bend forward or arch back.
• Lead with your elbows rather than your hands.
• Keep your elbows bent at about 10° throughout to avoid straining them.
