The Crow's Gym Thoughts: Vol. 217

Crow's #Gym Vol. 217
Having trouble with that sweet tooth? Believe it or not there are plenty of ways to satisfy a sweet tooth and not destroy your eating habits. Of course like anyone else the first thing I will tell you is to go for the fruit. Fruit with a lot of water is better than fruit with little water. Think of it this way, but a grape and a raisin have about the same calories, but what do you think gets you to feeling full faster? Watermelon is another great way to get some sweet with little guilt, but you can also go after the sweetened rice cakes too. The fact of the matter is if you have "healthy sweets" available then the need for the quick and easy ones in the grocery checkout line subsides a lot easier.

Starting Position:
1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.
2. Grab a pair of handles attached to a single cable around chest to face level.
The Movement:
1. Pull the handles directly toward your face and out until the back of your wrists are beside your face.
2. Hold for a count of two; then slowly bring the cables back to the starting position.
Tips:
• Make sure you do not sway backwards as you pull the cable.
• At the top of the movement your elbows should be level with, or slightly higher than, your hands.
Variations:
Wide grip: Using a shoulder width grip, places more emphasis on the deltoids and less on the trapezius.
