Monday Night’s Yoga (5/24/10)
The work-out: Yoga for Strength #1. This one is hard! My thighs started burning during the warrior series, but I like how this class spends so much time in warrior poses—serious leg strengtheners! Often I find that when I am guided through yoga by someone else’s cues, the warrior poses are not as long as I’d like. But this class pushes my warrior limits.
My legs are a bit sore from yesterday’s run. Also of fitness interest: when I was laying on the floor reading last night, I decided to do a bunch of close-arm (triceps) push-ups, and I’m feeling the effects tonight. Whew! These “tricep” push-ups are great, and I like how they are used in many of the yoga classes from yogadownload.com. I don’t work my triceps very often, so it’s nice to discover a neglected body part and feel it working hard.
