Ruth C @zoobenny

I love my military fitness sessions 3 times a week and supplement this with TS challenges. I crave variety which is probably why I don't get on well with the repetition of running!

OCT 2013 - PRIORITIES
1) Train to do first chin-up/pull-up
2) Increase core work and hopefully end up with visible abs, but I want the 6 pack to be a bi-product of core work/Pilates and fat burning and not a trillion ab exercises.
3) With the aid of a newly purchases pedometer (good quality not cheapo), increase my activity level and daily steps to the recommended 10,000, and hopefully burn some fat in the process!
4) Work on stretching on a regular basis to be able to touch toes straight legged.

Ruth C Pilates - one class a week for 8 weeks Challenge
7/8 - Had the resistance bands out the first time this term. I'm not a great lover of the bands, but some exercises are good. Contemplating whether to take my band I don't normally use on holiday.

I think this is the first team running challenge I've done as I don't normally run, but glad to contribute a few runs and some walking.

Ruth C Pilates - one class a week for 8 weeks Challenge
6/8 - Seen an improvement in flexibility in my shoulders since the course started, but they're still ever so crunchy!!
20131111144432-sentient0ne

Crunchy doesn't seem like a good thing. But I know what you mean. I have joints that "talk" to me all the time.

Matteo R encouraged this.

I never have any problem with my joints touch wood, but I notice my shoulders are a bit noisy in pilates especially for movements like arm rotations. Something clicked in the class one day loud enough for everyone to hear, and I'm probably the youngest in the class by about 20 years!!

Terry G and Matteo R encouraged this.

Ruth C Steph G

Contributorgold Ruth C Steph I have only just found out and ever so shocked. I remembered something I read last week which I thought was appropriate and I thought you'd appreciate.
"I asked God for strength, and God gave me difficulties to make me strong". God bless Steph, be strong :o)

Ruth C Tribesport Mentors Tribe

Sometimes I notice a new person has encouraged something I've done and on investigation are very found to be very new to TS, maybe only joined that day. It would be nice to drop a line of welcome and encouragement to these people, but I don't want...

Ruth C Do your first CHIN-UP Challenge
Chin-up/Pull-up/Chin-up/Pull-up grip. First two this morning and second two this evening. Finally got over a minute for the pull-up grip. I tend to do these close together, but I think I should do the pull-up at a different time to try and hang longer.
  • 1:10 of Dead Hang From Bar
  • 0:40 of Dead Hang From Bar
  • 1:25 of Dead Hang From Bar
  • 1:05 of Dead Hang From Bar
