I’m not sure if everyone is a morning person, but I certainly am.
I like to workout while the world slumbers.. and usually, my routine even at 35 weeks pregnant, involves, a 1 hour run, body weight or weights training, finishing off with homemade raw juice of siu pak choy (chinese chard or napa cabbage), carrots, tomatoes, orange juice and cultured milk. This is when I feel my “pipes” and system are truly clean and ready to take on the day!
One of my favourite body weight exercises is called, The Wall Sit, or Roman chair.. and you can try doing this till muscle failure.. errr, don’t drop the juice;)
A wall sit, also known as a Roman Chair, is a major quad burner. This exercise is generally used for building isometric strength and endurance in the quadriceps muscle. It is characterized by the two right angles formed by the body, one at the hips and one at the knees. You place your back against a wall with your feet shoulder width apart and a little ways out from the wall. Then, keeping your back against the wall, you lower their hips until their knees form right angles. This is a very intense work out for the quadriceps muscles.. and now i feel like I’ve earned my juice!
