Remember when I talked about my inner lazy girl ? Oh yeah, she came out to play (or not play) this week.
By that, I mean that this week consisted of mostly rest days with a few random work outs thrown in. I fully intend to count cleaning and organizing as workouts – you know, just so that sweat it out Saturday isn’t a complete bust.
Last Sunday, I did my first link party . I guess that Tiff and I were the only ones getting our sweat on over the weekend, huh? Oh, what’s that you say? Reverse psychology doesn’t work on adults? Try telling that to my family.
In my opinion, it was still a fun two-person party!
Ready for the lazy girl’s version of sweating it out? Here we go!
As always, the only rule is that everything has to make you lazy sweat, motivate you to be lazy sweat, or accompany you in your laziness sweatiness.
These little chunks of energy have proven to be a great pre-workout snack!
Sweaty Move of the Week [dips you can do anywhere]
And I really do mean anywhere.
You could always go the traditional route and use a dip machine or a dip station. However, since I have neither of those, I go the non-traditional route. Luckily for me (and maybe you?), nontraditional isn’t synonymous with ineffective.
I’m going to show you 3 variation of dips, which increase in difficulty.
All you need is yourself and a stable chair/ledge/bench to do these moves!
Variation 1 – easy (well not easy, but easiest)
For variation 1, keep you feet flat on the floor with your knees bent at a 90 degree angle. Place your hands on your equipment of choice and lower yourself until your arms are bent at a 90 degree angle. Push yourself back up, and repeat.
Variation 2 – medium
For variation 2, you’ll use a similar method to variation 1. Only this time, your legs will be extended in front of you with your heels on the ground. This is essentially adding more weight [less assistance] during the dip.
Variation 3 – hard
For this variation, you’ll need a chair or a stability ball. Put your heels on the chair/ball in front of you and perform the dip as described above.
Challenge! If you really want to challenge yourself, you could do a leg lift with the triceps dip.
Choose your difficulty (or do all three) and complete 2-3 sets of 10-15 exercises. Couple these dips with cardio, pushups, and other body weight exercises to get your sweat on!

You can write up a post specifically for Sweat it Out Saturday or you can link up with a post from the past week.
The goal here is to create a compilation of motivational posts!
The party doesn’t end until Sunday evening – so link up anytime! :)
