WORD & WEIGHT
I Corinthians 9:24-27
Alright, a NEW feature on Fit this, Girl! Word & Weight! A highlight of the word of God and a weight lifting info that is on my love list!
Word: Aim for that target!
I love I Corinthians 9:24-27. There are SO many verses in the bible about running and our race in front of us, but this one the past week has been popping up for me!
The idea of running, not aimlessly is very poignant right now. We must have a destination, we must have a finish line in front of us! As a follower of Christ, I know the finish line that is ahead of me- eternity with him! I know that an eternal finish line will bring my my best and most glorious finish and that my COACH, my trainer, my savior will get the credit!
BUT while we are here, running on earth, seeking our path, seeking God in all things, we are not to be aimless either. We pick a goal, go after it with drive, discipline and knowing that we run with PURPOSE. We serve as an example to others for persevering, for being disciplined! Joyce Meyer says that Discipline is planning her pain and planning her pleasure. When we do one, we automatically do the other.
We plan that race, we train and in the end we rejoice at our finish! We plan the workout, we hit it hard, and we find pleasure in the reward, we feel good, we kept our word, gave our all. We aim, high and we trust that with our faith to carry us, we will finish just exactly where we are supposed to, right on target!
I LOVE working the triceps!! A few of my favorite moves are the triceps dip, which has MANY variations off of a bench:
Keep your elbows close to your body
Elbows come straight back, don't let them flair!
BEND at your elbows to lower your body, don't just drop the hips
Tighten your core, abdominals ON!
Keep your feet up on a bench as shown in the picture OR place them on the floor in front
Place your feet on a stability ball out in front of you to force your stabilizing muscles to engage more!
With your feet on the floor, hold a lightly weighted medicine ball between your knees as you dip!
HAVE FUN and love your triceps today!! What is your favorite triceps move?
