    sitting too long? Rocketeer exercise

    When you have been sewing for a long time. it is good to stand and stretch and maybe even do some exercises and re-hydrate. I thought I'd offer a weightlifthing pic, I ( gasp) sold one this weekend.

    But sadly, not to me! I'm currently in love with this model after I got my sweet 301 back in November.

    Great picture though!

    Dang... I only have One 301A. So do I have to buy another one in order to follow your Exercise Program??
    Would using two 401A's work as well? I would have to take them out of the cabinets..

    My DH is all into serious bodybuilding and he did 250lbs four times without a spotter the other week. I couldn't watch, because if something had happened, there would be no way I could have helped him!

    But... Don't take that as a challenge!! I would hate for you to hurt yourself! DH has been training for about six months now.

    I have a pair of 301s, but I'll stick to my 2# weights. Good job, Leon.

    Great! Thanks for reminding me I need to go to the gym today. And I just got a quilt sandwich ready to quilt. And it's raining and nasty outside. Spring is gone from Missouri.
