A propos nothing in particular (except that reasonably intensive training is always de rigueur this time of year – gotta look good in those new shorts, don’t we): I just got this fabulous book, Women’s Strength Training Anatomy, which describes in almost overwhelming detail the way our bodies work and how we can best improve them. Yes, this means more sweating and groaning. But somehow static forward lunges feel better when you can visualize exactly how your gluteus maximus (that’s the one you’re sitting on) is improving. At any rate, that’s what I’ll be telling myself.
Whatever helps, right?by
