And this is what’s up, yo.
Just to be clear: I have no gym membership, nor do I belong to a health club of any kind. I own no fitness equipment whatsoever, not even hand weights. The progress you see here is a result of cleaning up my eating habits, doing body weight exercises, and lifting things I have around the house. While I watch TV (and believe me, I watch a metric fuckton of TV), I lift wine bottles, water bottles, liquid detergent bottles, furniture, duffel bags full of rocks, neighbourhood children… you name it. If it has a handle or if I can figure out how to hold onto it, I lift it. And lift. And lift. When I get tired, I lift more. About half of my lifting is for upper body; I also do lower-body exercises like squats while holding up one end of the sofa. You can get really creative with furniture. I bench press my bed every morning. As soon as I get out of bed, I’m under it.
Fitblr community, you are my inspiration and my strength. Thank you for being on my dash every day.
