Hi everyone!

I hope you are having a great Friday. As I said yesterday, I am in Illinois for my grandpa’s funeral. Again, I apologize for not being able to really comment and read all of your blogs. I’ll be back at it again when I get home.

One of the best ways for me to relieve stress or, as was the case this week, try to boost my mood is to exercise. Wednesday morning I needed a good workout to help make me feel better. My weight-lifting workout helped do just that. Here it is:

Pin It

  Here are descriptions to some of the exercises:

Step-ups to reverse lunge


Cable face pulls

Cable squat to row

Up/down planks

Plank knee tucks



Want to participate?

“Fitness Loves of the Week” (FLOW) is a link-up party similar to What I Ate Wednesday except it’s all about fitness! On Fridays I will post either a routine that I have created that week, a picture or video of a move that I have done, or even a post about a workout. You guys simply do something similar!

If you’ve had a great workout/fitness post earlier in the week and you don’t want to make up a new one, you don’t have to! Simply grab the button from my site, paste it in your Friday post, then when you link up you can use the link from whatever post of yours you want!

  6. Killer looking workout! And HOW did I forget about the step up reverse lunge combo? That used to be a favorite but I haven’t done it in forever! Thanks for the reminder.

    And still thinking about you. Hugs!

  7. Working out always makes me feel better. I am sorry to hear about your grandpa. Thinking of you and your family. xo

  8. Aw so sorry to hear about your loss! It is good that you can find a little comfort in working out! I am impressed you are able to post at all! I feel it is your selflessness (that is a word) that is enabling you to still provide us all with a good work-out and link-up.

    Thanks for the post and you will be in my prayers!

  9. Booo I tried to link up my post, but it says linking is closed! 😦 Here’s my workouts from this week! http://lifeafterswimming.wordpress.com/2012/02/17/fitness-friday/

  12. I’ve been needing a great “everything” workout – this looks awesome! It is starting to become tradition for me to do one of your workouts every Sunday morning. They are always so great! Thanks for being my sort-of-trainer, Lindsay 🙂

  13. Love this workout Lindsay as usual! I don’t have a workout for today, sorry love 😦 but i shall next week!

    I hope things are okay for you right now, stay strong you amazing lady

  14. I’m sorry to hear about the passing of your grandfather. I’m praying for you & your family.

    I’ve never tried a step-up to a reverse lunge! I’m intrigued by the workout so I’m going to give a try!! 🙂
