Big mistake. I swear. I will be using movers next time. It was exhausting, frustrating and just over all a pain in the a!$. But, of course I did not waste my moving experience! No! I used it as an opportunity to get a full body workout so that I could enjoy that all important pizza break when you are done moving! I also came up with a workout to prepare for my move and thought I would share with those of you who are moving soon or are just looking for ways to do some quad, hamstring and lower and upper back strengthening.
20 Jumping Jacks
15 (each side) Dirty Dogs (on all fours, lift leg to the side like a dog doing a #1)
15 Wall Slides (Back on the wall, slide arms up and down)
15 (each side) Lunge and Twists
15-20 Deadlifts (with or without weight)
15-20 Push Ups
15-20 Scorpions (All Fours, lift leg in the back, squeeze glutes)
15-20 (each side) Russian Twists (Seated, with out without medicine ball or weight, cross ankles, lift legs and rotate core from side to side)
15-20 (each side) Opposite Arm/Leg Supermans- (Lying on stomach, arms and legs straight, lift one arm and opposite leg off the floor, repeat)
Cooldown with a few stretches and try to fit in some meditation time. Trust me it will help get your mind right for horror that is moving on your own. Don’t get me wrong, I love my new place. But, next time, I getting movers.
