A Red Pine Mountain LogoHello everyone.  Thanks for visiting my blog today.  I have a challenge for you and if you choose to continue reading, I'm going to make you work.  Has your waist line expanded over the winter?  Mine did.  But now with summer around the corner and short sleeves, shorts and bathing suits soon to make an appearance, it's time to do something about those winter bulges.  Never fear.  We have time.  Let's get started with our workout.

Always make sure you warm up and the best way to do that is stretching.  Now, reach for the sky!  Do you feel the stretch?  That's good.  You're doing a great job.  Now hold it just a second longer.  Feel the burn.

You're doing great.  We're on our way.  Now let's try some leg lifts.  Bored with ordinary leg lifts?  Then try them on a balance beam for an added challenge.  Good job!

Let's add in some resistance work and really isolate those muscles.  Grab your rope everyone and STRETCH.  Really elongate that neck.  Beautiful!

Wow, Nebraska Dave, you and Mountain Man could be twins separated at birth. He says exactly the same thing you do about bodies needing to be worked hard during the day and all day long, like you, he's beating himself up doing heavy physical labor until he collapses in pain at night to get up and repeat the process. I so admire men like you and MM who are always hard at work. Me, well, I prefer working out with horses or running from amorous tom turkeys to keep me in shape. No matter, all that is important is we are living life with gusto at our ripe old age and we are still actively engaged in physical labor. Use it or lose it is so true. Thanks so much for visiting!
