Are you looking for an exercise buddy?

Tuesday, June 16, 2020

Do you have a dog? Then look no further!

I'm not talking about walking them. Down here on the Gulf coast it's getting a bit warm for anything besides a walk to the mailbox or putting the trash can to the curb.

I don't know about your fur baby, but mine is always begging for attention. So it's either a game of fetch or tug o' war. These are great for incorporating in your daily exercise routine! And you both get the benefit!

I do bicep and hammer curls, triceps curls, overhand and underhand ball or toy toss with her. And she LOVES it! I used to have a dog that would sit on my chest when I working out on my bench. My DH called it resistance!

If you have a cat, I guess you could do lifts with her/him. I just hope they trust you enough to do it! I'd hate it if they scratched you!

Well, my baby's begging for a game. I gotta run! Oh, and that's also a fun game you can have with them!

    Nothing like a fur baby to motivate you to move a bit more!

    Izzy won't play fetch (Cat) BUT!! She's a GREAT Yoga workout partner!! As I go from move to move, so does Izzy!! I get to laughing so hard!!

    I did a 15 min ST about an hour ago (or so) with my GGS. He's not quite 3, and is TALL for his age, he comes up to my hips!! He weighs 35 lbs (His Momma grew up fast too, but is only 5'6") I LOVE Tossing this kid about and he laughs and laughs and laughs!! He's a GREAT Weight for me!! LOL I love it. I also wore him out so he's now sleeping. GOOO GREAT GRANDMA!!

    My old dog won't play with me. However the pup I got just over a year ago loves tug of war - a great workout for the arms! He also loves to chase a ball but hasn't quite got the idea if he drops it, I will throw it more often.
    I just wanted to say, thanks for the reminder of how much they can help get me moving. emoticon emoticon
