My Experiences up to Date.

 

It’s been a very long and exhausting semester, I think we can all agree about that. However, this blog has been an interesting experience. I Never thought that I could really manage a blog, but hey, life is filled with surprises! I figured because this was a class project that I would not enjoy it, but boy was I was wrong. Not only have I had a great time managing this blog and learning about WordPress, but I’ve begun to explore the amazing worldly blogs of WordPress. I’m even considering developing another blog, but that’s another story.

I know that this post may be a bit dull, compared to the others, but I just want to talk about some of the experiences I’ve had with this blog and WordPress over the semester.

I really liked how I was able to link this blog up with Twitter and Facebook because I was able to expand my demographics via social media. I try to follow connect with a lot of people over Twitter and Facebook, and the sidebar widget allowed me to connect this blog with my followers.

There really isn’t much about WordPress that I don’t like, however, I wish there were more free layout designs available. That would be my only complain.

One of my favorite benefits of having a WordPress is that you can power a small company or a business. WordPress can allow a company or business connect with its followers at a cheap price. Here’s an article regarding why WordPress is great for small businesses.

Wordpress: So easy a child can operate it.

Not to discredit or make fun of WordPress, but I’ve found out that WordPress is so easy and simple that a child could operate a blog. And that’s not a bad thing, if more sites were as simple to operate like WordPress, We’ed be living in a better world.

 

 

I usually leave you with a motivational quote, and I know this post had nothing to do with working out but I’m still going to leave you with a quote.

 

“Just like in bodybuilding, failure is also a necessary experience for growth in our own lives, for if we’re never test to our limits, how will we know how strong we really are.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger¬†

Best of luck everyone, but for now, farewell.

Keep Calm and Lift Legs.

Don't skip leg day.

Don’t be stuck with “chicken legs.”

 

“I’m actually really tired today. I think I’ll just skip leg day again, for the tenth straight time.” Yeah I get it, working out legs is no fun, but you know what’s even worse? Looking like a chicken in the gym – having a huge upper body, and very small lower body.

I’m sorry to be blunt but there are so many reasons to workout legs.

  • Creates an even balance of bodily functions.
  • Making your body look symmetrical appealing so you don’t look like a fool.
  • Creates stability for the body.
  • Improves your core strength

Increase strength of and mass of your muscles.

 

Before I give you some examples of the exercises you can do around the house, here are some things that Bodybuilding.com suggest you do if you have time to go to the gym. They include exercises that workout

  • Hamstrings
  • Quads
  • Calves

However, if you don’t have the time to go the gym or a more common, but excusable excuse during this time of the year, reason is that you’re either snowed in or the streets have iced over. Don’t kill yourself trying to get to the gym. If the driving conditions or if the weather is unbearable, then don’t risk it, just stay home and do a workout in the comfort of your own home.

Here are just a few exercises that you can do at home, they are, but not limited to:

  • Single leg calf raises.
  • Single leg step-ups.
  • Single leg squats.

Even though the exercises aren’t enough to grow the biggest legs in the world, but they are enough to create a stable core and really give those legs a good burn. We all know that working out legs can be tough, but you have to push threw that mentality. Just know that a few lousy minutes a day working out legs is a lot better than looking like an upside-down triangle.

 

Good luck with this workout. I know it’s getting really cold outside, burr, but I promise these exercises will warm you up!
