Your Body Is A Gift

Image
It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...

But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis. In that moment it didn't take a genius to figure out that my body is really dealing with a lot of inflammation. And that I had been eating more for fun than for healing and nutrition.

It was definitely another nudge for me to really work on focusing to eat with a purpose. Oh, another highly processed cookie, another scoop of ice cream, another handful of marshmallows re…

I'm In Love With The Iron Chest Master


Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. This post contains affiliate links. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience. 

I'm always on the lookout for new exercise equipment. I have found that variety keeps me from getting bored, and different equipment utilizes muscles in different ways. So when I heard about the Iron Chest Master  I was more than willing to give it a try.

I'm only 4'10" and I have a hard time doing the chest fly machine at the gym. No matter what I do to the equipment I can't seem to get the machine set up to fit me. I do use weights to do the chest fly, but I know that I often lose form. Well check this out.



There are several different exercises that you can do with the Iron Chest Master. One is to do a push-up then slide the handles in together. (Notice my form isn't 100% correct. My arms should be straight instead of bent. I had too much resistance). I removed a couple of the bands, and then I was able to get the correct form (with straight arms) .  



You can also do traditional push-ups. 

(Check out my tan lines from working outside when we went to Texas this past week) 

The Iron Chest Master is like doing a bench press, dumbbell press, push-up, cable-crossover, pec deck, and dumbbell fly all in one piece of equipment. 

My initial thoughts? It definitely wasn't easy. But upper body and core are two of my weaker areas. I only did 5 reps of each exercise the first day. The following day I was super sore! In fact, I wasn't able to complete the set the following day and keep form. So I took a rest day. 

I was amazed at how something so simple worked so well. I worked my chest, my arms and my abs. (There is even an ab exercise that you can do. I tend to use every muscle but my abs according to my trainer friend. So I am having to work on targeting my abs instead of using other muscles.) 

My overall opinion of the Iron Chest Master is that I love it. I plan to use it as part of my weekly strength training workout. Another bonus is that it's light and easy to carry where I need it. It's easy to clean, and easy to store. I am well pleased with the Iron Chest Master, and I think you would be too.
