Embracing The Changes In Life

Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

How do I feel about it? I feel liberated. I feel like stepping outside of the model of runner to something bigger. Because I've said it before, and I will say it again, I am more than just a runner.
As I grow older with my family, I realize that life is constantly changing. I am constantly changing. And learning to embrace the change definitely makes for an easier transition. For probably the first time in my life, I am

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.
