So I got some great emails AND pictures this week.
One was from Lisa:
Hey Cori, so fun story…. I won my cornhole championship tonight and everyone was commenting on my biceps as I one-handedly drank the trophy of beer! (The trophy is heavy.) It spurred the thought to push-up drink from the trophy in the middle of the bar… The waitresses hated me…everyone else was amused. Someone asked about the story behind the ruckus… I said ” It’s for Man Bicep, a movement about breaking the taboos about women lifting weights, which I love to do.” Then I said… “Drinking beer is so much better in full decline push up position….just because I can.”. 🙂
Two more great bicep pictures were submitted by Ada and Toni this past week.
Also, a BIG Happy Belated Birthday to Man Biceper Kristen who just recently started lifting weights.
Kristen stated recently, “I have really been enjoying what I’ve been doing thus far and feel great! Tomorrow is my birthday and I feel better than I have in quite a few birthdays!”
Motivated now to workout? Try this workout of the week!!!
That’s right…Man Bicepers even do push ups on mountain tops in snow.
Thank you Judy for these wonderful push up pictures! You and Libby are awesome!
So the day after Thanksgiving, it is always nice to get in a bit of a workout. We took a nice long walk through the neighborhoods near us before heading to the playground to do some push ups and pull ups.
Ryan managed to show me up with 15 straight pull ups while yesterday I could only do 11 (and these are dead hang pull ups with no swing mind you). Drew managed to bust out 2 in the end (yay for rock climbing!).
The Man Bicep Mom was a bit too short to reach the bar…so I picked her up. She was so distracted by the fact that I just picked her up that she laughed instead of doing a pull up.
After the pull ups, we did some fun push ups around the park! Here are some pictures of them!
You won’t ever guess how old Marilyn is…and I’m not telling!
Before we took a picture of her doing a push up, she performed some balancing move that was more impressive than the Crane. She bragged to us that strong men have tried and failed at this move (And trust me we all tried to do it to no avail!).
Thank you Marilyn for the push up picture taken behind our front desk! Soon you will be rocking out a Man Bicep t-shirt!
Vesi you were one of the first Man Bicepers and we will miss you! You must come back and visit often!
Keep lifting and show your girls what being a strong, fit woman really is all about!
Here are our first attempts at The Impossible. Try it!
Thank you Lisa! We expect a new one from the Santa Speedo Run this year!
Thank you also for this picture from after your run! Nice handstand push up!
