Here’s an easy way to help us win the TRX Get With The Movement Contest

Thanks to the help of my readers, Facebook friends, family, non-Facebook friends, and more, my daughters and I are really in the running for the top prize in the TRX Get With The Movement sponsorship contest.  Thank you!

My friend Ken Hansen (he’s a great handyman.  If you’ve got a to do list, he’ll make it his get it done list) gave me an idea.  He said that he’s set his home page as our video so each time he opens a web browser the video gets another view.  Great idea!

Here are the simple steps to changing your home page:

1. Click the following link to visit our TRX Get With The Movement video on You Tube:

 2. If you’re using Internet Explorer, click the toolbar picture of the house at the top right of your screen (see below).

 3. Choose Add or Change Home Page

 4. From the Add or Change Home Page dialog box, choose “Use this webpage as your only home page.

 After we win the TRX Get With The Movement contest (don’t worry, I’ll announce it on this blog), you’re welcome to leave our video as your home page so you can see us every day.  But, if you’d like to change it back to your original home page we’ll understand.  Just follow the same steps above but be sure to change the link in step 1 to your preferred home page.

TRX 40/40 Atomic Pushup/Low Row Challenge

TRX 40/40 Challenge
TRX 40/40 Challenge
The folks at Fitness Anywhere, makers of the TRX Suspension Trainer, put out a challenge a few months ago. I took up the challenge and made it. Watch the video below!

The TRX 40/40 challenge involves doing 40 Atomic Push Ups, followed by a 1 minute rest period, and then doing 40 Low Rows. It’s a great test of upper body strength and stability. The Atomic push ups were tough, but I really had my hands full with the Low Rows. I had to rest a few times on the rows, but I never compromised my form and never touched the ground.

I’ve written about the TRX before and this won’t be the last time. It’s a phenomenla functional training tool and one that you can take anywhere. If you’d like to get your own TRX, check it out right here!

While you’re doing that, I’ll be recovering.
