When Not to Rock the Baby

I felt rather saucy yesterday and decided to do the total body circuit on Jackie Warner's Personal Training DVD.

My abs + hamstrings + quads + gluteus maximus, minimus, medius = sore. Unimaginable soreness with every little move.

Oh my God. Yoga was not very restorative. Warrior Two? Rocking the baby? Bending? Climbing stairs? Kneeling? Sitting? Standing? Ill-advised.

I'm not a fan of hot summer baths during stormy weather but it is definitely Epsom Salt time...


  1. Warrior II kills me after hard leg work days.

    Epson salts ROCK.

    I realy need me some hip opener, too.

    Wanted to thank you for turning me onto the Mockingjay books. I really liked The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo series. Funny--I wouldn't't gave connected the two, but I can see the similarities now.

  2. Laura,

    I need to remember to do yoga outside of the classroom. It's like I forget what resources I have available to me...

    Glad that you like Collins' books. I read a few pages of The Girl...then got distracted by a nonfiction book but I'm definitely looking forward to reading it.

  3. Before I started taking classes, I never realized how much yoga could burn. I'm not just talking about the heat that your body generates, but sometimes my muscles burn in the poses. Ouchie. But I still feel better and more relaxed when I finish.

  4. "Titleless,"

    I'm right there with you re: the burn and I'm not even going to talk about the Power Yoga that I've attempted at home.

    The balance poses have my body absolutely trembling at times...
