Went skiing at a big mountain yesterday. Estimating I skied about twice as many vertical feet as usual in an hour less than my usual ski day. My legs were noodles.
@Meerkat You look good on that bike! Next you'll need a pink fringed leather jacket like Pinky Tuscadero :) (You know so many of those old characters, it's a trivia quiz) It does feel good to get out for a bike ride doesn't it? I got my bike unburried and ready, but it snowed again.

I rode bike yesterday and my legs were wweak this morning.No rain for months but a few light showers.So sand is like riding in sugar at times. On road cars come by and dust me out so I stay mostly in yard or on our trials ,small fallen tree limbs get in my wheel spokes 😖.

About to go for another ride in a few.:thumbs:

I started my sit-ups last night. I used to do 50 sit-ups and 50 push-ups right before bed. Took me all of 3 min. I won't mention the sorry number I did yesterday, but will say I will be working my way back up to 50 🥴 I don't have any back issues, but my back feels better when I do sit-ups.

Since all gyms are shut, I broke out the bands at the hotel. It's not the same as weights, but it's the best I can do for now...

Curls x4
Overhead triceps extension x3
Chest press x3
Chest flyes x3
Tricep kickbacks X3
Rows x3

Did my sit-ups and matching number of pushups which isn’t a huge deal but thought I might as well do them as not. I also did some spin exercises that are for balance and equilibrium-Wow that was funny. They do help though and I could tell the difference after just a few attempts:)

@LadyLocust is the spin thing where you hold a baseball bat and bend over it and spin around? That is a riot...

Today's workout with the bands:

Front delt raises x3
Side(lateral) delt raises x3
Overhead press x3

I'm trying to figure out a way to do pulldowns but I can't find anything up high to anchor the bands to...

Heehee nope. They are actually ballet spins with point of reference tracking so you spin without getting dizzy. I’m no ballerina but like the exercises. There are some really good foot and ankle exercises to but I haven’t done them for ages.
They have pull up bars that are like spring rods for your doorway. You could loop a band over one to pull down but wouldn’t have it to do other exercises with. I’m not sure how difficult or easy they are to put up or remove.

I thought about those bars, but that would be a hassle to travel with. I'd bring my dumbbells if I didn't have to deal with having them in the car. Bands are convenient and don't take much space. I don't really like using them but it's better than nothing...

I didn’t even think about traveling. Can you loop it around a doorknob then sit with your back to it and pull it in front of you? Sorry to display my ignorance. I only used an exercise band once about a hundred years ago. Maybe they’ve changed.

I tend to use them outside the hotel room and loop the band around a post or railing. For pulldowns I need an overhead anchor point, which is hard to come by. Oh well. I'm getting some other exercises done at least...

So I mentioned not being a ballerina, but if I was gonna be, it would be more like this. Just discovered this gal-amazing! Roundtable Rival is also amazing. Getting ready to go in and do my sit-ups and push-ups for day 5.
Hopefully link works

Negative on the link. It shows me a slightly creepy digital frowny face...
