Get Fit with the Men'??s Health Triceps Crunch

Mens H

This last few weeks of the summer before our child starts kindergarten is bittersweet. It'??s pretty sweet that I get to do everything I want to do with her before she disappears into the school system for the next'?¦gasp'?¦13 years. We'??ve gotten pedis, been to the Museum of Fine Arts, had our share of sushi and ice cream, went on a princess picnic (complete with tiaras and fancy food), and we got her hair cut professionally for the first time.

The bitter part is how I feel about my gym's daycare hours. They are ridic. Why is it closed between noon and 4:30pm? What you're telling me is that I have to rush out in the morning or deal with dinnertime/rush hour traffic just to get a workout in? Thanks people.

This means that for the past few weeks my workout routine has been downgraded to my Cybex Home Arc Trainer and Wii. Don'??t get me wrong. I love a good cardio blast in front of the TV as much as the next gal, but I miss the weight machines at the gym. Three times a week you would find me on a weight machine, doing something to make something leaner and stronger.

With this confinement driving me crazy, I decided to take things into my own hands. Quite literally. I picked up my husband'??s Men'??s Health Triceps Crunch. Yes, I realize I am not a man. But I do however have triceps, so I thought why not? Although this mimics one of my favorite tricep pulldown machines at the gym.

This addition is fantastic for when you have to make your workout an in prisonat-home one. It adapts to your own customized fitness level with these user-friendly high-grade interchangeable resistance bands. Just clip and adjust however many bands you need for however much resistance you want. There are seven levels, but some of them really are just for the tough guys.

Spiked Apple Cider Pops

September in the South is, in my opinion, still summer.  The eighties and nineties always prevail and make the traditional fall flavors that I crave so much slightly out of reach. As much as I want to relax and sip on some hot cider, at the moment, I still need something iced. more

Something else I love is the multi-station door anchor. It means that I can use it (5'8" lady) and so can hubs (a 6'2" dude). Just drape it over the top of the door, then close it. There'??s even a little sign that hangs on the other side that basically says '??don'??t open'? to stop little ones (those who can read anyway) from doing just that.

MH triceps

The Triceps Crunch comes with a complete exercise guide and DVD and allows you to strengthen and carve triceps and upper body, work full core and lower body muscles. I can work my abs, my obliques, my triceps, biceps, back and on and on and on. Finally something for when I'm confined to my house and unable to get to the gym. And let's face it. "Mommy's exercising, honey. Don't open the door. It's not safe." It's genius. I might just leave that in the door jam for hours and see if anyone notices.

The Men'??s Health Triceps Crunch is available on for $29.99.
