George and Laura are Getting a Son-In-Law

"President and Mrs. George W. Bush are happy to announce the engagement of their daughter, Jenna Bush, to Mr. Henry Hager, son of the Honorable and Mrs. John H. Hager of Richmond, Virginia." "Miss Bush and Mr. Hager became engaged Wednesday, August 15, 2007."

I always pictured Barbara as the settling down type.

Talk about striking oil!

Says: Iceman at August 17, 2007 08:51 AM

Hi - I'm here from Kelly's blog. Barbara may have too much going on upstairs to want to settle down with someone who worked for Daddy's crew. Jenna, not so much.

One of the best activities for getting your body into shape and slimming down is something that a lot of women are scared to attempt. Weightlifting can be a daunting activity for any beginner especially in the crowded gym environment. Seeing the scores associated with overly muscled men because they throw about ridiculously heavy levels of weight can scare many through the weight room and keep them happy and comfortable hovering over their stationary bicycles or treadmills. This is not always a good option for someone who is bodyweight and get in condition however and building true muscle should be part of anyone's exercise and weight loss regimen. Muscle helps to burn fat and muscle also assists shape the body- so choosing a weightlifting program for women can be hugely helpful for them within achieving their goals.

But how does one go about choosing such a program if they really are a beginner? Well, as may be the case with beginning any new activities the wisest advice would be to simply take it slow. You don't have to rush in and pick up the heaviest weight or advanced program you learn about to start making progress. In fact, this has become the easiest way to impede your progress. Your goal is to get in shape, not hurt yourself. In addition, you don't even need to lift free weights to build significant amounts of muscle.

In any gym environment there are usually a number of machines that you can use in your weightlifting program. One of the trainers on-site or members in the gym can surely help you get acclimated if this is the first time. Your goal as a beginner should be to incorporate as many muscles as you possibly can into each movement you make. For instance, first-time weightlifters are probably wasting their time by doing sets Ab Machines of bicep curls. Rather, choose a compound movement like dips or pull ups utilizing a machine that recruits many muscle groups at the same time. Performing these exercises will let you work your biceps, triceps, delts (shoulder blades), upper back, trapezius, and the muscles of your entire forearm. In the same period of time it would take you to do a few models of curls to simply hit your biceps or even push downs you've worked an excellent portion of your entire chest.

The same is true for the lower body. Many women assume that the weightlifting program must consist of such singular exercises as leg extensions or lower leg curls. Instead, a few sets of high rep body weight squats will provide you with much bigger bang for the buck. Body weight squats are simply just performed by standing upright and squatting down until your thighs are about parallel with the ground making sure to maintain your knees behind your toes. This one exercise can function your glutes (butt), leg biceps (hamstrings), quadriceps, calves and truth be told, even your abdominals. Add a couple of sets of push ups to these exercises already mentioned and you have worked your entire body.

As you can see, developing a weightlifting program for ladies to help them build muscle and burn fat is not as difficult as once perceived. Taking it slow and simple will be your key to a healthy and effective weight-loss program.

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
