End of Week Review 1/22/15

I am listening right now, as I write you, to Martin Luther King Jr's speech. Have you taken that time this week with Martin Luther King Jr Day? Can you imagine the abuse heaped on people because of their skin color? Atrocious.This man of God died as a result of standing up for the rights of all people to be treated equal. No one deserves to be treated as less than human, yet it still happens with different labels regardless of heritage: men vs. women, fat vs. thin, young vs. old, right-handed vs left, and so on. It even reverses the other way. I have been treated with prejudices in my own life. I was told that I was sinful because I am left-handed. I was treated poorly by Christian men because I was a woman in Christian martial arts--holding the same belt rank as my husband. I have been treated poorly because I am from Ohio living in Michigan while I seeking a job in gyms (not all of the managers, just about 1/2 of them). I am looked down upon because I am short and slender. Do I hold grudges over it? No. Instead I tell you this to bring across a point- all prejudice is wrong; it affects every one of us. Here is the honest truth: any form of prejudice is sinful. James 2:1-13  Let's treat everyone with respect because at the foot of the cross we are all equal; Jesus died for all that all may have the opportunity for salvation (Colossians 3:10-12). photo: www.CNN.com.
In a cyber-world of haters and memes, let us lift others up with the love of Jesus instead.

Exercise Tips:A Very Misunderstood Machine in the Gym

You may have seen a similar machine in the gym. The assisted chin-up/dip machine is frequently misunderstood and misused by a number of members, likely to cause injury when used incorrectly.

The principle of this equipment is to REDUCE the amount of weight you are pulling/pressing. The number on the weight stack is SUBTRACTED from your body weight to give you the weight you are actually pulling or pressing. The way it works is this: decide how much you are able to pull up and subtract that number from your weight; for example, if you weigh 150# and want to pull 100#, place the pin in the 50# weight on the stack first. Standing on the foot pads while holding the handles, place one knee on the kneeling pad, then the other. If it is too much, DON"T JUST GET OFF! Instead, relax your abs and let the knee pad (while you are still on it) rise back up, then step off one foot at a time. Take the pin to a higher weight on the stack. You will probably be able to pull up more than you are able to press up with the tricep dip portion. This machine is a great substitute for the chin-up bar with a band assist because it is stable and safe to do alone-- if used correctly. photo: Fitnessdirect.com

Have a blessed week!
