Not a bad idea..get the kids in fighting shape before taking the ice after a maybe sedentary summer. Looks pretty innocent..push ups, planks, crunches, leg raises...and diamond push ups?
For those not familiar I am attaching a YouTube video.
After watching said video my goalie says "look easy". Of course it looks easy, the dude in the video probably does 50 a day and works out 8 hours. After watching her struggle and giggle and pant through 3 of them, I tried to give them a go.
Whoever invented the diamond push up is a SADIST.
One of the hardest exercises I have ever done with the exception of the pull up...
And like a fool I had told her I was going to do the workout with her so I see MANY a diamond push up in my future.
One of two things will happen: I will die or become the buffest hockey mom out there. Ok maybe just a little more toned, my behind still needs to remain cushioned enough to handle the bleachers..
To be continued...
