geez gw, 45lbs. is pretty darn good. if you can do that with isolated curls, chin shrugs, standing deltoid flys, inclined flys, and reverse tricep curls, you will get blasted in no time. do you should have a curl/tricep bar? i like to change up a set of the dumbbells with the bar.

ok, now you've got me motivated. i'm gettin out the weights this week. wait, i'm busy, ok, by next week!!!

Gym at lunch, rower, treadmill, bike and some core body work on the ball.

I'm contemplating getting a weight set and a bench for home, I think my dh may finally crack if I do that!!!

What really good exercises can be done while sitting at the computer? Now that I am an executive chef, I need to know that. Did anyone notice my new status?????????

Congrats. on your promotion, your voice is really known through the forums!

what good exercises can be done? why don't you ask jeeves?http://ask.com/

what most exercises would probably be are called 'isometric', where you tense your arms and legs against your desk, walls, other limbs, etc., and suck in your stomach for a few seconds at a time. you'l be trimmer in no time!

On the other hand, I'll probably be cycling later.
