While watching the Biggest Loser last night, they had a quiz about health from Prevention Magazine. One of the questions was: which exercise will help you most in the long run...squats or push-ups?
I have to say that I was mildly surprised by the answer, but after I thought about it for a while, it makes total sense. Squats work on your lower body creating better balance and a stronger stance lessing the chance for falls later in life which result in broken hips. I am happy to report that I will never do another push-up in my life!! From now it's only squats for me.
Well now that's probably not the best answer either. I'm thinking that both exercises are very important to an exercise routine even though I would dread both.
Last week, I started working out with weights. My boys are enjoying watching me grunt and moan while lifting measly amounts with dumbbells. I'll keep working on it.
