Upper Body And Core Strength Workout

Hi Hungry Friends! I’m back this week with something I haven’t shared in a long, long time: a new strength workout. Specifically, a upper body and core strength workout!

Part of the reason I haven’t shared a strength workout in a long time is because I haven’t done strength workouts consistently since … well honestly, I can’t even remember when!

And by that I mean, I haven’t been working with weights in the gym because while we were in NYC I chose to save money by not having a gym membership and focusing mainly on running workouts and bodyweight strength workouts that I was able to do at home without any equipment. Lower-body strength training (e.g., lunges, squats, etc.) was definitely a big focus for me during half-marathon training through the first half of this year, but with that, I definitely neglected my upper body strength.

But now, our new apartment complex has it’s own gym and you can bet your butt I’ve already taken advantage of it and I’m super pumped to get back to a true total body workout routine and some classic strength training workouts like the one I’m about to share here.

For a health and fitness blogger living in New York City, I’m a very slow adopter of new workouts, so it’s only fitting that it’s taken me this long to finally try Orangetheory Fitness: a group personal training workout class that promises to keep your body burning calories for up to 36 hours after the workout — or as they call it, “the afterburn.”

4 Feel-Good Habits You Can Start Now

One really important thing I’ve learned about being healthy over the past 5 or 6 years, it’s that it goes far beyond what you eat and exercising.

It’s about how you feel overall — physically and mentally — and diet and exercise are only a small piece of the healthy living puzzle. The other important thing that I’ve learned is that everyone is different: The healthy living habits that work best for me might not be the same for you. That’s OK.

How My Dad Tackled His Type 2 Diabetes
My sister, my dad and me on the Brooklyn Bridge last summer.

Today I’m sharing something unlike anything I’ve ever shared here on Hungry Runner before.

Today I’m sharing a story, or rather, inviting my dad to share his story, about what I feel is a truly incredible transformation. A journey that shows just how powerful eating well and exercising can really be. And also how healthy living doesn’t have to be crazy complicated, the way it’s sometimes made out to be.

Don’t Let This Silly Mindset Hinder Your Health And Fitness Goals

One of the funny things about health and fitness — that I think we all forget too often — is that we are not alone.

Yes, we all have different journeys and obstacles to overcome, but many times we all have similar struggles, too.

I was reminded of this a few weeks ago when I was talking to my cousin. We share similar interests — nutrition, running, wellness, etc. — and were chatting about healthy eating habits.
