Single-Arm Dumbbell Row and Rotation

Grab a dumbbell in your right hand, bend your knees, and hinge forward at the hips to lower your torso until it’s almost parallel to the floor. Let the dumbbell hang at arm’s length (a). In one motion, bend your elbow to pull the weight toward you, rotating your torso to the right (b). Pause, then slowly return to start.

Homemade Corn Dogs from Peaches Please:

  • Peanut Oil, for frying
  • 1 C Flour
  • 1 C Corn Meal
  • ¼ C Sugar
  • 1½ tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp Baking Soda
  • ⅛ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 C Buttermilk (good, real, thick buttermilk)
  • ¼ C pureed fresh Corn (kernels from 2 to 3 large ears)
  • 1 Egg, large
  • 8 Hot Dogs
  • 2 Tbsp Cornstarch
  • Honey, optional
Instructions
  1. Put the oil on the stove or in a fryer to heat to 360 to 375 degrees F. (if frying on the stove, a tall narrow pot works best due to the length of the corn dogs).
  2. Whisk together the flour, corn meal, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda and black pepper.
  3. In a separate bowl or measuring cup, mix together the buttermilk, corn puree and egg.
  4. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until it just comes together and then let it sit for about 10 minutes to let the buttermilk work its magic.
  5. Hot dogs tend to be wet when they come out of the pack, so dry them off with a paper towel. Then dredge the dogs in the cornstarch, skewer with a bamboo skewer or disposable wood chopstick and set aside.
  6. When the oil hits 360 degrees F, you can start frying the corn dogs. Pour the batter into a pint class and dip the dog in the batter. You may need to do a little manual cleanup to make sure the dog is coated or to remove excess batter.
  7. Fry the dogs in the hot oil for 4 to 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Remember, the hot dog is cooked, so the world won’t end if you under cook it. When ready, remove the corn dog to a wire rack to cool a little before devouring. Repeat with the rest of the dogs, keeping an eye on the oil temperature so it stays between 360 and 375.

FOR BEGINNERS!

Push-ups are currently my favourite! I do them randomly when I am bored and I just love it so much. The really work your arms, shoulders and pecs. I love it! 

TECHNIQUE

  • Start in a plank position with your hands directly underneath your shoulders at shoulder width or slightly wider.

  • Hold your spine in neutral alignment

  • Flex your elbows to lower your chest toward the ground.

  • Hold the same neutral alignment in your spine as you push back up to the starting position. 

ERRORS TO WATCH FOR

  • Sagging in the centre of your body

  • Hands too narrow or too wide

MODIFICATION

  • Perform with knees on the floor.
