One-Legged Push-Up

Start on your hands and knees.
Extend your left leg behind you so it’s parallel with the floor. Engage your abs.
With your leg extended, bend your elbows lowering your torso toward the floor while keeping your left heel in line with your left hip. Straighten your elbows to push yourself away from the floor.
Repeat for a total of 15 push-ups; then lift your right leg for another 15 reps.


The shape your legs makes in this is awesome. Plus, it’s probably wicked difficult.

Dumbbell Push-Up Row

Place a pair of dumbbells about shoulder-width apart on the floor. (A) Grab the handles and position yourself in a pushup position. (B) Lower your body to the floor and then press back up. (C) Once you’re back in the starting position, pull the dumbbell in your right hand up toward the side of your chest. Pause, then return the starting position and repeat with your left hand. That’s 1 rep. Try to prevent your torso from rotating each time you row the weight.

Day’s Tip #7
As an employee for Nike I have learned a lot about the “Nike Free Runs”. What some People do not know is:
There are different types of the Free Runs starting from 3.0 to 7.0
The lower the number means the closer to barefoot running you’ll be doing
For people that want to go on a distance run I wouldn’t pick the free run 3.0. That’s how a lot of athletes get injured. Try the Lunar Glide 3-4 for distance run.
If you are new to the Nike Free Run collection then I would suggest you start off with the 7.0, so your foot gets use to the new feel
The Nike Free Runs are awesome shoes and have the coolest design, but if you pick the wrong type for the wrong workouts then you might not be too happy with your results.

Good advice!

  1.  Check your local adverts. Many products go on special in regular intervals, if you can figure out the ‘pattern’ and buy some of your favorite products when they go on special, you can really save up.
  2. Sign up for your local supermarket’s discount card.
  3. Freeze excess produce. If you have purchased too much produce and are worried about spoilage, consider freezing your fruit and vegetables. This will not decrease the nutritional value and also works out well for future soup or smoothie recipes.
  4. Plan a grocery list. Impulse purchases can really add up, so instead of grabbing random eats that look appetizing at the moment and will actually collect dust in the cupboard, plan a healthy grocery list of essentials in advance.
  5. Buy in bulk. This can save you quite a bit of money in the long run. It’s a good idea to stock up on items that aren’t likely to spoil when they are on sale, for example: peanut butter. You can also buy produce in bulk and freeze (as mentioned above).
  6. Choose generic brands. Many worry about the quality of generic brands, but quite often the generic brands are actually produced by brand name factories with extra capacity. There will not be a noticeable difference in quality, plus you will slash costs.
  7. Visit your local Farmer’s Market and buy in season. Many assume that Farmer’s Markets are more expensive, but in most cases this isn’t true. Buying your produce in season is also much more cost-effective and will taste fresher.
  8. Carry a water bottle. This will keep you from buying potentially more expensive items like juice, soda, or energy drinks while you are out.
  9. Pack your lunch and cook more meals at home. Though it is fun for a treat to eat out, your wallet and your body will thank you if you make an effort to eat at home. You know exactly what you are putting into your food and saving money, win-win.
  10. Start a garden. While this may be an initial investment, growing a few key items in your own home will repay your investment many times over, not only with regards to cost, but also convenience.
