The Aussies come to visit + Staiblity Tricep Dips

It has been a whirlwind of a weekend. Our friends from Australia came to visit us, and are staying on our couch for 12 days. Oh, did I forget to mention that they are on their honeymoon? Ha... It's been great so far! It's always great to reunite especially since we have not seen Glenn in almost 3 years! They are doing everything they can to convince us to move to Australia...running on the beach, sand volleyball, and fresh fish. Hmm... this may not take a lot of convincing.

The love birds.

Even though we have been driving between Indiana and Chicago a lot, I always find time to get in some good workouts. Try starting your week off with my Stability Ball Tricep Dips. Normal dips are great for toning the back side of your arms, but I love to add a stability ball to engage the core and make the workout harder. Trust me, you will feel the burn, but you will love the results.

Equipment Needed: 
Stability Ball
Bench or Chair

1. Sit on the bench or chair with the stability ball in front of you. Place your hands next to your hips on the bench and carefully put your feet on the stability ball. You want the ball to be close to your heels.

2. Tighten your core and glutes, and lift your butt off the bench with your arms. Bend your arms to a 90 degree angle and push back up. Make sure to keep your core engaged to prevent you from falling and to keep your body as close to the bench as possible. Repeat this motion for 15 reps and do 3 sets. 

Sorry this post is so short. We have to head out to South Bend. Until next time my friends. Keep fueling strong! And embrace the burn!


  1. Oh my goodness Kels these were tough! I need more of that!
