It might look like a throwing motion, but it is meant to be very controlled. You actually push up more with the bottom arm & keeping a downward pressure with the top arm, control the amount of the rotation to a minimum because yes it is very simple to take this movement beyond a safe range of motion & yeah if your core is not contracted or is weak, the potential for spine injury is definitely there.You can do them low to high on cables also
On a positive not, I found some decaf coffee that will suffice my taste buds & need for a hot drink after my meals, so will begin the weaning off process.
Also picked up some old fashioned rolled oats, the uhh steel cut ones are so not in my budget.Quite frankly I should of eaten the quick oats up first, though looking at myself in the mirror at the gym, makes me wonder if it is responsible for the pockets of pudge by my knees.
I'm trying to tune my meals up, with counts of the different types of carbs, I was eating veggies without much regard for what they contribute to the meal.Everything needs to be counted, within reason.I eat three diffent meals, so will calculate them, see whats up.What category does sugar fall into ? There is some in my sour cream dip & my salad dressing.
Ha bought some honey for my cheat peanut butter & honey toast once per week..17 g of carb AND 16 g of sugar in one tblsp ?..Gosh..was wondering why I had such a buzz afterwards. Until I read that this type of simple sugar hits the stomach & goes DIRECTLY into the bloodstream via the stomach walls..mystery solved
My pancreas probably hates me, but alas it tastes good, what can I say...
