Of course part of overall well-being is being physically fit and active – to help us tackle whatever life may bring. Being physically fit may mean different things to different people. These days, I personally like hiking, walking (my dog Riley), HIIT training with stair runs, yoga, Pilates Pro Works, and a good amount of SoulCycle! Someone else might be into doing every Tough Mudder he can find in the country (yes, I know someone like this).
Most important is that we are active everyday in some fashion, avoiding the pitfalls of a sedentary life. Incorporating physical activity into our daily lives is a key contributor to avoiding chronic disease in the long run!

How to do an Oblique Curl
I happen to love this video. It’s a little vanilla as far as videos, but it demonstrates excellent form for oblique curls, so that you aren’t tweaking your neck, and you are really getting the maximum benefit from the exercise. I also like to touch the oblique muscle while curling, to help really focus on what’s being worked.
