We’re always on the lookout for great new blogs to follow. We know everyone’s path to fitness is different, and that’s why it’s important to consider more than one voice. We recently discovered Wine to Weightlifting, a health and fitness blog run by Jennifer Lynn. A self-proclaimed “huge proponent of ladies strength training,” Jennifer’s blog is filled with recipes, fitness tips, reflection, weekly “lady lifter spotlights” and this cool thing she does called #WODswap. Her writing has also appeared in the Tabata Times, which we also visit frequently.
Check out this excerpt from a recent blog, “Scaling is relative” below:
The old me was all about RX. I would long for the day when I could put those letters next to my name, and even would sometimes do a workout prescribed just because I physically could, not necessarily because it was the smartest choice. When I did “Grace” for the first time RX (30 clean and jerks for time) it was at about 90% of my 1RM; for 30 reps, that was a lot. But then I longed for the day when I could snatch 95# just so that I could add Isabel (30 snatches for time) to my list.
I can snatch 95# quite consistently now, but still Isabel is just a dream that seems far away.
Because now I train smarter.
