Today's challenge was as follows: "Strengthen the muscles along the back of your rib cage with 10 alternating weighted arm pulls." I usually try to complete each challenge before going to work, which gets the day off to a good start. This morning I didn't have any real weights in my room, so I had to improvise! I chose the heaviest thing I could find, which just happened to be a carved and painted replica of a pharaonic head that I had purchased a couple of seasons back from a roadside artisan!
Since I was using only dumbbells, I could bring them out to the "terrace" to do the workout. I know I will be the object of much sympathy when I show you the view I must put up with there!
