FREEBIE for Locals in North San Diego – Fantastic Mr. Fox, the movie!

Posted on 30. Mar, 2010 in For Kids

What to do with the kids now that Spring Break is rolling around? Better yet, what to do with the kids for cheap or FREE?  Here is one way to kick off Spring Break, a free movie. 

The Carlsbad Dove Library is playing the “FANTASTIC MR. FOX” on Wednesday, March 31, 2010 at 6:00 pm for FREE.  This movie is rated PG 13 (for smoking and slang humor), but the reviews about George Clooney as Mr. Fox and Meryl Streep as Mrs. Fox are astounding. 

Grab the kids, the neighbor’s kids and some treats then head down to the Dove Library, off El Camino Real and Alga Rd. in Carlsbad.

Exercise for Week of March 29, 2010

Posted on 29. Mar, 2010 in Exercises

Amazing Abs, just in time for summer and the beach! Or if you are really determined, SPRING BREAK?

Bicycle Abs

Forward & Backward

Sit feet on floor and lean back to approximately 45 degree angle. Hands next to you on the floor.  Begin by cycling your legs in a forward motion for a count of 25.  At the completion of 25 reps, don’t let your legs rest, and pedal in a backward motion for a count of 25. 

CUES: Be sure to hold your abs tight and remain in a tight 45 degree angle.  Once you start to slouch, readjust and continue pedaling.  Make sure your feet are pushing on the out/down pedal and pulling in on the up pedal.  Do not rest your weight into your hands or wrists.  The hands are merely for balance.  The advanced move here it to lift your hands/arms straight above your head.  This may sound like a “easy” ab exercise, but this is also a grueling quad exercise. 

Do this exercise 2 times per day at least 4 times per week.  You will see amazing stamina, quad strenght and beautiful abs.
