Workout Wednesday: Use a Weight Bench

So I feel like a hack. For two weeks in a row, your Workout Wednesday is coming from SELF Magazine. (Click HERE if you missed last week's workout.) I know, I know...can't I come up with this stuff on my own? Yes, I can. But I just flipped through my February issue and found this:

Now, I haven't done any of the above yet, but I can tell that each move is worth trying at least once.

Let me know what you think, eh? My body isn't quite ready for anything like the above.

Little Peanut is, after all, just a few weeks old. I'm only now just starting to feel like I can push the activity envelope a bit. In fact, Hannah and I went to the gym on Monday. She's too little for the nursery, so I strapped her into the little carrier I bought a few months back. Have to say, it worked out quite nicely! She zonked out the whole time I was walking, letting me snag 45 minutes of slow (but steady) cardio.

I'm hoping for a repeat today.

Question: What is your favorite bench-based exercise?
