Total-Body Strength Workout
hawke&co | Nov 4, 2019

You’ve got several new moves to try in today’s strength workout! From deadlifts to triceps presses, this workout is all about focusing on technique to get the moves right. If this is your first time trying some of these moves, don’t be afraid to take the first round slowly—so you really learn the exercise first. You can also practice the moves without weights first, then add your weight for the second and third rounds. Pick up the pace as your body warms up, and as you get more accustomed to the moves.

And of course, when you do that bonus move at the end—push yourself as much as you can! That move is all about moving quickly and getting breathless. We always suggest doing a quick warm-up first, and finishing with a soothing cool-down, like this one.

Tomorrow is a rest day, so make sure today counts!

Soon, dedicated leaf-peepers will be taking to the roads to hunt down and drive (and walk) among one of nature's most curious displays. But with only a limited number of days to choose from, where are the best places to see fall foliage?

First off, start with foliage reports or maps and be sure to gauge exactly where and when you'll want to go; peak foliage times can vary for different locations. Assuming you can schedule your visit to the trees at just the right time, here are several of the best places to see fall foliage around the country. And while you're there, add in some wine tastings, antique shopping and hiking – because soon enough, we'll all be hibernating, just like the trees, as winter comes!
