100 Exercises for 100 Posts


A couple of weeks ago we realized we were hitting our 100th post on this blog. We decided we would do a post of 100 exercises for our 100th post.  The exercises came quickly enough, but I have been neglectful and didn’t get these up right away.  So today I am going to post the first half of the 100. Next week we will post the 2nd half.  Now a disclaimer.  These are just a listing of a number of exercises, no pictures or descriptions.  We will be using these in our exercise of the week and explaining more about them over time.  This was just an exercise in seeing if we could come up with 100 for our 100th post.  It was actually fairly easy as there are hundreds if not thousands of exercises out there.  All with some utility for some people, or issues people have.

Here are the first 50. If  you want to know about an exercise that you are unfamiliar with just ask.
