To get a better workout for your butt, hips,thighs, and hamstrings, you can do elevated lunges like I'm doing here.But to get yourself set up to do elevated lunges, you need to start offwith your feet about one and a half to two foot lengths behind the box orthe platform you're using to do the elevated lunges on. Once you are in the starting position, getyour dumbbells and do elevated lunges like this. As you're doing lunges,make sure you keep your head up and look straight ahead. Although this exerciseis called a lunge, you
don't want to lunge forward as you squat down.You want to squat straight up and straight down by keeping your kneesbehind your toes. So, do not let the knee of the elevated leg glide over yourtoes. You want to squat down as far as you can untilthe knee of the leg that's not elevated touches the floor. Make sureyou come down slow enough so your knee only touches the floor. Don't come downso fast that you bang or hurt your knee on the floor. Make sure you do thisexercise on both legs. You want to keep your heels flat on the platformor box at all times while
doing this exercise. If you can't keep yourheels flat, use a lower platform or do regular lunges instead of elevatedlunges. If you want to get an even better butt workoutdoing elevated lunges, focus more on pushing through your heels by curlingup your toes slightly. Another thing you can do for a better buttworkout doing elevated lunges is to pause at the bottom for two to three secondsbefore squatting back up. One more option for getting a better buttworkout is to do elevated lunges on a higher platform. Instead of doing yourelevated lunges on a fiveinch
step, for example, you can better butt workoutdoing elevated lunges on higher five to teninch step or platform.
ReptilTV Special 2 Head Ball Python
Hello my dear Reptil.TV community. Today we've got something really cool, interesting and fascinating for you. We can barely wait to show you! That's why we're doing a Reptil.TV special today! I've been in the reptile business for over 20 years now. But luckily, there are always new and exciting things happening. Today I have something new and exciting for you! Here I have a nice and small Ball Python here. What's beautiful and interesting is, that he not only is one animal but two. Or rather, that he has got two heads. It's clear, that this is a whim of nature. This isn't supposed to be that way. Nature doesn't want or need it.
Apart of all of this, the animal is absolutely healthy. It's eating and growing. It's really nice, wellbehaved and friendly animal. If you would watch it for some time, or hold it in your hand, then you would feel the same way. The animal really is well behaved and beautiful.Today we want to present you this animal. The beautys is a male, or two males. However, you want to address them. As you can see, from this point on, there are two spinal columns. Each head has its own spinal column, beginning from here. Later these two spinal columns join, and there is only one spine at the rear.
That's also the reason for this bump. It's no curvature of the spine. It is the beginning of the second spine that leads to the other head. The rear is faultless, there are no bents or anything else. As we can see, both heads are active, both flick their tongues. Both are independent of each other. Apart from that, that animal is flawless. There are no bents in the spine, or anything else. It has no problems eating, as we want to show you later. If we are successful and get it on tape. Digestion isn't a problem. It's really growing nicely. Right now it's roughly a year old and I would say it weighs about 300 grams. It really did grow well in this year. They are two individuals. You can see it nicely, when it is crawling. One head wants to go in one direction and the second head in another.
In the end, they have to find an agreement. It's really nice to watch the animal. The animal doesn't leave the impression that it is in distress or that it has a bad life. I believe the animal has a good life. This xray image is very interesting. You can see, that from this spot on there are two spines that lead to the corresponding heads. And farther down the back, they become one. That's the reason why you can see a small dent on the animal. It's the spot where the second spine begins. I believe it's too much stress for the animal. With the cameras and us standing around it. In addition, we're not in the animal facilities. timelapse Luckily only one head eats. If both heads would fight over the same prey, that would be a problem.
Ok, you could just feed to mice. I think it would be risky if both heads feed at the same time, because in the esophagus, at the latest, the two mice would meet. Both mice would have to pass each other in some way. That could really be a problem. From this perspective, luckily only one head is voracious and accepted the pray, and is feeding. To my knowledge there are 45 animals that are similar. Respectively snakes of this kind, snakes with two heads. Animals that are healthy, active, feed normally and live a normal life. As I recall it, there is another Carpet Python in the US. There are two Colubrids in the US. I believe they are a Bullsnake and an Earth Colubrid.
And there is supposed to be another animal with two heads, in a zoo in Sri Lanka. It's supposed to be some kind of Colubrid. And there is our beautiful Ball Python. We're really happy that it is a Ball Python, because that is defiantly our species! Last but not least, we need a name for the two guys. Should it be one name for bothé Something like Hydra, or a name from a mythical creature with two heads. Or should we give it two namesé Because they really are two individuals! Then there are names like Tom and Jerry, Stan and Ollie, or whatever names make a nice pair. We want to hear your opinion and discuss that with you!
