Keeping Fit Kenggy's Way


Yes, Kenggy's tummy is round. She is rotund.

EJ noticed Kenggy always clean herself lying on her back with at least one of her limbs fully stretched in the air like this.

Recently EJ chanced upon a picture of a fitness exercise and thought that exercise move is similar to Kenggy's favourite pose.

It was found out that this 'Bicycle Crunch' move is one of the most effective abdominal exercises as it place emphasis on the obliques. Lie flat on your back (like Kenggy), hold one leg in the air with knee bent so that your other lower leg is parallel to the floor. Place your hands behind your head and contract your abs. Lift your right shoulder off the floor, bringing your right elbow to your left knee while extending your right leg at the same time. Return to your starting position, and repeat on the opposite side.

EJ tried this 'Bicycle Crunch' and was sore at the abdomen the next day.

Well, those who wish to have six-pack abs should try this exercise. Unfortunately Kenggy's always a one-pack!

Well Kenggy I would try that exercise if I was sure I could get up off the floor after.
You look very elegant giving your demonstration.

Kenggy, you make it look so easy, but we (including our human) don't think we could get up off the floor after, either! :-p

Exercise? sounds like too much work for us. Kenggy, you're gorgeous no matter how many packs you have.

Kneggy, good for you to do your exercises like that. If our Person got down on the floor to do that, she would never get up again. Hope all of you have a great day.

Magic does this too....sadly because she actually get round her well padded survival pack.

Our mom doesn't think she could even get down on the floor, much less get up!

Kenggy...that's one way to stay fit and trim!

Annie Bear said...

Look at you, Kenggy, doing your bicycles. You're fit. You just keep your six pack under a nice, soft, feminine belly.

Dear oh deary me - YAM-aunty, if she ever got into that position, would run the risk of being stuck there for ever! Kudos to Kenggy!!

Kenggy, we think rotund is beautiful!

Our Mamacita is round too and hooks one paw into the sofa arm and cleans herself that way without tipping over. Kenggy is much more limber!

Kenggy will be very happy when you see how successful her exercise routine is.
Lindy says, "Hi, Kenggy, I am a little bit overweight, too. My dad takes me for nice long walks, but my mom only walks me as far as the car, then into the bank and the post office. She was going to take me to the hardware store yesterday. It's my favorite because they give me treats, but my mom had sore feet. Sigh. Please say hi to the other cats from me and my mom."
Love, Lindy and Kay

ha ha, we always wonder how supple our cats are and how easily they bend into position (and never seem stiff when they lie around sleeping a lot)!! Thanks for visiting. Love Helen Darcy and Bingley

I just came back from my Yoga gym and must say that Kenggy is very good in Yoga teaching, we did almost the same exercise today, lol !
