    I’ve never taken a self defense class but I would love to! I’m lucky that my gym is actually in my building so I only have to get into the elevator back to my apartment afterwards and not outside/to my car. But great tips!

      That’s good. Glad it’s a safe situation for you!

    Good advice–it is scary being out in the dark! Sometimes I wish everyone in the world was a good person so we didn’t have to worry about these things! What do you do in your job?

    GREAT reminders, Lisa! this is one reason I don’t like to run in the dark, headlamp or not! 😉

    I am always very aware, and I hold my keys out in front of me with the key sticking out – to JAB someone if needed!

    I am trying to recall if I know what your job is?? what do you do? 😀

    Nice workout!

    When I am walking to my car alone, I keep my keys in my hand with them sticking out through my fingers (kind of like spikes). I took a self defense class – and the instructor said the most effective thing you have is your voice!

    I’ve never taken up a self defense class but I am very cautious of my surroundings and do practice safety at all times.
    Nice workout!

    I love the idea of mixing abs to your leg day! I am doing that too and I just find it very effective. After an extreme leg workout, I can feel my abs pre-exhausted and it’s great to target them straightaway.

    Btw, there are some studies that showed partnering arms with your leg-day is also effective.
