woman doing bird dog pose

I did 50 bird dogs a day for a week — and the results surprised me

This is the second week-long exercise I’ve done recently that is named for a position a dog adopts. This one refers to the still, intensely focused stance a bird dog such as a pointer will take when it has located game – muzzle forward, leg raised. The other was the fire hydrant, which shouldn’t need an explanation.

Oh, OK: Ask yourself, what does a dog tend to do when it comes across a fire hydrant? Any fire hydrant? Even if he has passed a fire hydrant two minutes earlier. There you go. (Read what happened when I did 100 fire hydrants a day for a week here.)
