Exercise of the Day!!!

 

The Barbell Deadlift (or in this case, the broom deadlift :-p)

  1. Stand feet shoulder width apart in front of the barbell.
  2. Looking straight ahead, squat and grab the barbell with a wide overhand grip.
  3. Make sure your knees are close to the bar.
  4. Push through your heels as you stand erect while holding the barbell below you at arms’ length.
  5. Stand fully erect while holding the completed movement.
  6. Be sure to squeeze your glutes at the top!
  7. Carefully reverse the process, lowering the barbell to the ground.

Avoid

  • Arching your back- your core should be tight, use a mirror to make sure your back is straight throughout the whole movement.
  • Locking your knees.
  • Do not do this exercise if you are experiencing knee pain.
  • If you have any health concerns, you should always check with a doctor before performing specific exercises

Its Tuesday! My Workout.

OMG I cannot apparently spell tonight…

Edited this twice already due to errors!!

So I just worked at the Juice Bar today and had tonight off. So I got to workout! :)- After I was super duper lazy/tired and took a 4 hour nap… yeah that’s right…4 HOURS lol I woke up and was like ommggggg. So I went to the gym at like 7:30ish and you would think hey it’d be decently dead. NO! It has been so busy the past couple of days. So since I got there in time for Body Jam I’d just go for it.

If you don’t know what Body Jam is and you love to dance/love Zumba, you should definitely check it out. It is a Les Mills Group Fitness Class, and boy do I work up a sweat in it. I love to “warm up” with it (or Zumba!).

Here is some real people doing it:

Here is a video with a bunch of French people (in French haha):

Oh yeahhhh:

So that should give you a pretty good idea. It is an hour long, and I get super hot and sweaty in it. So it is definitely a fun cardio workout. You can make it as hard as you want!

Since I tried jumping back in the game a little too fast, causing my sciatica to flare up, I have been focusing on my abs and lower back. So I just basically did a lot of dead lifts, back extensions, supermans, and ab work etc. Was at the gym from 7:30 to 10:00ish so I got a good workout in!

I am also so proud of this girl I recently met while working at the gym! She is going to her first competition this weekend and I couldn’t be happier for her! Pictures and details to come! I really wish her the best. (it is also her first time on a plane, so I hope it is a good experience for her- lord knows how awful I am at flying now…..)

I had my protein shake, and now I am munching on this delicious soup!
