Workout: Tuesday 6/11/14

So already I am behind on my schedule! *grrr* I was SUPPOSED to do leg day on Monday…but hey I guess everything doesn’t always go as planned and we just have to improvise ;). This workout was particularly hard for me, possibly because it was my first time at the gym since I got sick. I didn’t get to get everything in, but what I missed I will add in later on today after work!

  • 15 minute warm up on the elliptical
  • Leg extension machine x12 (3 sets)
  • I WAS going to do the leg curl machine afterwards, but you know…some ladies need their social time and thus decide that they need to do it while they are “working out”…. Makes me so angry. DO NOT DO THIS!!! There are people who go to the gym to actually accomplish something rather than exercising their jaw muscles… Have a little respect and consideration for others <3.

Sorry about the rant, might feel a little strongly about this :-p.

Workout Tuesday 5/21/2014

Goood Morning!!! ❤

So yesterday I officially went on my first bike ride in who knows how many years. It all came back too, I didn’t fall off and face plant onto the cement (yay haha).

Look at my little biker self :-p

Anywaysss… My roommate has been biking to and from work for sometime now and I can see why she does it (besides having a completely crappy car that breaks down on her all the time…). It was a decent workout, and I could really feel it in my quads for the small amount of time we spent riding around the neighborhood. Great way to get out and about, and even participate in some cool fundraisers/charity events (such as the Tour De Cure!).

So back to my workout:

  • Romanian Deadlifts
  • Smith Machine Squats- Narrow (hip width), Wide (outside of hips), and Sumo.
    • 20lbs x12 (1 set of each)
      • superset with 20 lunges (alternating 10 on each leg)
    • 40lbs x12 (1 set of each)
      • superset with 20 lunges

Small break because my workout buddy FORGOT she had a meeting at work so we had to break it up and go back when she was done :-p (workout fail)

Concluding with a nice stretching sesh, and a good nights sleep! ❤

Keep fighting! Keep pushing towards your goals :). It may take longer than you would like but you will get there one day!

Workout Thursday 5/8/14

  • Workout 5/8/2014
    • 7:00am gravity class
    • 7:30am stabilyze class
    • Romanian deadlifts (I can go a lot further down because unlike most of these people in these videos I am actually flexible baha)
    • Leg Press Machine with 20 lunges in-between sets (40 total)
    • Hip abduction machine
      • So what I do is spread my legs so I can feel it in the upper/side of my butt/leg and I do little bounces back and forth keeping the muscle engaged the entire time and squeezing as I go the furthest out I can (“pulsing” is the word I am looking for!).
      • So 5 turns of 10 bounces (not sure what else to call it lol) 3 sets of each
      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aB67P2N-iHE lol usherrrrrrr
    • Smith machine squats so 5 total sets increasing weight and pushing till failure towards the end!
    • Standing calf raises
    • Landmine lunges
      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMraJKe1Kxg
      • Sort of like that but I take the bar to one side dip down into a lunge then push back up doing the normal landmine move to the other side, then I dip down into a lunge onto the other side. I did this for 1 minute and I usually rest for 30 seconds and then go again for 5 sets…butt I was a little tired so I had 1 minute on and 1 minute rest x5.
      • Just make sure to keep abs engaged, and push off your heels, keeping proper lunge form. Do not round the back and watch the bar, if you dip it too low your back rounds and the bar can come out of the plate if you are using one to hold the bar in place! (I believe this is about ittttt maybeh…)
    • Hip adduction machine
      • 130lbs x 12 (3 sets)
    • Good nice and long stretching session!!!

Leg day 5-8-14 (word document for those of you who would like to look at it that way!

All done! ❤
