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

Playlist #2- Songs I Workout to

Some of the songs I have most recently added to my workouts!

I don’t know about you, but I need a little beat to take my mind off of what I am doing. Helps me push harder, do more, and achieve my goals. I live and breathe music. It touches my soul. Some people wonder why I have a hard time working out without it. I wonder the same about why they would choose otherwise. ❤

100lbs Squats!

Promising myself that I am breaking 100lbs next week! 🙂

(Ignore the scary faces)

This is the result of 6 months of hard work. Everyone has to start somewhere. You just do what you can and work from there 🙂 There is no shame in squatting with just the bar (45lbs) or 5lb hand weights etc. If you are afraid of using the machines, or how to do proper form on certain exercises, ask the trainers at the gym! That is what they are there for! Mine have helped me so much, and I am so very appreciative.

The hard thing now is finding the time to do my workouts! I am currently working two jobs double shifts every day. I really need to catch up on my debt and pay my bills! So here it goes!

No Life

Please let me know if you ever see my doing something with bad form, or if I can fix something! I do my best to make sure I do things correctly, but most of these things I am learning on my own so I will get them wrong at times!
