Late Night Weights

Missed weights in the AM due to a toddler in my bed when my alarm went off so we ventured out with the big boys and lifted last night. Definitely felt those split squats again as well as the lunges last night….and still feeling this morning. I’ve been dragging for the last day and a half and I am hoping to get out of this funk some time soon because it’s really getting old.

Jello Arms

I have to say with increasing my weights today my arm workout was much more fulfilling than last week! My arms were definitely shaking for each rep of the bench press. Working my way up to 8-12 reps, only able to do three sets of 5 right now but you have to start somewhere. Feeling much better like the funk is starting to lift. Looking forward to keeping on track with full body day tomorrow.

Hope everyone has a great day!

This Girl’s Quads Are On Fire!

Couldn’t resist a little Alicia Key’s after this morning’s leg workout! As hard as today’s workout was it felt amazing. Here’s a run down of what we did today:

  • Barbell Squats
  • Barbell Lunges
  • Barbell Deadlifts
  • Front Squats
  • Clean Barbells
  • Leg Press
  • Goblet Squats

Tomorrow is my outdoor run and I know I will be feeling this workout. I think this first week of training has been a success and can’t look forward to continuing on this journey!

Weight Training Day #2

So today what the total body weight lifting day and let me tell you, it did it’s job! Here’s a list of what we did today:

  • Side Lunge w/ Dumbbell
  • Dumbbell Deadlift
  • Hammer Curls
  • Split Squats
  • Alternating Deltoid Raise
  • Lat Pull-Downs
  • Clean and Press Barbells

My favorites today were the deadlift, split squats, and the clean & press. My last round of split squats it was hard to stand up so I know we’re on to something!

I’m so happy that I’m not going at this alone and can have someone with me to keep me pushing thru so shout out to Wendy! Saw this on Pinterest and it made me think of us this morning:
