Week Five|Day Two Dec. 5th Workout

Not going to lie, I was nervous about today’s workout being a leg day because after missing two days at the gym, I knew I had lost some upper body strength and I was really hoping I didn’t lose any lower body/core strength, thankful, everything went as planned! 

 

Workout:

Superset:

 
  • Barbell back squat: 3 x 8, 140 lb
  • Standing calf raise: 3 x 8, 120 lb

Superset:

  • Barbell romanian deadlift: 3 x 8, 190 lb (2 sets without the belt & 1 set with the belt)
  • DB lunge: 3  x 8, 50 lb

Superset:

  • Barbell curl: 3 x 8, 55 lb
  • Lying triceps extension: 3 x 8, 30 lb
 
  • Hanging leg raises: 3 x 20

Cardio: (3 times)

  • Body bar squat: 20 seconds/30 seconds/45 seconds, 3 lb
  • Kettlebell swings: 20 seconds/30 seconds/45 seconds, 10 kg

Overall the only hard part of the workout was the bicep curls at 55 this week. Last week it was easier. My deadlifts I did without a belt to see if I could pull this weight with no belt and actually did a good job but utilized the belt by the 3 set because of how fatigued I was and didn’t want to mess up the lower back.

You can assume I have a love for fitness & a love for Wonderwoman -- both assumptions are correct. I am an ACSM certified personal trainer of 7+ years -- I currently reside in Ohio and live a simplistic life at the age of 29. If I am not lifting, I am eating, sleeping, traveling, exploring, or movie watching. I recently moved during a pandemic, now I am focused on self care (self love), building a business of my own in personal training, becoming a professional blogger, starting a podcast and doing things that make me happy! I am a sister, daughter, and loyal friend --- I love everyone's dog and I am on a mission to pet as many dogs as possible everywhere I go! LOL. My mission is to talk health (physical/mental), design programming, motivational speak, learn, grow, prosper, build others and make as many people smile as possible because I want nothing more than to be the change I seek in the world.
