Personal Training: Helping a friend day 30


Hello All My FitFam,

Hopefully everyone has seen the results from the election and have been able to express their feelings towards the final results. My Facebook was blowing up with all kinds of post talking about it (good and bad), and I decided to write a Facebook post that was a bit joking, and less argumentative for the sake of drama. I don’t express my political views on my blogs and/or social media very often, besides twitter mostly, but when I do, I try to be tasteful. Today was another workout at the gym, John did make it in for his workout, and I am sore from mine (yesterday and today’s). As always, feel free to leave your workouts in the comment section of the blog, love hearing other people’s routines. 

John’s workout:


Dynamic stretches:

  • Skips
  • Walking glute stretch
  • torso twist using a 20lb mini barbell

Workout Session:

  • Stationary bike: 25 minutes, level 6, RPMs 80-90
  • Treadmill: 20 minutes, 2.0 incline, 3.5 speed
  • Planks: 3 sets, 1:14

Cool down:

  • Walk 2 laps around the gym

John did very well at his planks today, he managed the treadmill with no pain, and he said the stationary bike went well but he could feel the burn for sure – which is awesome and to be expected. Good job John. 


My workout:


I did not participate in a warm up exercise. oops.


Workout Session: Full body 

  • Wall push up 3 sets, 10 reps (I decided to do standard pushups instead of wall push ups)
  • Closed grip high pulley cable pulldown: 85lb, 3 set, 10 reps
  • Overhead dumbbell triceps extension: 15lb, 3 sets, 10 reps per arm
  • In and out plyo squat: 3 sets, 10 reps
  • Body weight squat: 3 sets, 10 reps
  • Flutter kick on bench: 3 sets, 15 reps (I decided to use the floor instead of the bench)
  • Planks: 3 sets, 1:00 

Cool down:

  • Walked 2 laps around the gym

Overall my upper body is very sore. lol.

Hello! I have just recently graduated with my exercise science degree May 2016, yay! I am more than happy; and decided that since my passion is for fitness/health, I would write about it and share my journey with others because in my opinion health is everything (both mental and physical). I am 24 years old, and reside in the states. I enjoy being active anyway possible and want to get my cert in personal trainer and also be a wellness coach. I love to eat and don't believe in eliminating, but rather moderation. I hope that my blog post will inspire, motivate and encourage you all to want to be the healthiest person you can be! It all begins with "I can" and "I will" :) -Shay-lon P.S feel free to follow me on social media and or email me, l don't mind answering questions or simply networking. Would love to hear from you all.

    1. Hey!
      How are ya doing?
      I don’t have a typical go to food when it comes to after my workouts, depends on what I am in the mood for, but honestly, I like eating a high protein meal like oatmeal with a side of almond milk or some almonds with a smoothie.. ha. 🙂 but it depends, some people like eating carbs after their workout, which is fine depending on the type of workout they did – such as CrossFitter.. and if that is the case, I manage to eat something like toast with avocados or a protein shake with bananas or something that isn’t going to have too high of fats – unless it is the better of the fats.


      Never be afraid to ask me any further questions, I love being of help 🙂
