My Gym Workout – Nov. 23rd

Sport, Exercise, Gym, Dumbbell, Health

Hello FitFam,

I have to admit by saying that today I was not prepared for the gym, not that my body was hurting or my brain wasn’t functioning right, it was the fact that I had not came into the gym with a plan written down for my workouts. I have been doing well with having my workouts written down prior to entering the gym, I bring my notepad and a pen with me and write down the amount of weight as I stroll along, but today it was a blank canvas and it caught me off guard. I was close to calling it a “cardio” day but if I did cardio for a full hour or so, then my gains would risk leaving. What I did instead was call it an upper body/Ab day since leg day was yesterday and I didn’t have any particular parts of the body that I wanted to work on today. With this being said, it was a short list, simple list but exercise doesn’t haven’t to be long and complex to be beneficial. 

 

Warm up:

 
  • I didn’t perform a proper warm up because I was too cool for that today. 

Workout Session:

  • One arm pulley row (pyramid): 4 x 12, 20lb, 27.5lb, 35lb, 42.5lb
  • Dual pulley row (Pyramid): 3 x 12, 27.5lb, 35lb, 42.5lb
  • Triceps pushdowns (pyramid): 4 x 12, 20lb, 30lb, 40lb, 50lb
  • Abdominal crunch machine: 5 x 20, 70lb
  • Triceps dip (standing): 4 x 12
  • Cable Crossover: 4 x 10, 20lb
  • lat pulldown machine: 3 x 12, 70lb
  • cable curls: 4 x 8, 25lb
  • cable upright rows: 5 x 8, 25lb

That is all folks, because I did not do a proper cool down neither. Tomorrow the gym closes at noon for Thanksgiving and reopens on Friday. Chances are, I will be at the gym tomorrow, but not on my blog tomorrow because I have cooking to do and getting ready for the dinner. I most likely will not be on my blog Friday because I have to work all day, but if I find time, I will. The weekend I will not be on the blog because I give those days to myself. If I don’t speak to you before than, have a wonderful Thanksgiving! also feel free to share workouts in the comment section.

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon
