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! 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.
