My Gym Workout – Happy 1st of December!

Glasses, Champagne, Toast, Celebration

Hello FitFam, 

Happy 1st of Decemeber to all of you! 

December will probably be a busy month for most of us since the holidays are always crazy and busy and other of us may have to endure some horrible winter weather. Yuck! Definitely not looking forward to that. Anyhow, today John could not make it this morning for his workout, so he said he would go after work today, hopefully he does. He didn’t confirm whether or not he attended yesterday, but for my sake, I hope he did because I don’t send workouts for fun, lol. He did say he would be showing up tomorrow morning, so we shall see. Tomorrow will be a very busy day for me, as always. So, I may or may not be available to post my workout and other content. As you all are aware, I take weekends off away from the blog, but I may still come by and do some things since I have to write another article. Today’s workout was simple, heavy and actually was a personal best for me.

 

My workout:

Warm up:

 
  • Treadmill: 12 minutes, 3.6 speed, no incline

Workout Session:

Pyramid (leg press):

  • 1 x 12, no added weight
  • 1 x 12, 50lb
  • 1 x 12, 90lb
  • 1 x 12, 140lb
  • 1 x 12, 180lb
  • 1 x 10, 230lb
  • 1 x 8, 270lb
  • 1 x 4, 360lb
  • 1 x 4, 360lb

Between sets of leg press, I was doing Seated Russian Twist:

  • 9 x 30 with a 25lb weight plate. I have thought about using a 45lb weight plate.. to see if I can manage it, that will be another goal. 

My last exercise of the day today:

  • Dumbbell squat to shoulder press: 4 x 10, 40lb

I PR’d in my leg press, my new all time high is 360lb, next goal is 400lb. I thought I would only 1RM it because it was heavy, but I managed to get 4 good reps, almost 5. My dumbbell squat to shoulder press was a new PR’d as well, I increased my weight by 20lb, so that was exciting, hopefully my next goal will be to hit 60lb 🙂 Overall good workout.

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.
