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! 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
