My Gym workout – Dec. 8th

Weights, Workout, Exercise, Fitness

Hello fitfam, 

Today was a leg day and it was a leg day focusing on muscular endurance training, so I did low weight and high reps in all the exercises and did day two of my squat challenge. 


Warm up:

  • Treadmill: 12 minutes, no incline, 3.6 speed

Workout Session:

  • Leg extension: 4 x 20, 50lb
  • seated calf raise: 4 x 20, 40lb
  • Hip thrusters: 4 x 15, 55lb
  • Cable glute kickbacks: 4 x 20 per leg, 5lb
  • Dumbbell side lunge: 4 x 20, 30lb
  • Dumbbell swings: 4 x 20, 15lb
  • air squats: 55 reps

Overall today’s workout went really well. I really felt those leg extensions, even at a lower weight – the burn came quick. I did the hip thrusters using the leg extension machine. The dumbbell side lunges are no joke a good exercises, would recommend them. The gym I go to does not have kettlebells, so I had to use dumbbells instead and it worked out fine. This was day 2 of the air squats and 55 was starting to hurt at 40 reps.

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.
