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! 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
