My Gym Workout- Dec. 14th

Weights, Lifting, Power, Female, Gym


Today was full of surprises with my workout, I got to try some new exercises – and even did an exercise to failure for the first time – which was not fun. Overall, I am feeling my back gains and shoulder gains from yesterday. I did day 5 of my squat challenge, which have been going well thus far, but the numbers keep rising, lol. 


Warm Up:

  • Treadmill: 12 minutes, no incline, 3.6 speed – I will try to spice things up in my warmup, because I know I should or atleast amp things up.

Workout Session – Back Day

  • Pull-up: 4 sets to failure. I did 30 reps for the first set and after that the number started decreasing and the burn increased, definitely felt this one. I used a lower resistance on the assisted pull-up machine – I used 70lb instead of 40lb. 
  • Squat deadlift: 5 x 15, 12, 10, 8, 6. I had never heard of this exercise before, today was my first time doing it, and it went well, not all that different from a regular deadlift with a few minor differences in positioning. 65lb, 85lb, 105lb, 125lb, 145lb
  • Lat pulldown: 5 x 15, 12, 10, 8, 6. 55lb, 70lb, 85lb, 100lb, 120lb
  • One-arm smith machine row: 4 x 8 per side. 35lb
  • Goodmornings: 3 x 10, 30lb
  • Cable pull-through: 4 x 15, 30lb
  • air squats: 70 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
