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! 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.
