Feb. 1st workout

Athlete, Muscles, Shoes, Rest

Happy Wednesday Bloggers! 🙂

I had to work last night until this morning, so I didn’t sent your challenge emails until I arrived at the gym around 9 something my time, I will try to be consistent with the time in the morning, so you know when to check your emails for it. I hope everyone’s first day of the challenge turns out for the best, I realize the first day delivered a lot of squats but don’t give up 🙂 


As for me, I was trying to avoid squats for my leg day workout today. I was coming up with multiple leg day exercises in order to avoid squats and I end up having to do squats anyways. LOL. — so much for trying to avoid them. Anyways, I gave mys squat exercise some variety and it was fun but challenging. Did anyone else have a leg day today? – share some of your workouts with me! send me a video or link. 


Workout Session: 

  • Smith machine deadlift: 3 x 8. 105 lb, 155 lb, 175 lb, i don’t like doing deadlifts on the smith machine, but this is all my gym offers. 
  • Smith machine hip thrusters: 3 x 8. 65 lb, 2 x 75 lb
  • Leg press calf press: 3 x 8. 110 lb, 130 lb, 150 lb
  • Pistol squats: 3 x 8 each leg


  • Glute kickbacks: 3 x 8 each leg
  • fire hydrants: 3 x 8 each leg
  • Mountain climbers: 3 x 10 
  • DB swings: 3 x 10. 35 lb
  • Side lunges: 3 x 8 each leg
  • split lunge jumps: 3 x 8 each leg

I like doing pistol squats, I used to not know how to, until recently I got back into practicing and now I am doing them better than before, I actually made it through them faster than I had anticipated. My legs were very sore from yesterday still, so my workout was enhanced. lol. I left the gym in the same pain I came in with, yippee for me! Hopefully tomorrow’s upper body day isn’t as sore. 


Good luck challengers for tomorrow’s next squat challenge day, if some of you would still like to participate in this challenge, please send me an email at: Shay.moss19@gmail.com

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
