Today I did a review on a pre-workout supplement by the name of “Razor blast powder” (I had never heard of it) but got this supplement free from the Arnold Classic. 

I will continue to do reviews next week on other supplements/products so be on the lookout!

My 2 Minute Burpee Challenge – YouTube Video

https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=I8-yI5Yxzck

I was challenged the other day to do burpees for 2 minutes and record it and so today I did do it to the best of my ability and to be honest it wasn’t easy. I ended up doing 3 rounds (off camera) because today was my circuit training day.. but yeah sore and fatigued! 

If you are interested in seeing what my workout entailed today, follow me on Instagram, I post regularly with my workouts and I try to upload them on my blog as much as possible as well!

ACL Tear (Injury)

When it comes to injuries… I am sure most if not all of you have heard of an ACL tear. If you are not completely sure of what an ACL tear is, then you have come to right place because I plan on explaining it. 

 

First comes First.. What is an ACL tear? 

 
  • A torn anterior cruciate ligament in the knee. 

How does one tear their ACL?

  • Most prominent in sporting activities
  • It can occur when your foot is planted on the ground and force strikes it while your leg is straight or slightly bent
  • It can occur when changing direction rapidly
  • or when landing from a jump

Oh yeah, you remember now.. athletes who have torn their ACL end up gone for the majority of the season, right?

  • Yes, this is quite correct. Considering it will usually end in surgery and takes a while for recovery.

Common Sports in which we see ACL Tears?

  • Basketball, football, soccer & tennis 

Common signs that you might have an ACL Tear? 

  • Swelling, possible popping sound, unable to bend knee, weak leg muscles 
  • Although everyone is different will sometimes show different signs (more or less)

What is recovery time during an ACL tear?

  • They say typically 6-9 months .. but again this could be estimated up or down

For more information about a torn ACL, please check this website out:  http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=a00549

12 Week Cut Program (workout)|Week 5

HAPPY MONDAY FITFAM!!!

 

I have a video for you to watch giving you the synopsis of my week 4 of the 12 week cut program I am doing, so be on the lookout for that. It has been awhile since I have posted my workout, so wanted to make sure I stay on top of that and record my today’s workout and show you some improvements. I have been challenged on YouTube to do burpees for 2 minutes, and record it, and so I may possibly be doing that Wednesday if I don’t purposely forget about it. LOL Today was an upper body day and i really got a good pump! Tomorrow and Wednesday I have some reviews to do on products I have taken (supplements) so be on the look out for that as well if you subscribe to my YouTube channel! 

 

I also wanted to mention: GOOD JOB TO ALL THE COMPETITORS IN MY PUSH UP CHALLENGE! YOU HAVE ALL DONE REALLY WELL AND I AM SO PROUD OF HOW FAR YOU GUYS HAVE COME IN THIS CHALLENGE, KEEP KILLING IT! — GIVE THEM A ROUND OF APPLAUSE! 

 

Workout Session:

 
  • Incline bench press: 4 x 8-10 (50Lb) 
  • One Arm DB Row: 4 x 10-12 (30Lb)
  • Seated barbell press: 4 x 8-10 (40Lb) with superset standing military press 4 x 8-10 (50Lb)
  • Pull ups: 4 x 10 (no assistance)
  • skullcrushers: 4 x 10-12 (20Lb)
  • DB Curl: 4 x 10-12 (40Lb)
  • Cardio: 15 minutes, treadmill, 4.8 speed, no incline

I increased my one arm dumbbell row by 5Lb, improved in my pull-ups, cardio has been fine at this speed, but may improve the speed during week 6. I am may be ready to increase my my skullcrusher weight and dumbbell curl weight as well. Overall, I am seeing good mass gains and definition in my arms and legs. Tomorrow will be a leg day workout 🙂 Tune in!
