Nov.14th Workout: 8 Week Program|Week Two|Day Two

Another day, another workout. I upped each one by 2 reps compared to last weeks. You will notice 2-3 new exercises I added because I wanted to add some supersets, and you will notice that I did not do any cardio today due to time but tomorrow, cardio will be implemented. 

 

Legs, biceps, abs, triceps 

Workout:

Superset:

 
  • Barbell back squat: 3 x 10, 135 lb 
  • EZ-bar goodmornings: 3 x 10, 20 lb 

Superset:

  • Barbell Romanian deadlift: 3 x 10, 185 lb
  • DB lunge: 3 x 10, 40 lb

Superset:

  • Barbell standing calf raise: 3 x 10, 115 lb
  • Smith machine vertical leg press: 3 x 10, 255 lb

Superset:

  • Barbell curl: 3 x 10, 50 lb
  • Lying triceps extension: 3 x 10, 30 lb

Superset:

  • Barbell shrugs: 3 x 6, 185 lb
  • hanging leg raises: 3 x 20

Overall today’s back squat felt heavier having to do 10 reps instead of 8 and even my deadlifts were feeling quite heavier compared to last week, hopefully that changes but thankfully I still proved to do 10 reps so that is always a positive. The hanging leg raises are coming easier and less painful, lol. The smith machine vertical leg press I love doing just because it really works those quads and I can do heavier than 255 but I don’t need to go real heavy in order to get what I need from it – highly recommend this exercise if you someone who wants to target the quads.

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.
