No Wednesday Workout — But Thursday Gains

Heavy load leg day

Today was good workout, it was a heavy day workout with all leg work. It was tough but I did very well, no videos or pictures, but a great overall workout. I prepared the plan with what I think would be helpful to me and get me started with lifting heavier weights. Keep in mind next week, I will be doing conventional deadlifts with squats and this week was sumo deadlifts. 

Warm Up:

  • Leg curls: 4 x 25, 20 lbs
  • resisted butt lifts: 4 x 25, 20 lbs
  • kettlebell bench stiff – legged goodmornings: 4 x 25, 12 lbs


Sumo deadlift: 

  • 5 x 2-4 (80%-90% of 1RM) 5 x 180 lbs, 5 x 190 lbs, 5 x 200 lbs
  • 2 x 1 (95%+) 1 x 210 lbs, 1 x 225 lbs

Barbell back squat (low bar, wide stance):

  •  5 x 2-4 (80%-90% of 1RM) 5 x 160 lbs, 5 x 170 lbs, 5 x 180 lbs
  • 2 x 1 (95%+) 1 x 190 lbs, 1 x 200 lbs, 1 x 205 lbs


  • Wide stance barbell stiff legged deadlift: 5 x 10-15, 95 lbs
  • resistance band fire hydrants: 5 x 10-15, red band
  • weighted walking lunges: 5 x 10-15, 50 lbs

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
