I don’t know what it is lately but I’m motivated. Motivated in the gym and out but I’ve really been working hard in every aspect of my life. I feel really good physically and as I’m shedding my incessant vacation weight, I’m focusing on my strength and using the extra LBs to my advantage.
It could partly be due to the fact that I’ve had some kick ass workouts fueled by this baby
But can you blame me at 5am? I need a little umph sometimes and this definitely does it.
I’ve also really been focusing on changing up my routine. As I’m studying to renew a cert, I’ve found a new love for fitness and MY ability to sculpt and create the body I want. I’m continuously fascinated by the science that goes be behind it all.
This mornings workout looked like this –
30 minute on stairs followed by 10 minute intervals on the bike. I was sprinting after the stairs for a while but I’m really trying to give the hip flexor and knee a break. The bike is actually a really great workout when you put the energy into it.
I followed that with a Chest/Shoulder workout
4×12 incline dumbbell press - abs in between each set
4.x12 one arm cable flys
3×10 dumbell shoulder press – Dumbbell squats in between sets
3×10 arnold press
I don’t actually know the name of the next exercise I did for shoulders. I take 2 dumbells and starts with my palms facing ou, in front of my boady and move them, completely straight, all the way over my head. I’m sure this has a name – I just don’t know it! Feel free to fill me in.
I did a dropset with these as I started with heavy weight but my shoulders were on fire so I continued with lighter. Love this exercise!
3×10 unassisted cable shoulder press
3×10 front cable raises
Now it’s off to work I go. Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!
