Sweat It Out Saturday: Back & Bicep Workout
Hey guys! Happy Saturday!
I am so happy that all of you liked my sushi vlog I totally didn’t think my pajama pants would show when I tilted the camera down, it was a surprise to me(!), but I am glad some of you liked my outfit But, I am pretty sure I am not the only one here that pretty much lives in her pajama’s right? When I get home from classes at the end of the day the first thing I do is change! I am never in “regular” clothes. If I am at home, you will always find me either wearing pajama pants or shorts of some type!
Since Stephanie brought back her Sweat It Out Saturday (which I am a huge fan of), I thought I would jump on board. And this time, she made the day even bigger, so if you want to join in on Sweat It Out Saturday’s with Stephanie, other bloggers, and myself, just go to Stephanie’s blog, The New Healthy, and link up your blog post about anything sweat related! As Stephanie says, “anything goes!”
I was a bundle of energy when I woke up today! I usually go to the gym for 8:00(ish), but today I was out of the door by 7:15 and ready to rock my workout!
However, before I left my house, I obviously fuelled up with a wonderful breakfast!
I also had my shake already made for myself for after my sweat sesh!
To my surprise, the gym was locked!? Apparently the women’s side of the gym opens at 8:00 on weekends, but the rest of the gym opens earlier! Who knew!? Not I! Seeing as how I didn’t know the rest of the gym was open, I figured I would go home instead of waiting 45 minutes until the gym opened (going home isn’t a big deal because the gym is literally 2 blocks away from my home, so I didn’t mind!) Once 8:00 rolled around I headed back to the gym and rocked this back and biceps workout from the LiveFit Trainer:
Hammer strength lat pull 3 x 10 (I increased my weights for this exercise this week! Woo!)
Wide grip lat pulldown 3 x 10 (I increased my weights on this as well!)
Seated narrow grip cable row 3 x 10 (Totally not lying when I say that I increased my weights for this too `cause I totally did! I was pumped!)
Bent over barbell row 3 x 10
Back extensions 3 x 10
Barbell curl 3 x 10
Dumbbell curl 3 x 10 (increased)
Cable hammer curl 3 x 10
I added in some ab work during rests and did some high knees as well! I love adding plyos and ab exercises into my routines to spice them up a bit! (And seeing as how this is my second time doing Phase 1 of LiveFit I think it`s OK to do so )
My shake tasted so amazing after that workout. I really pushed myself.
I came home straight after my workout and pulled out the school books! I was productive for the entire morning and got tons crossed off of my “weekend to do” list Feels so good to get so much done before noon doesn’t it!?
For lunch I baked myself basa fillets I pulled frozen fillets out of the freezer at 11:30, thawed them, and baked them for approximately 12 minutes at 425 degrees F, and was eating by 12:00 noon!
Now try telling me you don’t have time to make a healthy meal, right? Cooking healthy doesn’t have to take hours or be complicated! Keep it simple
Even though this was a very simple meal, it did not lack flavour what so ever!
I hope everyone’s Saturday is going as lovely as mine! Let me know if you get your sweat on and make sure you link it up to Stephanie’s blog, too!
Do you put spinach in your smoothies? It took me forever to do so, but I wish it hadn’t because it is amazing! Seriously, Tara, just try it already
I haven’t been posting my workouts lately, but would you like to continue seeing them on Sweat It Out Saturdays?
Have you worked out today? What was your exercise of choice?
Have a wonderful Saturday friends! I am off to go do more homework (it’s never ending!!!!!)
