Hello, friends! <3
Before I spill about my new training program would you take a look at this!?
That was part of my breakfast this morning. I made a delicious omelette with fresh dill from my garden, parmesan cheese, and grilled salmon which was leftover from last night.
Just looking at that makes me drool. So delicious.
Now that we’ve covered how I’ve been eating clean, let’s talk about how I’ve been sweating dirty
My second round of training with Tara (weeks 7 – 12) were amazing! I have told Tara over and over how much I enjoyed my second program of training. Even though I loved my first program that she designed for me, I liked the second much better. I think this was because I had two legs days instead of one. Since I am not incorporating cardio in my training routine, I also really enjoyed and looked forward to my one plyometric workout each week. I’m not going to lie, it did scare me each week, but I also enjoyed it
My second program was tough, but I made a lot of visible and strength gains. I can really notice that my arms increased in size and my back is definitely more muscular.
As for strength gains, I can squat and deadlift heavier now than ever before, but the most exciting news!? I increased the weight for my chest press! I never particularly enjoyed training my chest before starting with Tara in April, but now I love chest days and today I made a new PR that had me jumping around the gym like a little girl
I received my new program, program number three, yesterday morning and I was so excited to get to the gym and give it a go! I trained my legs and loved the new workout. I think it was the toughest leg day Tara has given me yet! These are the exercises I did during yesterday’s workout:
Leg extensions (warm up)
It took me approximately 40 minutes to complete, but I left the gym walking like a baby lamb – pretty wobbly, my friends!
I enjoy working out on weekends, so I hit the gym again today. Today was chest day, so I was really excited! Today’s workout was by far my favourite chest workout that Tara has written me so far! I may be biased because I did set a new PR, but it is a really good workout. When I train chest I also train my triceps and abs. These are the exercises I did today:
Medicine ball push ups
Incline chest press
Flat bench chest press (this is where I set a new PR!)
Unassisted parallel dips
Overhead rope extensions
Swiss ball pikes
It was my first time ever doing medicine ball push ups, but I really enjoyed starting my workout with them!
Even though I only completed two training days of my five day split, I know I am going to love my third program! Thank you, Tara! <3
So what’s up for the rest of the week?
I have three training days and two rest days ahead of me. The three training days will be as follows:
Back & biceps
Shoulders & abs
I usually take a rest day after training my chest because I am usually quite sore, but we’ll see what tomorrow brings!
Keep eating clean and sweating dirty my friends!
Oh, and don’t forget to enjoy yourself along the way
I love you all so so much! Have a great Sunday! <3
Do you like to workout on the weekend or is that when you take your rest days?
If you did workout today, what was your workout?
Do you enjoy training your chest?
