A Week of Workouts

January 6, 2013 | Fitness, Training, Workouts | 30 Comments

Hey, friends!

Thanks for all of the excitement, support, and love on Friday! I sure do love writing those High Five Friday posts :)
If you’d like to be featured in this week’s High Five Friday please read here for more information on how to participate or, if you already know the drill, email me at adashofmeg@gmail.com! :) The more participants the better!

So, I’ve been thinking…

Now that I have a little bit lot more time on my hands since I am only taking one course this term, I want to begin devoting more time to A Dash of Meg.

I have a ton of post topics that I am passionate about and more than enough recipes to share! So, get ready for some great posts in the near future :)

Since Sundays are the last day before a new week, I thought Sundays could be the day I recap my week of workouts (and maybe share a workout or two that I’ve done during the week!)

This week, my training looked like this:

Monday: Chest and triceps

Tuesday: Rest

Wednesday: Back

Thursday: Rest

Friday: Shoulders, biceps, and core

Saturday: Legs

Sunday: Rest

Yesterday I had a great workout with my personal trainer and I am definitely feeling it today. I increased the weight I use for hack squats, which made me incredibly happy! My personal trainer and I were both surprised, though – I was able to do the same amount of reps with 10 extra lbs.!

I guess you can say I released the beast during yesterday’s workout ;)

This is what we did:

01/05: Legs

Hack squats 3 sets of 12

Reverse hack squats 3 sets of 10

Single leg leg extensions 3 sets of 10

Lying leg curl 3 sets of 10

Standing single legged leg curl 3 sets of 12

Standing calf raise 3 sets of 10

Seated calf raise 3 sets of 10

Tomorrow I’ll be back at the gym for chest and biceps!

I hope you’re all having a great Sunday and maybe test out this workout for yourself! :) As always – let me know!

Love always,

Meg xo

Will you enjoy a recap of my weekly workouts?

    Hey, Meg!

    I was just curious, do you ever do any cardio? And if not, does this mean you don’t eat simple carbs like fruit?

    Thanks for all your posts. :)

    Too funny, I started sharing my workouts this week too! I love reading about what training others do, especially when it’s so different than my own. It’s so interesting and I think I’ll pick up new exercises too. :)

    Find the new topic ‘week of workouts’ amazing. Don’t you miss cardio? I’m not sure but I think if I cut cardio, I would gain some. But I’m glad it works for you!
    Do you eat carbs other than fruits and vegetables?
    Thanks for sharing! Have a great week!

      I have never been a cardio girl. I think it’s so boring, so no :) I don’t miss it :) My goal is to build and gain and cardio won’t do that for me, so I just need to do what I’ve got to do :)

      I eat a ton of carbs. I have carbs for 6 meals out of 7 during my day! Your body needs carbs to thrive and function its best :) It’s the preferred energy!!
