Gym Session :: 10/24/2010

Gooood Morning Everyone! So today Karen, My brother Derick and Myself woke up an hour later than we were supposed to... we still met up at the gym to do Legs & Biceps. I had to get home because Hubby had to go to the gym to meet up a friend at 9 and barely just finished and got home just in time.

But here are the exercises that i did today for Legs & Biceps (I did the same exercises as last week except one, but i'll post them all anyway)

- Bulgarian Lunges (video Here
 that was on my old channel, but did those 3 sets of 8 repetitions.. really really burns those thighs! LOL
- Squats (at the Squat rack) I used the olympic barbell which is i think 45lbs alone. I did a warm up set of just the barbell 8 repetitions. On my 2nd set, i added 10lbs on each side of the barbell and did 2 more sets of 8 repetitions. this exercise is amazing for your quads! 
- Standing calf-raises - no weights - 3 sets of 8 repetitions (did these inbetween sets while i was doing the bulgarian lunges)

- Hammer Curls - 15lb dumbbell each hand - 3 sets of 8 repetitions
- Alternating Dumbbell Curls - 12lbs each hand - 3 sets of 8 repetitions

that pretty much wrapped it up! people sometimes ask me why i lift weights aren't i scared i'll get "buff" i posted this in the beginning when i started this blog about this. 

the only way i will ever get "buff" is if i eat more calories than i exercise - if you want to get big like a powerlifter - you have to eat like one! plus i am NOT a man, i do not take steroids/supplements to make me buff, and because i'm a woman - i do not even have enough testosterone to make me become naturally buff as easily as it is for men. 

My personal goal is not to become a skinny toothpick - my personal opinion i do not think that is sexy and that's not what i'm aiming for. Like i have mentioned before, my goal is to lose weight/body fat and to become lean. i do also want to become a bit stronger. if you are looking to lose weight - lifting weights is an awesome way to go! don't be afraid of the weights! keep in mind, if you are trying to lose weight, it's also about healthier eating choices! 

i honestly love Jennifer Nicole Lee's body and would LOVE to have my body look like that - i honestly think it'll take a lot of hard work, passion and persistence!  

I think she has an amazing body and this is what my personal goal is for my body! what my goals are, may not necessarily fit yours - so find your goal and get to it!  

stay healthy people!
