Gym Session :: 08/08/2012

Hi Everyone! AHH! It's been soo super hot this past week.. today and tomorrow are supposed to be the hottest days of the week being around 109-110ish =(

But anyway - Decided to hit the gym with hubby as soon as he got off work.. I was worried about the gym being super packed - but luckily although it was packed, I was able to do what I needed to do..

It was a leg day for me... and decided that I wanted to try to squat my PR (personal record) of 155lbs.. I had done this in June (video HERE) But at that point I was a little heavier than I am now.. And yes I am quite aware that when you drop weight (especially the amount I did) I was sacrificing some muscle and strength.. but that's why i'm trying to work back up to it.. and thankfully - I was able to! :) 


This is ONE of my favorite leg/glute exercises.. I'm going to be doing a series on my favorite workouts (videos) because a lot of you (on blog, twitter and instagram) have asked and i'm so excited to share my favorite exercises with you all! so stay tuned for that!

But okay - enough blabbering - my workout for the day!

145lbs x 1
155lbs x 1 - I could've easily done more - but decided not to kill myself tonight since I still had more exercises to do lol.. but i'm so glad i hit my PR again while on a cut! my next goal is to squat 160lbs, then 165lbs, ultimately working up to 185lbs .. small goals.. :)
