Abs are starting to show up! Woo! I have to admit It’s been very stressful with school so I have been eating out more than I want. Of course it’s healthy food but nothing beats home made food. So my progress slowed down, at least I feel that way. What you eat is really important. If you find yourself not getting results faster it’s probably because you aren’t strict with what you eat. I learned that the hard way. So make sure you are eating 5 to 6 meals a day. Make sure you are drinking enough water and not starving your body. Your body is a temple so treat it as so. Don’t put crap into it. Nurture it, take care of it.
With that being said today I did legs, abs and HIIT on the stairmaster. I will post up the routine later because I have a quiz soon! Here is a progress pic.
No filter 😉
45 minutes on the treadmill incline 21 and 3mph
1. Tricep Kickbacks 3 x 12
2. Triceps Cable Press Down 3 x 12
3. Tricep Dips 4 x 10
4. Lying Barbell Tricep Extensions 3 x 12 5. Push-ups 3 x 15 🙂
6. Arnold Press 3 x 12
This was today’s workout. I love deadlifts!! The cable deadlifts were my favorite.
I felt it a lot more on my hamstrings and lower back.
I did four 1 minute planks which were killer, these really help with your core. Start off with 30 seconds and work yourself up.
Do the hanging leg raises for your lower abs. Do it! They are very effective.
That’s all for today tomorrow I am doing arms.
I learned this from p90x.
Grab some weights and start with your toes pointed straight.
1. Do 3 sets of 15 calf raises.
2. Point your toes out 3 x 15
3. Lastly point your toes in do 3 x 15.
If you go and see my previous post I set up my leg day routine by going online and researching. If you do my leg routine you’re sure to break a sweat. Try it out, it took me about and 1 hr and a half. If you’re in a rush you can cut my routine in half. I would say take out the knee step ups, the smith machine leg work out and the single leg deadlifts. Other than that prepare to feel the burn!!
