Great Friday Workout!

Friday, January 11, 2013 • Melbourne, VIC

This morning I had a fantastic workout. It felt so good to lift weight, strengthen and move my body in the manner it was designed, and chat with a new friend.

When I go to the gym I like to do a total body workout. I do this for a few reasons:

  • I don't have time in my schedule to go to the gym everyday for an hour or so
  • I like to combine exercises to make things more functional yet intense.
  • It just feels like I completed something, and some days that is just what I need.

Today, my workout was this:

  • Leg press with a calf extension lower
  • Jane Fonda leg lift combo
  • Straight leg dead lift with reverse lunge
  • Side step up on bench
  • Incline db press
  • Db single lat row
  • Flat bench db chest press
  • Arnold press
  • Db pull over
  • Tricep extension pull down
  • Body drag bicep curls

I had the privilege of working out with a new friend, Abby. She's a very inspiring and motivated gal who is training for figure/physique competition. I learned a few new exercises that I'll definitely being utilizing with future clients (and myself!)

After my workout, I munched on a granny smith apple and fresh honey roasted peanut butter, a granola bar and of course, some water.

Have a very merry Friday and enjoy your weekend!
