All in the legs
I was pretty psyched about today because it’s a deadlifting day!! My greatest deadlifting moment was when I picked up the bar off the floor with 45 lbs on each side, which meant 135 lbs total. Since I weigh 115 it meant lifting more than my body weight which made me super happy. The goal for today was to complete 5 reps. Last week I did 4 but when I finished I noticed a pretty strong lower back pain. My boyfriend warned me that there shouldn’t be any back pain, and instead of doing them incorrectly he wanted to see me do them.
Let’s just say today was a whole different ball park! My warm up sets were good, but then when it came time for my heaviest set oh dear god I thought I wasn’t going to be able to do it. Best tip for deadlifting: Abs tight, chest up, and never use your back to pick up the weight. Use your legs!!
-Words of advice from the bf 😉
I only did 3 sets but my back was pain free. I was actually pretty disappointed because I wanted to finish, I hate feeling like a quitter. Hopefully next week will be better. My overhead press was em decent but form is getting sloppy. Might need to switch to something else before I hurt myself. Overall today’s workout was 5/10. Not impressed.
PWO (post workout) on the other hand was delicious down to the last bite!
Then it was time to play with the new ice cream maker. My boyfriend just got it today so we were excited to make something scrumptious.
Omg it was just like ice cream and my serving was only 134 calories!! Not too shabby I must say 😉
