…I said that I was a health and FITNESS blogger….
Ahem. So I apologize for my lack of fitness related posts for, oh what, the past decade. They just take a while to type up because I like to make them pretty which then leads to my workouts never being posted. Damn OCD perfectionism. I will try to do better…promise.
So since I had a few minutes to spare this morning while my apartment was being taken over for a shoot for Andre, I quickly typed up my shoulder workout for ya. Of course, a workout post is nothing without some pre-workout oatmeal porn…
A girl needs her fuel amirite?
So, yeah, that workout…
A few notes:
- I always start my workouts with a core super set to warm it up. Today’s core was a oblique focused so I started with a super set of 30 bicycles on the ground with weighted (35lbs) oblique sit-ups on the decline bench for 3 total rounds.
- Monday workouts tend to get some lower body randomly thrown into the mix, hence why there are goblet squats and a new-to-me glute exercise (using the assisted dip machine) called the glute pressdown that I have been seein around. Build those buns of steel! Check it out here!
***When doing this exercise you want to ensure that you are doing full range of motion to really target those glutes. Bring the leg back up so that the knee is higher than parallel before pushing down once again. ***
After my post-workout protein muffin, a few hours later, this graced my plate for lunch.
I love me a good stuffed squash! This one had a few of my pesto chicken meatballs broken up into the mix along with purple kale, squash flesh, mushies, zucchini, onions, garlic, chili and worchestershire sauce. More kale on the side. Delish!
Still really having fun with shoulder day. This is prolly because I found new exercises to put into the rotation.
Happy Monday Friends!
Favourite shoulder exercise?
Do you eat before you lift weights? My pre-workout is one of my biggest (if not the biggest) meal of the day. Tons of carbs, good amount of protein and a decent amount of fat to keep me going through my long and heavy lifting sessions. It’s also probably my favourite meal of the day. Mmmm proats!
