Shoulders boulders!

Shoulder day ! plus a little biceps

2015-04-15_17-15-57_283

Alternating  dumbell lateral raises  3×10  (4kg each side)

I love these! It’s like supersetting the front and side raises. Really challenges your muscles.

Dumbell shoulder press 3×12  (6kg each side)

Usually, I would do these sitting down. Although, I find standing gives me a better posture! Core tight  and back straight

Alternating front and rear Delt barbell presses  3×10 (10kg)

These hurt crazy! Working both front and rear Delts really encouraging those shoulder muscles as much as possible.

Bicep dumbell curls  3×12 (4 kg)

Even though I hate these, still gotta do them! 

I really should do more bicep workouts but I feel that i like how they look at the moment. My arm muscles have definitely developed earlier than the rest of the body

These are some of the workouts that I got done!

More shoulder exercises to come!

Abs, Abs, Abs every (other) day

Abs and Arms done today !

I’m going to be very honest but half of the exercises I do, I don’t even know the names for them! So what i’ll do is give the small video clips of them.

2015-03-13_19-22-16_754Ab crunches with weights.

3 sets of 20

love these! They make crunches easier! I always feel like I’m doing my crunches wrong but using the weight to make me slide up sets me to do the exercise with ease and no strain on my neck.

Ab twists

3 sets till failure

These work the side obliques. raise the legs 45 degrees up, and move the weight side to side. Make sure to face the front and don’t move the body with your arms!

Leg raises

3 sets till failure

Usually normal leg raises help the lower abdominal muscles but lifting them, increasing the range of movement increases the workout, working into the upper abdominal.

ABs then ARMs

I’ll update on arms next week as I did them vaguely today.

Stairmaster (cardio HIIT)

5 minute warm up

45 seconds level 20, 95 seconds level 2  (13 sets)

Just worked 3 exercises on abs today as I wanted a quick session.

Ab wheel?

2015-03-08_20-48-24_247“You may not see the little changes to your body  day by day but its the new things that you achieve that is rewarding.”

Worked with this little wonder today, even though it was my rest day, thought I’d do a little of abs. I used to always faceplant at the end but being able to do at least 3 sets of 10 makes me extremely happy. Plus you can really feel the pain the next day !

Anyone else experienced this wheel?

Love Ling
