Lifting, Powerlifting


On Sundays we Deadlift.

Started Sunday feeling slightly exhausted, going off of 3 hours of sleep.  I woke up in time to eat breakfast, slept for an hour, woke back up to meet my friends for breakfast at 9, another staple in my weekend routine.  Deadlifting starts at 10 o clock sharp.  After a thorough foam roll and stretching session I did single leg deadlifts with a kettlebell before my pin pulls.  And, as previously promised, here is a video!

 4 x 2 again this week.  It was taxing on my back after my workout the previous morning but this program has helped me so much with my form for all powerlifts and staying tight.

Reverse hyperextensions 4×10

4 x 10 Single leg hamstring curls with monster mini (need to work on keeping movements slow and constant tension on the muscle.)

6 x 15 good mornings

Walking lunges with 25lb kettlebell

I had to go back to the gym for round 2 to get my 25 minutes of cardio in, which I completed on incline 15 at speed 3.0, burning 300 calories.  Steak and potatoes for dinner!  It was the perfect ending to an awesome weekend and a great start to my first day as a full time personal trainer.
