T- 6 days

The countdown is on for my vacation! Lately it’s all I think about. There’s just something really exciting about getting on a plane to go somewhere! Plus, I always feel very grown up when I go to the airport alone šŸ™‚

I really enjoy an airport coffee too. Starbucks of course, but there’s just something about getting one when you know you are going somewhere exciting.

Sorry I was MIA yesterday. I was EXHAUSTED on Tuesday night so I just came home and became a couch potato, even at the gym I was so tired so we had to do chest and move the legs to the next day.Ā Ā 

I’m glad we did because Coach made me go RIDICULOUSLY HEAVY! At one point I was sitting on the floor, out of breath, unable to move. I’m determined to get these tree trunks growing. Coach really pushes me and if I don’t go low enough in a squat or go slow enough when releasing the weight, he makes me do it over! I give him the “Katie eyes” meaning you better be glad I have all this weight on me right now šŸ˜‰ Otherwise I’d be throwing punches.

So let me share my workout with you guys!

  • Hamstring curls, lying,Ā x 3 sets
  • Leg Presses x 4 sets. I maxed 270 pounds for 8 reps! Knees to chin! Holy moly. That’s 55 more pounds than my last max, I couldn’t believe it.
  • Leg extensions, 5 sets
  • More hamstring curls lying, I maxed 130 lbs! Again I couldn’t believe this. We do drop sets on this. Start heavy for as many as you can, then go lighter, then go lighter again to fatigue the muscle.
  • Squats. I go lighter to prevent a back injury. 75 lbs. BUTT TO GROUND! As low as you can. 4 sets
  • Glutes: this is where I almost didn’t make it to today šŸ˜‰
  • Smith machine sit squats. Feet go further out in front of you, a good foot ahead from your hips. Feet together, squat down as low as you can and back up for 10. Go LIGHT on the weight
  • Superset the above with hip raises on a bench using a barbell at your waist. Glutes down to the floor, then back up, squeezing at the top for 10 reps.
  • Repeat this sequence 2 more times!
  • Cable kickbacks each leg for 3 sets
  • Finish with step ups on the box. Focus on one leg at a time, kick back one leg for a glute squeeze at the top of the box. 10 reps each side. I held 10 lb weights to add a little extra. šŸ™‚


Grow quads grow!

And the bum!


So that was yesterday. Do this workout, it’ll be a good one! Or at least try the smith machine sit squats. A different exercise for me and I really felt the burn. Loved it.

I’ll be back tomorrow. Speaking of back! Today is back day yippee šŸ™‚

XOXO With a Cherry On Top,

    I can really see a lot of growth in your booty and quads! When you talk about Coach it reminds me so much of when I had a coach, I was always glaring. Hated the workout but loved the results they got me!! It’s just a love/hate relationship isn’t it ;)? At least today’s your Friday!!! Have a great day šŸ™‚
