Workin’ on my fitness Wednesday’s

So I’m going to start a series of different workouts I’ve done and love. I get a lot of questions about weights. I used to never want to learn anything about them. I even cried once because I couldn’t grip the squat bar right. It hurt because my body wasn’t used to that. If you want to lose weight you can’t be scared to try new things. Progressing in the gym is necessary. I love lifting weights now. It can range from the squat bar to dumbbells to plates, to the cable or machines. If you don’t love one thing you can always moderate how you use the equipment.
So before I even grab weights I always stretch. Then I grab a band and open up the muscles I’m working. I want to emphasize on mind to muscle when you’re working out. Find that connection to whatever muscle group your working out and I promise you will kill it. I always end my workout with a burn out. Find an exercise you love and stop till you’re a noodle. I always do 3 sets of 15reps. I started out with 3 sets of 8 and worked my way up. That also is how it works with weights. Start with a weight your comfortable with and perfect your form. That’s what it’s all about so you don’t hurt yourself. Then comes adding on weight. Don’t get comfortable with weights. Once it gets easy to lift add more weight. I know that contradicts with what I said about choosing a comfortable weight to start with but the gym is all about growth. Remember that the only one your competing against is yourself. Don’t compare your lifting to the person next to you lifting ten times the weight you have. So I put together a tricep/bicep workout for you guys.

Close-Grip Bench Press (light weight) 4 sets x 8-12reps

rest 60 sec

Seated Tricep Press 4 sets x 8-12 reps

rest 60 sec

Tricep Pushdown 4 sets x 8-12 reps

rest 60 sec

Seated Bicep Curl 4 sets x 8-12 reps

rest 60 sec

Barbell Preacher Curl 4 sets x 8-12 reps

Incline Dumbbell Curl 3 sets x 10-15 reps

Hammer Curl 3 sets x 10-15 reps

rest 60 sec

Seated Alternating DB Bicep Curl 4 sets x 8-12 reps

rest 60 sec

Close-Grip Barbell Bicep Curl 5 sets x failure

I added 8-12 so you can choose how many you do. I hope everyone enjoys this workout! I will have a YouTube video up next month showing this whole workout so make sure to subscribe to my channel(Esswest). I didn’t add the weight amount. I can say I started out with 25lbs then went up from there. If it’s too light, add more weight. If it’s too heavy, take some off. Remember that you are doing multiple sets. I also want to say that I am no personal trainer or fitness guru, I’m just sharing what works for me and what I like. If you try this workout let me know how you like it.

until the next workout
