I’m not sure how many women are into weightlifting, but let me tell you it is addictive! Today I worked out with my husband and that’s always extremely fun! He can push me to try harder things and go a bit heavier on the weights when I normally wouldn’t and I’d be more cautious on my own. Today our first exercise was squats. The last time I worked my legs and did squats the most I squatted was 90 pounds. Today I started at 95 pounds for 5 reps. Then he encouraged me to add more weight so I ended up squatting the most ever, 105 pounds, which I did 3 more sets of 5 reps!
So incase any of you were wondering what I’ve been doing, I am going to post my workouts. The leg workout titled ‘Booty Lift’ is a workout I made up for a bigger challenge. I went to bodybuilding.com and found a lot of great information. The first workout is what my husband wrote out and I modified it since I can’t use weights on the weekends. I’ve been doing 25 jumping jacks between each set since I’m not running. As soon as the weather permits I want to get outside and do some HIIT cardio.
