Bicep blaster

I do my best to try to incorporate fitness into my blog as much as possbile, but it is pretty clear that FOOD and recipes consume the majority of posts. So, I thought I would show some love to my workout tab today and share my workout from Saturday with you which by the way I had to come up with on my own since somebody (B) ditched the gym to play golf with the guys. How dare he. 


Cable curls- 3 sets of 8 (40lbs)

Super set with reverse curls- 3 sets of 8 (30lbs)

Alternating Hammer curl 3 sets of 10 (15lbs)

Barbell Preacher curl 3 sets of 10, only 8 on the last set (40 lbs)

I also did triceps which was skullcrushers 3 sets of 10 (40 lbs), dumbbell kick backs 3 sets of 8 (10lbs), overhead tricep extention 3 sets of 8 (30lbs), and tricep push down with rope 3 sets of 8 (30lbs). The bicep workout doesn't seem like a whole lot, but I went as heavy as possible on everything and my biceps were feeling it the next day two days. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

  1. Looks great! Any chance (next time) you can include how much weight you use? It can give us an idea and maybe help push us to lift heavier. :)

  3. I just saw email and was going to say thanks for adding how much weight you use! Very rare to see, but extremely helpful! I love your food posts, but this is nice to see. As a guy at the gym put it, "I am new to working out" I've been doing cardio and classes for years but no weights.

  4. I also have a question, probably a dumb one! On Jamie Eason's live fit trainer, I'm on day 5 and it says rest, which is fine, but also day 6 and 7??? Should I be. Doing cardio these days? I love the plan, but this was confusing!

    1. If I remember correctly yes, phase one does have 3 rest days... definitely DO NOT do cardio on these days. Stay away from cardio completely in phase 1, if 3 days rest is too many for you I would add an extra day for your lagging body part and just repeat the workout from earlier in the week. Make sense?

  6. Love the food blogging but nice addition to add in your training for the day. Funnily enough I did this same workout this morning, was just making it up as I went. My arms were bursting afterwards. I agree with the post above about putting in the weights you use, I know we are all individuals but I always wonder what other girls lift. I worry sometimes I am not lifting heavy enough.
