Back, Bi's, and Breakfast

Have I mentioned I'm trying to build muscle? It's been quite the process but after yesterday's back workout I think I'm finally making progress, at least with strength. 


I started the morning out with a little creation made by chef B. Leftover rosemary red potatoes with sausage and eggs. It was great to switch it up a little and throw in those red potatoes instead of sweet potato. They also gave me lots of energy when I went to lift… I hit 2 PR's yesterday! 90 lbs on both pull downs and seated rows, 6-8 reps on each. Woo hoo! I think the true test of muscle growth will be once I lean up a bit and take my next round of photos with James Patrick. Comparing myself to the year before is so fun and even more rewarding. 


I have a few more months until my goal sneaks up on me, but until then I'm going to keep lifting my butt off! 

Here's what the workout looked like: 

6 to 8 reps of each
Bent over row
Pull downs 
Seated row
T-bar row 
Standing barbell curls 
Preacher curls
Cable curls 
Abs

  3. Your upper body already looks superb!! I'd just focus on the lower body now, to create as much symmetry and balance as possible.

  5. Hi Britanny! I have been following your blog for about 2 years now (while I was pregnant) and now I'm starting to live and understand what healthy and fit living can do for me. I have a question and was hoping to get your advice. I did a new workout on Saturday (booty/hamstring lifting), and I'm really sore today (my hamstrings mostly). Should I resume with my leg work-out on Monday at my normal pace, or kick it down a notch? I am stretching in the meantime.
