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
Standing barbell curls
