Body Beast: Build Legs=
This morning started too soon with little sleep last night. I knew I needed some energy to hit legs hard today (legs are one of my weak areas). I decided to dig into my awesome stash of samples that were sent to me recently. I usually use Amino Energy which I have been told is at the lower end of the energy spectrum.
What a ride! Wow, I should have only had 1/2 of a serving… hehe. I didn’t feel it right away so I decided to drink the entire packet. About 15 minutes later I was bouncing off the walls. It was a little too much, though, because I started feeling nauseous and jittery. I guess I haven’t built up that tolerance yet ;).
Build Legs was a great workout today. I switched from using dumbbells to using my bar bell for the exercises. I was able to focus on form better with the bar bell and up my all my weight from last week. The Giant Set took everything out of me. I was d.o.n.e. My muscles were shaking while I was standing still and I felt like I couldn’t go on. But something inside of me kept pushing me and I finished strong. For some reason when I know I only have 8 reps, I am able to go for it no matter how heavy the weight!!
I burned quite a bit of calories today. After adding in an extra hamstring exercise and some booty exercises, my whole lower half burned and I couldn’t get off the floor for a good 15 minutes. That, my friends, is a sign of a good workout!!
One day closer – whatever it takes!
Now off to do some Easter activities with the kids!! ❤
