Delt Destruction Workout

Delt Destruction Workout

Keeping up with my giant set workouts, today’s is all about building them pumpkin shoulders. As always, I ensure I hit all sides of the delts – front, middle and rear.

No, from Friday night, through to Sunday morning, coach to the pros, Mike Davies kicked me and 30 other girls’ butts by squeezing (what felt like) a month … Continue reading

My workouts … Continue reading

Off Season Update

I'm not a big New Year resolution-er, which is why I didn't post about resolutions and how to stick to them, blah blah blah. I used to make resolutions to drink more water, but then realized how stupid that actually is, and stopped. Now, I just drink water all year round. Duh! If you are … Continue reading

4 Day Training Split – Day 3

4 Day Training Split – Day 3

Ok, Day 3. By now you should feel pretty “worked” if you’ve been following along. I haven’t heard any groans, which means you’re either not training hard enough – or at all! Today is similar to Day 1, another circuit and focus on core work. However, today’s circuit is more full body than predominantly upper … Continue reading
