Workout Wednesday 05-09-12

 

This week I just want to encourage you to take the next step in your weight lifting routine.

If you’ve been following along with our 42 days to fit exercise challenge you should be feeling a little less sore and a little more comfortable with your weight lifting routine (Nice work by the way :))

If your feeling comfortable friend its time to kick things up a notch.

Boomshackalocka, lets do this!

So, here’s what we are gonna do . . . just start out your first set of exercises with a slightly heavier weight. Whatever the next weight up is grab it. Do as many reps of your planned routine as you can with this heavier weight.

You might be surprised at how strong you have become and actually be able to squeeze out all your reps with this new heavier weight. You might only be able to do one or two reps to start with. It’s all good, just do as many as you can. Drop back down to your usual weight when you feel like you can not possibly (safely) push out one more rep. You know your body, listen . . . don’t make excuses or go easy on yourself . . . listen.

Keep working this way each time you do a weight lifting session and before you know it you will be crushing your entire routine with this new super heavy duty weight.

We are in this together . . . our bodies love a challenge and this is what will bring you the results you are looking for.

Be your own personal trainer.

Be your own cheerleader.

You are amazing.

You can do it.

Push yourself.

Work. It. Out.
