Les Mills Pump Extreme
On January 7th I asked Albert to take a pictures of me doing squats. I just needed one pic on my phone, but he got out the big camera and took a bunch of pictures. Unfortunately he stopped before the end so I don't have pictures of the lunges, (of which I am very proud because I've moved up to 15 lbs on each side - when I started I could only do 5 lbs), shoulders, or abs. Oh well! Here's almost the whole workout :)
Squats! 17.5 on each side. I could probably move up to 20, but I have a hard time lifting that much over my head. My legs are a lot stronger than my arms.
Chest! I've been wanting that sweet crease on my chest that strong people have and it's coming along. I have been lifting 10 lbs on each side for awhile but I can still barely get through the track with that much so I'm not going up anytime soon.
Back! I lift 12.5 lbs on each side. I like the clean and press, but not as much since I added that extra 2.5 lbs :) It's definitely a challenge. Especially those wide rows!
Triceps are tough, but these raises aren't so bad. That's a 10 lb weight.
Triceps part II. This is a 5 lb weight.
I added an extra 2.5 lbs on to the bicep track and I barely made it through. I was making some fun faces there at the end. I have noticed some changes in my arms thanks to Pump and I am pretty happy with the changes in my body. I love having more muscle! I want to keep lifting weights 2-3 times a week.
