How A Girl Trains: Part II

Right now my training program consists of the big lifts – squat, deadlift, press (bench is a work in progress – no video to show just yet but coming soon..). My assistance work focuses primarily on Romanian deadlifts, glute bridges and hip thrusts, body rows, push ups, chin ups (for all upper body lifts), lunges and split squats (not shown in the video).

Every day I am getting stronger and feeling better. I won’t lie…there are days when I am sore and don’t feel like picking up heavy things. But I do it anyway. And I always feel better afterward. 😉

Here is a quick video compilation of my training over the last few weeks. I try to throw in a couple of conditioning sessions a week following my training but sometimes, after you have just deadlifted 185 pounds for 11 times, you really don’t need any extra conditioning. We just call that cardio deadlifting. Works for me. 🙂

    1. Thanks Shannon!! I can’t wait to get you back into class!!! I will have a schedule out soon for the fall. Looking forward to seeing you rock the weights again!

  1. From a strictly professional perspective… THAT IS SO HOT!!! Haha! …It is rare to witness, but when Beauty, Intelligence, AND Strength manage to manifest themselves in equal proportions in one being of the “fairer sex;” ALL of the Fitness gods look down, & smile in approval. Your Dedication is inspiring. Cheers!

    1. Thank you Robert! I am glad you enjoyed the post and the video. 🙂 As a dancer who turned to heavy lifting to fix her back, I thank you, thank you, thank you for your comments. Deadlifting will remain a part of my life forever. And at 36, I feel better than ever. Thanks again for commenting!
