    The day of rest

    I love sundays. Going to church coming home and relaxing. For right now I don't have to do cardio 7 days a week. Sundays are wonderful. Just a little FYI I ahve been making a great tuna salad and sweet potatoe chips that are a treat from the plan diet foods you eat when in training. I will post them on the recipes portion of website. Also I will post more pics on mon.jan. 25th. I have been steadily losing weight and being a little more relaxed about this training season. One full week down and 5lbs off. Not too bad.

    Saturdays training was kickboxing and core only no weight training.

    Back work out

    I only have a training partner on Tuesday during the week and I'm lucky enough to training with a power lifter. Sh e really pushes me to push/pull heavier weight than usual.

    wide grip lat pull down 6 sets 2 warm up and 4 working sets

    hammer strength plate loaded machine 4 sets

    one arm dumbbell rows 4 sets

    cable face pulls 4 sets

    wide grip lat pull down machine 4 sets to stretch out lats

    cardio: Complex challenges Body weight version you can find this cardio w/o on the home page in latest articles. GREAT cardio not boring like the treadmill or elliptical. Beware pretty tough though it was a challenge & I loved it!!!!!!!!

    What benefits have you noticed from lifting heavier than normal?

    Love the feed back!!!

    Well well goody girl you are still around I have been missing you. Thanks everyone for your very sweet compliments. I have a lot of work to do still. To answer your question Offroad I think i have had some pretty significant gaines in my shoulders and back. When I first starting to compete all I heard was you need to be wider because you have a blocky waist so I started lifting heavy. This starts the 3rd season for me and I do have some width and body comp. has changed. I will be posting some more pics tomorrow. Still just 5lbs down but already seeing some changes. Hope you guys have a great week. A whole 2 weeks down and already hungry and having major cravings. talk with you all soon! Train hard, smart and efficient.

    The start of week 3 dieting/training

    week 3 1-25-10.jpg

    week 3 1-25-10 #2.jpg

    well this morning still only 5lbs down and here are my pics for the start of week 3. I have noticed some changes in the upper body. That is usually the 1st area to lean out. I have cut calories a little bit to try speed up the process. I feel good and training is getting more and more intense. I am loving the fact I can push harder and go longer. I will start sprints soon. Great for the buttocks lol. again no laughing!!!!!!!

    Thanks so much for your kind words. They made me smile. You're too sweet. You're ranked right up there in my opinion too. But you're better than me. You've had the determination & courage to compete. I don't know if that's something I will ever do. I'm just happy doing my own thing for now. I mean, it wasn't that long ago that I thought I'd never train again! I think at this point my BF% is around 15-17. I'm curious though, I should get it assessed properly. What BF% are you aiming for?

    What BF% are you aiming for?[/QUOTE]

    I have seen the most intraverted personalities get up on stage. It is just having faith in yourself. You certainly don't seem like you fit that type personality and just look how far you have come. I am probably going to be when it is said and done about 6 to 8% (hopefully) BF. 6% is where I was the first year I competed and around 7 to 8% the 2nd year so I did pretty good those years so why change. Getting ready to go to the gym right now to do alittle bi/tri & chest talk with you soon. BTW you are in a great position right now to start thinking seriously about trying maybe just a small show near you. You know get your feet wet. If I stayed in your shape I wouldn't be dreading the diet part of training in the beginning I wouldn't hesitate. Obviously you have a certain amount of discipline to stay at that BF without having a goal. That is half the battle. Good luck chic-a-dee!

    Nice looking complexes. It's fun to see everybody's different aproach to complexes. There are so many variations, it's impossible to get bored with them.

    1-30-10 sat @ home workout

    We have about 6 to 8 inches of snow so we were not able to get to gym today!

    1 hour of interval treadmill with approx. 20 mins of core and about 1 hour of dancing with my 4 year old son (that's my kind of cardio)

    Hope everyone has a great week next week! If anyone has some more alt. for complexes (talking to you offroad) please post and let me know where to find them. I am really starting to dig in to that kind of cardio. Challenging & fun!!!!!
