Barbell on Body Contact – Leg Day
Havn’t posted any workout pics in a minute as we had a slew of great transformations to share with you all, we hope you all were inspired by those as we are. Also last week was our deload/lightweight week so we didnt want to bore you all with the light stuff But we are back with addition of Barbell on Body contact which is Leg Day. No machines were used in the making of this workout We didnt “feel the burn”! via leg extensions or whatever machines that most gyms out there have, we just loaded up the barbell and did the damn thing with it. There is something primal about just lifting heavy stuff without the aid of the machine. For example there will be no smith machine to help me pick up our child if she is injured or no machine to help us lift furniture going upstairs, its just you against gravity without help. Matter of fact, maybe as a challenge to yourself this week in your gym travels, try to complete a workout WITHOUT a machine & let us know your experience, was it harder? did u have to think of exercises to do without going to your favorite machine? Let us know your experience.
We just started our 1st week of cycle 4 of the 5/3/1 program and as stated previously, we love this program. We are making good gains with it as our core lifts have gone up. Now that we are entering our “lean out” “Aruba Prep” stage for the next 9 weeks, we wont be trying to set new rep records on the last sets as we had done previously as we don’t want to hamper our recovery between workouts on less calories and carbs. But we will be still hitting those reps + 1 extra for good measure.
