Killer Legs

February 23, 2015

It’s been a few months since I started incorporating unilateral movements into my upper body workouts. I like morphing things. It’s interesting that the more years you spend in the gym, the more you just know what’s working and what you need to change. Once I finish the heavier bilateral movements, I’ve been hitting some […]

Leg Killa

July 28, 2014

Here is a look at my quick and dirty leg day. I usually get between 400-600 reps. in for each workout depending on how heavy I go. If I do paused reps. that number significantly decreases. This was a 40 minute monster/drop set leg workout with 420 reps. and a running primer on the treadmill […]

November 23, 2011

As you all know, tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Time to give thanks, and time to eat a bunch of food! After Thanksgiving, we all need a jolt to push us off the couch and to that next level, so try this if you dare! I have been seeing some results in my shoulder and trap muscles […]

Goals on Goals

May 1, 2016

In the first month of 2016, I set a goal to squat a plate + a quarter by the end of the year. Today I achieved that goal within 4 months and I’m proud of myself. It’s time to set a new leg day goal for the remaining seven months of this year. My new […]

Lemme Guess

October 6, 2015

Lately I’ve been more than the usual firework in the gym. I can’t think of something that pisses me off more than a woman who doesn’t put her weights away. I’ve never really seen men do that, so I can say without a doubt that it is 99% women who are guilty of this laziness. […]

Dat Calf Doe: The Rainy Day Silver Lining

June 16, 2015

“The paradise in women is not the v-shape manipulation between their legs, or the two lovely bombs, set on their bosom that can blast any strong, holy spirit filled individual, but that part of her that cannot be described, yet can only be felt.” ••••~Michael Bassey Johnson Feeling sick today and on top of that, […]

Fit No Matter What

May 19, 2015

On Monday I was only able to get in a bit of fitness time while hiking around a petroglyph preserve. That meant that I had to workout today! I have a lot of stuff going on at work through the end on the fiscal year, so making time for the gym on some days will […]

V~Day Calorie Burn

February 16, 2015

Funny, but my older brother sent me a meme today that he said reminded him of me. It said… “When someone asks me what I’m doing for Valentine’s Day… Making gainz! Da fuq else?” Little did he know, but I actually went hiking on V~Day. Indeed I did! I got a little sweaty the day […]

Paused Reps: Zero Momentum

December 25, 2014

For Christmas this year, I received the gift of strength. It’s the best gift I received. On Christmas Eve I broke a leg day record by passing my personal best. I am proud to report that I reached 8 plates on the leg press. That is 360 pounds. According to weight training load calculators, my […]

Home Sweat Home

November 4, 2014

Sunday was my first day back to my real gym after a trip to the ocean. There is nothing like working out in the city I love. On Sunday I slammed an aggressive chest/back workout. Though I was off my regular training schedule last week, I was glad I wasn’t set back one bit this […]

Imma Manly Lil Biaaaatch

September 12, 2014

Today I pushed my body to the limit. Nothing is gonna get me down! I slammed a two hour workout this morning from 8-10 to complete all body parts for this week. I squatted a plate for 15 reps today. I have done it before, but I am dropping it LOW with tight form these […]

Great Thanks for Thoughtfulness

Gym Jerks

March 30, 2014

On the way out of the gym the other day, I asked the owner “who’s the gym jerk?” He was very diplomatic and didn’t give me a name, but he laughed. He just said…”you know? It was that one guy. He said he would pay for it.” The gym owner is a good guy and […]
