I hope you had a great weekend! My youngest and I share birthdays and we celebrated with family on Saturday by finally seeing Beauty and the Beast. We all loved it. It’s so good!

It’s Monday which means it’s time for another weekly home workout recap. Last week I started a 4 day split workout that my husband is doing also. I’m really liking it so far and was able to up the weights on quite a few moves during the second week.

 

Monday: Chest

  • Decline barbell bench – 10, 8, 6, 4 reps (45#, 50#, 55#, 65#)
  • Flat bench – 10, 8, 6, 4 reps (55#, 60#, 65#, 75#)
  • Incline dumbbell bench – 4 sets x 10 reps (15#)
  • Flat flyes – 4 sets x 10 reps (10#)

  • Barbell Squats – 10, 8, 6, 4 (115# on my set of 4!)
  • Stiff legged deadlifts – 10, 8, 6, 4 (125# on my set of 4!)

The curtsy lunges made my booty sore again, I love that move!

Today is chest day and I’m very much looking forward to my workout. I’m too blessed to be stressed!

Happy Monday!
