    On A Mission

    I have been athletic since I was in grade school. I was on the track team, a cheerleader, gymnastics, rode my bike, and did most anything that kept me moving from yard work, swimming, and dancing. In my early 20's I was a high impact aerobics instructor. During the next 2...

    Never eat before working out.

    .. So I hired a personal trainer to help me reach my fitness goals. I wasn't in the best shape, but I still got pushed to my limits. I couldn't breathe. I was light headed. It felt good. But I was dizzy. Then on my way home I had to pull my car over to puke on the side of the...

    I work out more than most,

    but not as much as some. It’s enjoyable for me and puts me in a good mood. Feeling sore from a good workout is worth it. And when I start to feel myself get stronger, or see a person checking me out for a bit longer than what is polite…THAT is what keeps me going with a...

    I've been working out

    for a while and I made gains, but it was quite slow. So recently I hired a personal trainer and **** me he's a good coach. I used to get mild DOMS occassionally, but after back and biceps day, I haven't been able to straighten my arms for like 4 days.

    I have gone through "dry spells" (for lack of a

    better of a term) and haven't worked out for months. I have no excuses, I have a fully equipped gym in the comfort in my home. I shamefully admit that it's a combination of laziness and depression. Both which can be eliminated with exercise. When I did get back into the...

    I have such a love/hate relationship with ab

    workouts. They can be so painful and strenuous but the soreness is worth it in the end 💪

    I don't work out because I hate the way my body

    looks or I want to have an ideal body. I just work out because it feels good, I like to know that I am taking care of myself. Its a great sensation to wake up sore the next day and know that I pushed my limits.

    Daily Basis

    It's what I do. I'm an athlete and I run an average of 9-11 miles every day. As a part of my warm up I do push ups and sit ups as well. Lately I've been on a diet and I've lost 5 lbs. I've been doing extra sit ups as well and Im so proud of my new slightly protruding abs that I...

    I love the feeling after a good work out.

    Today's workout was a little cardio and mainly an arms day! My arms feel tired and relaxed. It's a good feeling. Now to finish off with a hot shower! Work outs can really make you feel so relaxed after you are done. One of my favorite activities of the day!

    The personal trainer changed up my routine

    today. She used a tabata style methodology instead of straight strength training. For example, I do usually do 3 sets of squats using the smith machine. Today she cut the weight to 60% and upped the sets to 8 with no set number of reps. Each set was 20 seconds of squats and 10...

    I have found out proteins are not necessary at

    I swim 2 kilometers five days a week,

    lift weights for and hour after each swim this time of year. I always feel better after and find if I don't exercise I am less energetic.
