Gym Regime: Back & Biceps

6.23.2014
So last week I mentioned I would start sharing my gym regime with you. Today I am sharing one of my favorites, back & biceps.

WARNING. I am a sweaty, hot, nervous, blurry mess. Turns out taking pictures in a gym makes me feel extremely self-conscience. I was getting so upset with Jon telling him take the pictures in a sneaky way and do it faster and get it over worth. It made for some really crappy pictures, but they hopefully illustrate the exercises in a way you can understand.

For each exercise we do 3 sets of 12 reps. I choose to lift weight that I can still preform with good form, but that exhausts me by the third set. We move back and forth between back and bicep exercises taking a rest between each exercise. 

Also, before each workout we run 2 miles to get our sweat on and do 20 minutes of abs.


Funny thing. I hated working out my arms up until recently when I started noticing more definition in them. Then I started to work them out harder and noticed the muscle I was building. So this routine has quickly jumped up there as one of my favorites of the week!

Don't forget all good gym motivation comes from cute workouts clothes, am I right?

  8. Look at your arms! I've enjoyed gaining some definition recently, too. I don't want to bulk up too much, but that little bump on the shoulders down to the bicep is so fun to have, right??

  24. In bygone times days, gyms happen to be also produced in a straight forward way. Sole machinery and additionally weights happen to be placed in that respect there.
