Back day workout

Back day workout! Today is typically a cardio day for me but my legs were still sore from leg day so I decided to do back instead. These are a few exercises from this weeks back workout:

•Close grip lat pulldowns

•Rows

•Straight arm pull downs

•Wide grip lat pulldowns

I typically do 4 sets of 10 for each exercise but you’re free to do whatever works for you! Happy lifting! 💪🏻

Mustard vinaigrette chicken

Ingredients:

•1/2 oz apple cider vinegar

•8 oz asparagus

•2 boneless, skinless chicken breast

•1/2 oz feta cheese

•1 tbsp grainy mustard

•1/2 oz light brown sugar

•2 zucchini

Recipe:

Preheat oven to 400. Trim ends off asparagus and dice zucchini. Pat chicken dry and season with salt and pepper.

Combine vinegar, mustard, a pinch of salt, a pinch of pepper and 2 tbsp olive oil in a bowl.

Grill chicken on grill (I used stovetop cast iron) for 3 minutes on each side. Transfer to baking sheet and baste with 1/2 vinegar mixture. Place in oven for 15 minutes.

While chicken cooks, place asparagus on baking sheet. Brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook asparagus for 10 minutes.

Toss chopped zucchini in a bowl with 2 tbsp of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place zucchini pieces on stove top grill. Cook on each side for 3-4 minutes.

Once food is cooked, plate food and top chicken with remaining vinaigrette and top asparagus with feta. Enjoy!

Shoulder day exercises

Shoulder day! Here are a few exercises from my shoulder workout this week!

I wish I was one of those people that looked cute when working out. 😂 I make weird faces and pull my neck so I have a double chin sometimes. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Oh well. Whatever gets the job done!

•Front raises 4 x 10 w/ 25lb plate

•Lateral raise 4 x 10 w/ 10lb DB

•Shoulder press 4 x 10 w/ 15lb DB

•Front cable raise 4 x 10 w/ 10lb weight stack

Obviously you can adjust the weight and reps to cater better to your own body. These are just what I am doing for the week! Happy lifting!
