Whole30 – Day 2

Standard

Two days in, feeling the benefits of my dedication already! Today was a great day for me, minus the fact that I could barely walk, but we’ll get to that later. It’s very humbling and motivating to feel support from those around me. These next 28 days will be tough, but the encouragement and support I get from all of you will certainly help.

Day two started with a bicep and tricep workout, followed by a meal prepped day at work. As you guys know I completed my first leg day in God knows how long Sunday and I’m feeling it. My left hamstring and calf are so tight, it’s hard to walk, but the foam roller, bengay, and stretching have become my new best friends! Hopefully the tightness subsides by my next leg day!

Day 2 workout: Biceps and Triceps

Warmup:

Walk 10 minutes 3.5 mph

Biceps:
Barbell Bicep Curl: 4 sets, 10 reps each set, 20#
Alternating hammer Bicep curls: 3 sets, 10 reps each set, 10#
One arm preacher curl: 1 set, 10 reps, 10#, 2 sets, 10 reps each set, 15#

Triceps:
Cable pull down: 3 sets, 10 reps each set, 25#
Close grip bench press: 3 sets, 10 reps each set, 45#
Cable overhead tricep extensions: 3 sets, 10 reps each set, 20#

Abs:
Decline bench crunch: 3 sets, 12 reps each set
Exercise Ball crunch: 4 sets, 25 reps each set

It feels really good to be back in a workout routine! Pair that with healthy eating and it will just be a matter of time before the results start to show.

Now, on to my favorite part, the food!
