It’s been quite a while since I posted here. I am a 33 year old mum to a boy who will be 3 in June. I have been weight training for a year now. I had very flabby skin and lost a lot of muscle in the past due to incorrect diets and a lot of aerobic exercise. My husband introduced me to weight training and I loved it straight away. I love the way my body is changing with bodybuilding.
I would like to gain muscle and look good. I know it’s hard and it takes time but I am determined to do it. I am setting up my own gym, which includes incline/decline/flat bench, barbell, dumbells, free weights, pec deck, lat pulldown and stationary bike. It’s very bare yet but I am going to buy more equipment soon.
It’s very important for me to have my own equipment because with a toddler I don’t have time to go to a gym (which is about an hour away). It means that I save time too.
I train 2 days on and 1 day off. On the day off I usually do cardio. I use free weights mostly. This is how I work it out:
day 1: back & hamstings (with deadlifts)& abs
day 2: chest & triceps & abs
day 3: cardio
day 4: glutes ( deadlifts), quads, calves and abs
day 5: shoulders, biceps, forearms and abs
day 6: cardio
day 7: repeat day 1
I do my workout in the morning after breakfast. I do 4 exercises per bodypart and 4 sets per exercise. I take mulitvitamins in the morning and I scoop whey postworkout.
Lately, I am feeling very tired and can’t lift as much as I used to and can’t go through all the reps either. I feel frustrated.
Any comments please?
