Favorite Workout Of The Week & A Chicken Marinade

I am loving Friday's upper body workouts right now:

1) Handstand Pushup 4 sets of 5, 2 sets of 4
2a) 45° Incline Dumbbell Press 6 x 8 w/ 40lbs
2b)Chinup 9x6
3) Parallel Bar Dip 10+6 (rest pause set)
4a) Incline Hammer Curl 3x10
4b) Front Lever Hold On Straps 3x10 sec.

Know why I love this workout? Because of the high sets, I get a really good pump!  Yup, I love lifting heavy, but sometimes it feels good just to get a pump and look all "swole" and stuff! :) Ha! Plus, I love the exercises, especially all the chinups!

I thought I'd share a new chicken marinade I tried recently that I thought was really good:

4 chicken breasts(I like to cut them up into strips)
4 garlic cloves (I used garlic powder because I'm lazy)
3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
Salt, pepper, cayenne powder

I don't like just plain ol' baked chicken much at ALL, so I am always trying to find different ways to prepare it. One of my favorites is to cook it in the crockpot with taco or chili seasoning and chicken broth, but I also love marinating and grilling it, especially this time of the year.

What is your favorite way to cook chicken?


  1. Ooo that sounds like a really yummy marinade - I'm going to try it!

  2. what a great workout! i like that marinade, too :) I like doing one with balsamic vin., dry mustard, pepper, and some fresh herbs! I posted it on my blog a while ago. it always turns out sooooo moist! my mouth is watering right now!
