Workouts of The Week

We had such an awesome weekend here in Kentucky! 
Like, seriously, the most perfect weather!
There was not a cloud in the sky all weekend.

This is what I've been waiting for!

What could be better than sunshine and ice cream? :)

Workouts were good this week. I'm kind of having fun not following a pre-thought out plan and just making it up as I go! I do want to do a strength focus soon, but right now I'm enjoying the freedom!

WEDNESDAY LOWER BODY
This was more of a quad focused workout, but interestingly enough, my glutes were sore the next day lol. I was going to start doing higher rep squats, but as soon as I put my chucks on, I can't help but want to go heavy! It's a problem. ;)

Something comes over me when those Chucks come on!

SATURDAY LOWER BODY
This workout was focused on hams and glutes. I got a deadlift PR of 230 for 3 reps! It was the new Chucks! ;) They felt really good, but I do have some form issues to work on. I may go back to conventional for a while now to change it up. I actually did some hip thrusts for the first time in a while. They felt okay, but for some reason, I have just not felt them much in my glutes, which is why I stopped doing them. Thinking I'll add them back in and see if I feel them more, but if not, I'll stick to single leg since I actually DO really feel those.

1)Deadlift-215x3/225x3/230x3(worked up to max set of 3)/ 1 back off set 215x3
2)Hip thrust: 155x10/175x10/195x10/10
3)Glute ham raise: 0x10/15x10/20x3x8
4a)Pullthroughs: 3x12
4b)Single leg glute bridge: 3x12
5)Seated calf raise: 3x15
6)Walking lunges x100(50/leg)
