Hi!

Welcome to my blog where I share what I eat, how I train, and how I live a happy, healthy life!

 

my training split + how to get better at pull ups!

my training split + how to get better at pull ups!

Hey guys! This morning, Mike wanted to join me at the Y, so we went together and I did my cardio and he did his lift there. I am doing a 2 days on, 1 day off training split at the moment, which is giving my legs the extra time that they need to recover. I just decided this today, actually, because my hamstrings were definitely not feeling ready for day 5's programming, and I trained Thursday, Friday, Sunday, Monday, on this new program so far, so the 2:1 is working out naturally. 

We came home and had breakfast: egg whites, cucumbers, and oatmeal with strawberries and bananas for me. 

We were also due for a small BJs trip, so here is what I got...

Mike and I are headed out of town until later tonight, so I had a protein smoothie bowl before we left. I also had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but didn't take a picture today.

We won't be back until after dinner time, so I made dinner and got it all ready for us to eat the second we get home. Plan ahead, my friends, plan ahead.

Every time I share a video of myself doing chin ups or pull ups that are included in my training program, I get so many questions about how I learned to do them, what steps people can take to become better at them, and so on. Using bands for assistance is an excellent way to build the strength required to eventually do unassisted and even weighted chin ups and pull ups!

Have a great rest of your day!
