MORE THAN JUST FITNESS

Day 11 ~ Legs & Abs


Heavy weight leg day!

You may have noticed I can training my legs twice a week – day one, 12 reps for the definition and day two, 5-8 reps for strength!


Today’s workout was about going heavy! Focusing on 5 -8 reps but dramatically increasing weight from earlier in the week where I achieved 12 reps.

I am still following the training plan set out by www.andrewcainefitness.com. Andrew has provided me with a diet and training plan, which will aid me to reach my goal. (Keep my body mass, drop the fat)

So far, I feel leaner and can see a difference in my body’s definition however still weigh the same. (So achieving my goal...so far!)
