September Favourite Workout

I know I haven’t been writing about my fitness activities too much recently, but that doesn’t mean I’m not exercising, guys! I love it way too much to stop. I do my workout regularly 3-4 times a week. However since my daughter’s school started I have a little bit more responsibilities at home, plus I’m trying to catch up with any outstanding photography projects I had left. That seriously shortened the time I have for myself, so I’ve decided to choose shorter workouts. Besides I really want to focus on improving my flexibility, that’s why workouts are usually 30min long and then I do about 30min of good stretching. So far it seems to be working just fine.

Favourite Workout in September

But what I want to share with you today is the dumbbell workout which I found on youtube this month. This is by far one of the best workouts I’ve done recently. It looks so innocent, but oh my!!! the DOMs it gave me the day after and two days after!!!!! OMG! I’ve been missing those so much actually so I’m honestly happy and so assured now that the workout is doing its job really great. Call me a masochist or something but I love that muscle soreness after a good workout! I know I’m not the only one, right?Β  We’re basically total fitness freaks, all of us, aren’t we?

This is the workout:

 

I often look for interesting workouts on youtube and sometimes add my own to the whole session.


Here’s an example of one of my weights ARM workouts with an addition of tabata from Popsugar fitness, which has been one of my favourite channels recently.


Arms check

I haven’t been really doing much weight lifting in September, perhaps once a week in general because gaining muscle tissue has not been not my goal recently. That’s why I wasn’t checking any progress. Yesterday I did, and to my pure shock I’ve noticed that my biceps has grown a little!? Really? Can you see that? Or is it my mind playing tricks on me? (oh I hope not! )

The first photo below is from May this year, the second one was taken yesterday. I know the light and angle is a bit different, but I could see a slight difference! My arms are the weakest part of my body, they are very slim and they don’t really want to grow so I’m happy even if there’s a minimal progress. I think next time I should take measurements. Happy days! woohoo!

Arms Progress

A little progress is still progress!

I don’t see much progress in the way my whole body looks anyway, but at least I’m not going backwards, which is a great thing, I think … At my age I’m not expecting it to go as easy and fast as when I was a teenager! I work out cause I love it and I’m sure my body, my health, will benefit from my physical activities, so that’s a pro- argument enough. At my own pace, not stressing out about goals and deadlines. Just to feel better. I’m sure progress will come eventually, right? It’s already much much better than 4 years ago when I started.

How about you?
