Yesterdays workout (i hope i remember correctly, i forgot to take my palm-computer-thingie with me):

Barbell bent-over row
- 47 kg / 103 lbs * 10 (4 sets)
Pulldown on cable machine with "pro style" lat bar (with the shovel-like thingies at the ends)
- 40 kg / 88 lbs * 10 (4 sets)
Dumbell bench press
- 13,5 kg / 30 lbs * 10 (4 sets)
Row on cable machine
- 35 kg / 77 lbs * 10 (3 sets)
- 40 kg / 88 lbs * 8

"Side crunches" on cable machine
- 55 kg / 121 lbs * 10 (4 sets)
Worked with my bench: dumbells as low i could get them and then lifted up half-way (i noticed weakness in those muscles when i was trying out my max bench last time)
- 10 kg / 22 lbs * 10 (4 sets)
Upright row on cable machine
- 15 kg / 33 lbs * 15
- 20 kg / 44 lbs * 10
- 25 kg / 55 lbs * 10 (3 sets)

"Hip raises"
- max * 5
+ Tried to bench a max of 45 kg / 99 lbs but couldn't: i apparently have no muscles to use if i lower the bar to the chest :lol: So i'm working on that now.

Last time i did this workout, i noticed that it wasn't as hard as the other days, especially because my back muscles couldn't deal with pull-ups yet (not even on the cable machine). So i added the extra pec-workout and the shoulder workout.

Today we're going to go bicycling, yay! I hope for woods and varying terrain so i can really try my new bike out! :heart:

Bigger butt, huh? what worked best for me for my glutes and not making my legs any bigger were: low cable kickbacks, one legged king squats, and walking lunges with little weight for high reps.

awesome workouts and amazing transformation! keep it up!!!
the beginning is always today.

We went to my parents cottage for the weekend, so no real work-outs. Gathered blueberries and tried to search for mushrooms in the forest, but only found some chentarelles in the yard of the cottage :lol: We also tried to do some tandem-kayaking, but the weather was really windy and lots of motor-boats out there making waves, so we went back to the shore after maybe half an hour. We ate lots of good food (bbq <3), strawberries and some delicious chocolate-cherry vegan cake my mum had made us.

We went biking again for about two hours when we bot back home on Sunday. It was really fun, because for about one hour we were biking in the woods in somewhat difficult terrain. I almost fell down many times, was afraid all the time and had big adrenaline rushes, but it was really fun! I can't wait to go again!

Today was Monday and gym-day:
Chest fly
- 6 kg / 13 lbs * 15
- 8 kg / 17 lbs * 10 (4 sets)
Seated calf raise
- 55 kg / 88 lbs * 12 (4 sets)

Lunges with dumbells
- 13,5 kg or 27 kg / 29 lbs or 59 lbs * 10 (4 sets)
Declined bench press
- Dumbells: 8 kg / 13 lbs * 15

- 27 kg / 60 lbs * 9 (2 sets)
- 27 kg / 60 lbs * 6
Declined (maybe 30 degrees from the floor) sit-ups
