I've been playing around with the number of sets I do. If you are uncomfortable starting out try for three and you can try more next time. I had a lot of energy going into this workout, and there are days I have zero but going into the workout my goal is three and I can try for four or five.

Leg Day 11.26.16

Saturday, November 26, 2016

I've decided I want to begin to share my workouts for accountability reasons and sharing my fitness side more frequent. Workout routines used to be some secret that could not be mentioned but now and days I'd love to share what I do in the gym. When I first started to get serious in the gym I kept a log and wrote down everything I did that day. I'll be doing something similar but I will not disclose the weights I am lifting unless I hit an epic personal record (aka PR). I do my best to attend the gym 3-5 times a week.  I'm not a personal trainer, CPR certified, power lifter, or prepping for a competition. I'd love feedback or suggestions for future fitness and workout related posts! 

Disclaimer: These are to be done at your own level, use your best judgment. If you are new to working out start light and reduce the amount of repetitions or sets until you get used to a regular regimen. Allow your body to adapt and increase the intensity as you get comfortable.
