Happy Training...

I trained my back and biceps last night around 8:30 pm. I am beginning to get used to the new gym and seeing the same people daily. Of course all the equipment that I wanted to train on was in use. I clumsily stood around for a few minutes waiting for the Lat Pull Down Cable thingy to be available. I felt a little stupid just standing around watching everyone else train as I waited for the equipment, so I went  to a machine and did some rows. This gym used PRECOR equipment/machines and I must say, I like the equipment. It is kinda heavy duty hard core machines. Cool....

Besides not having a cage or squat rack, this gym is pretty cool. I met a couple of nice couple who train hard...I mean the grunting and and eeking out every rep til failure thing. The dude is really hardcore....pushing people he is working with to their max. One of the people he pushes really hard is his cute little wife...who is a tiny little thing. But let me tell you about this tiny girl....she placed  a couple of 45's on the barbell and straight up knocked out 8 reps with no problem at all. Geez...... She is all about 100 pounds lol. So, much weight is that??? 135 pounds!!
She easily did 135 pounds...more weight then she even weighs. So....that got my Her husband approached  me and introduced himself. He complimented my intensity and form when I train. He asked me if I had a trainer and I said yes. He used to compete. His wife never competed, but she looks like she does.

Nutrition Tips....

My current coach turned me on to this amazing high protein legume!! I eat edemame (SOY BEANS) whenever I am hungry or too rushed to eat something else. I munch on the entire bag some days. Super high fiber so when it is all said and done, the calorie content is low if you subtract the fiber carbs. Love this stuff!!!
