Word & Weight
Word: James 1:2-3
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
We feel like when we are in trials we are getting second best. BUT we can use every situation we face to build patience and give God more glory! Being patience isn't easy, its being consistent in all things all the time, regardless of what happens! It's a refining process for sure, but will we allow ourselves to go through it?
Weight:Lat Pull Over
Try to keep your back flatter than mine!
You can have your arms straight with only a slight bend in the elbow OR you can keep them in a triceps skull crusher position like in my video. Raise the bar toward the ceiling and lower it behind your head (as far as possible without pain or discomfort) in one fluid motion (shown). Squeeze your shoulder blades together, then pull the weight back over your head and lower it toward your belly button or waist. Do three sets of 12-15 reps.
IFBB PRO Felicia Romero:
I had the treat to meet and sit in on a seminar with Felicia Romero, IFBB Pro Figure girl, fitness model and trainer! She was amazing and even took time to critique some girls at the seminar!
I asked her what I should be working on and she said one thing was growing my lats! It's taking patience let me tell you, but I am working on it! Hard to pose and take a pic, but I had an OK pump today after about 6 sets of work. Getting there one rep, one step at a time!
What is one area that YOU would like to improve on? Have a blessed week!
