Fridays are always happy days to me, but this one in particular has something special: I’m officially attempting to run again since those horrible shin splints. I’ll report back as soon as I run a few miles over the weekend.
In the meantime, the gym has been my only form of exercise.
And this is me feeling intimidated about taking pictures of myself in public. I still don’t know how bloggers do this.
Since I’ve been lifting a lot in the last couple of weeks. I wanted to share with your guys my favorite fitness YouTubers, the ones that give me all the inspiration to go lift. Because honestly lifting is not really my thing. However, these ladies make it look like is a whole lot fun which definitely gives me more motivation to do it. Plus, I copy their exercises and postures which makes me look like I’m a total pro at the gym
or at least that’s what I think I look.
Let’s take a minute to acknowledge the fact that she ate 12,000 calories the day before the video below. SAY WHAT. But the reason for me to feature this particular video, is because of the killer upper body workout she put together.
And this is another one workout that I’m looking forward to try.
I started watching Whitney’s channel because of her what I eat in a day videos. Then started watching her workout routines and shortly became a little bit more inspired to lift more. She is so enthusiastic about this lifestyle that is kind of contagious. This video right down here is my favorite one of her workout routines. The fact that it can be only done with dumbbells keeps me away from dealing with complex machines at the gym.
She is so funny and creative when it comes to creating new lifting routines. This is another workout I’ve been wanting to try.
What I like the most about these two YouTubers is that they are regular girls just like myself. I truly admire bikini competitors but I don’t feel related to them as much, and therefore their videos are not really an inspiration for me to go lift.
Do you need extra inspiration to go lifting or any other kind of exercises? If so, where do you look for it?
