I am SO happy to be back to the gym though and I had a great training session today to learn some specific exercises from the LG workout plan that I didn't know how to do yet.
I was really surprised and happy to see how much more my body could do that I wasn't sure it would be able to, like have the correct form on the deadlift and squats, actually be able to do bench tricep dips and the hanging leg raises! I always forget how much stronger and more capable I am now and it feels amazing!
These are the exercises we focused on that I practiced and learned how to do correctly:
-Stiff Leg Deadlifts (Barbell)
-Tricep Dips (Bench)
-Glute Bridges (Barbell) on bench
-Squats (Barbell) – difference between front and back squats
-Hanging Leg Raises
-Rope Crunches (Cable)
-Upright Rows (Barbell)
I now feel much more capable of fully following the LG plan and getting a fantastic workout with correct form and I'm very excited that I can finally deadlift, load a barbell and use the squat rack and smith machine!
Tomorrow I'll do cardio since I did a full body practice session today and then Wednesday I should be able to restart the LG plan from week one!
