New Workout Routine Part 1 – 6/05/11 till show time!

This is it… the last lap before I get to the finish line.  I’m 40 days away from my first show and reality is setting in. I’m getting very excited right now and can’t stop thinking about the day of the show but I’m sure the panic will set in soon and I’ll be more nervous than excited. I must say that I’m very happy how far I’ve come and how I look considering this is my first show. The goal is still to have fun during this process, enjoy every minute of it and do my best. I want to have NO REGRETS! 
Diet: 
I’m amazed that I continue to get leaner with the amount of food I eat. My diet has only changed once during my entire contest prep but I get the feeling it’ll be changing this week again (I’m getting my feedback from my nutrition coach in the next couple of days). 
Cardio: 
Per the coaches – NONE! I still haven’t done one minute of cardio and I’m not complaining about that hehe:-) 
Weight Training: 
My trainer’s goal (aka Tall, Dark & Handsome fiancee) is to keep me lifting heavy for at least another 4 weeks and hopefully I’ll be able to keep up the weight that we’re setting this week. This is exactly what my body type needs in order to maintain the little muscle I have …. otherwise I’m afraid it’ll shrivel like a dried out plum! 

Chest 
Barbell Bench – 95×9, 100×7, 105×5
Dumbbell Incline – 40 lbs x 7 x 3 (the goal was to do 45 lbs but I failed miserably twice! So 40 lbs it is lol) 
Biceps
Barbell curls (with the standard 45 lbs bar): 60×9, 65×7, 70×5
Preacher curls 20 lbs x 10 x 3
Close grip EZ bar curls 65 lbs x 7 x 3

Back
Dumbbell rows – 70 lbs x 7 x 3
Pullovers – 80×10, 90×8, 100×6
Back extensions

    Amanda - omg you look awesome !!! love, love, love watching your videos – keep ’em coming !! you are so going to win this. thanx for the tips on wrists straps – i bought a few months ago some harbinger weight lifting gloves that have the wrist straps combined and they help but by the end of an upper workout my wrists let me down when i get to biceps (i’m lifting 10kg – 22lb – dumbbell curls each hand) – maybe i’ll have to split my upper w/o. enjoy your next 40 days!!
    ps how many cals are you eating a day (not on refeed days) ?ReplyCancel

    Ana C. - @ Amanda – Thank you girl! I wouldn’t be so sure about winning but I’ll be glad not to be last ☺ That’s pretty awesome weight there missy! Keep it up! I haven’t calculated how many calories I’m eating but I imagine is in the 1400 calories range? Thanks again!

    @ Baby – That’s so awesome about your show! I look forward to following your journey. Good luck too!

    @Stacey – Thank you for watching the clips! I can almost taste it lol!

    @ Mrs. Britton – Thank you so so much! I HOPE I have a winning post haha!

    @Dreaming – There is nothing better than the feeling of being strong…. Just keep working on it each day. Thanks!!!

    @ Fine – I looked at your photos and you’re looking great! Do not freak out… we all bring different things to the stage and I’m sure you’ll be rocking your own stuff! I can’t compare myself to others since the thought of it would depress me. I’ll be following your progress too. Good luck and enjoy the process ☺ReplyCancel
