Lifting Like a Girl #5

Sunday, January 05, 2014

Okay, so if you were drooling over my 60 pound lifts in my previous lifting blog, I stand corrected. I was only lifting 15 pounds per dumbbell. I will get to 60 soon though. I increased the weight from 30 to 40 tonight. Oh yeah!!

Traditional Lat Pulldown Machine

Single Leg Hip Flexion with Band
Sets: 2 Reps: 12 5 18 remove

Question for anyone following the New Rules of Lifting for Women: Do you have a better substitute exercise for the Prone Jackknife? I don't have a ball and don't want to buy one. I've been doing a standing leg raise using a band, but I don't feel like I'm getting enough resistance. I'm afraid to choke up any more on the band.

    Lifting heavy is the only way to go

    I know they recommend plants instead of the crunches so I would substitute planks or russian twists.

    Very cool. I started that routine awhile ago..then stopped for some reason :/ I used never found a good substitute for that for that exercise when I did it.the exercise hurt my wrist and so it was something I had a hard time doing.I think doing like apps would be a solid option. You will totally get to 60 pounds for your lifts! Way to go!
