Trip to New Zealand!
Hey friends! I decided to make a separate travel blog to post about my travels. This year was New Zealand. I just got back yesterday so I'm working on each day with lots of pictures but I have to first two days posted about already.
I was at Costco yesterday to return some fuzzy (moldy) avocados and I wanted to pick up some hummus. On my way to the coolers I walked past their pre-mixed salads and saw this quinoa salad. I know it's more cost efficient to make it myself but I wanted something quick.
This is my go-to program when I don't know what to do and when I still want results. My arms get CARVED when I follow this program as well as my legs. I do these as circuits - meaning I do one exercise and move onto the next completing all exercises and then repeat again for as many times as I can or have time for. Aim for 2-4 rounds depending on your fitness level and time. This is a 4 day split and you can use it however fits your schedule: Day #1 - biceps, triceps, shoulders Day #2 - legs & abs Day #3 - back, chest, shoulders Day #4 - plyo & abs You can do this every day for 4 days on, 3 days off. You can do them every other day. Or you can just do it whenever you have time to do a workout! Some of the exercise do use a cable machine but you can easily swap them out for dumbbell or band exercises. Just make sure you're working the same muscles or muscle group. I love this split because it is so flexible and can work for so many people.
In May I started Melissa Bender's 30 day sculpted abs challenge. I haven't finished it but I have about half left so I'm going to finish them and then I want to finish the rest of the free ZWOW's since I made it up to ZWOW #52.
