Now, to my weekend. I went to visit my new boo, (I have a boyfriend now!) at his Military Base in Louisiana. I made the three hour trek with my pooch, and it went without a hitch.  I got there and we hung out, watched football, went to eat with his friends, and watch a movie. The next day, we went to the gym and GOT. IT. IN. Did I mention he and his friend are training for a fitness competition? I had an amazing workout with his guidance and his friend and wife. It was almost like a double gym date of sorts lol. We did barbell exercises, leg lift machine exercises, dumbbell exercises, and resistance bands. Then we went and did 30 minutes of cardio. I was HUNGRY! I tore into one of my pre prepped meals when I got back into the house. After that, he gave me a mini tour of the post, and took a test for class. we spent the rest of the time watching some football (I love Football!). I had such a great time I didn’t want to leave. 😦

Women and weightlifting?

Yes, ladies we can weight lift. Tribesports has an awesome article out about weightlifting and we want to challenge you in your fitness endeavours to lift it up!
Weightlifting is not meant to bulk you up like a guy, but to tone and accentuate those lovely muscles you have! Trust me I thought the same thing, ” Oh my goodness if I lift weights, I am going to look like a man!” No, that’s not true. You would have to have a strict protein regimen in order to look like that and ladies, I love my carbs, so that isn’t happening over here. Check out the article here (A good read!!!). Nia Shanks the author of the article, is a woman, who lifts, and is anything but bulky. She encourages all of her clients to lift at least their body weight if not more. It can be done! So I am here to challenge you to get lifted!!!
