I saw this & thought it would be good for today.

So, I’m no sexist and I think this can also refer to guys as well.
In life, things will break you down but I truly believe
that it’s all about how you handle the situation.

If you let it get you down, it will bring you down.
But if you look at it as a new opportunity & challenge to turn things around,
then you will bounce back stronger than before!

So today, look in the mirror & see what you’re proud of,
not things that you need to “fix”.
It’s all about the way you look at a situation Winking smile

So today, I’m proud of my strength that
I’ve been able to build over the years!

Speaking of strength, onto a
HAMSTRING & CALF CIRCUIT WORKOUT

I did each exercise for as many as possible!
between 15-20 reps.

1) Hamstring Curls
2) Toe Pointers – Pushing away with your toes
& really concentrating on your calves.
3) Half deadlifts- holding onto dumb bells,
(I used 25 lbs)

You start with a nice flat back, chin up,
knees bent at a 90 degree angle.
Then you use your hamstrings and
pull bringing the weights up to your knees,
then return back down to your toes
with the weights without touching the weights to the ground.

This really stretches out your hamstrings
& also strengthens them as well!

I did 4 rounds of this with about 2 minutes rest in between each set.

Great way to really target your hamstrings & calves!!

Hope you all enjoy your day!
