S.T.A.B

This morning started off quick! From the moment little B woke up at about 7 we got tanner and ate a little breakfast. Since I was going straight to my workout I didn't want anything big to be in my belly so I snacked on a handful of nuts

And half of a banana smothered with AB. 

 Today was one of my all time workouts!
S.T.A.B!!! Shoulders, triceps, abs and biceps! This workout is an amazing upper body shredder!! If you want nice toned, & leaned arms throw this into your workout schedule! Courtesy of GPP Fitness!

Shoulder Medley - 4 rounds
           20 front raises 15/20
           20 upright row 15/20
           20 OH press 15/20
Triceps Medley - 4 rounds
            10 narrow push-ups  BW
            20 skull crushers 15/20        
            20 OH French press 15/20
Ab Medley - 4 rounds
            20 situps
            20 R side ups
            20 L side ups         
            20 Superman back ext's 
Biceps 21’s - 4 rounds   (see demo)      
            7 bottom to half 15/20
            7 half to full 15/20
            7 full 15/20
The first number (15lb)  is the recommended weight for women and the 2nd is for the men. I used the #20 pounder for everything besides the overhead french presses.. and I used a 45lb bar for the biceps. Man, It burned.. I was rethinking my weight decision that 4th round.. But I got through it!

*If you are a beginner, don't be afraid to drop reps! Its painful, but completely worth it!

Post workout: 

I usually prefer a green monster post workout but I had a few errands to run after the workout and knew I wouldn't get home in time to get my protein in time post workout. Since I purchased these babies for Ragnar last week, I find them to be convienent and tasty! 
**You always want to be sure to get some sort of protein in your system post workout.. No longer then 30 minutes. At least 15g, no more then 30g. It assists with muscle recovery and will help you achieve your results faster. 

A few weeks ago we had a combined birthday party..
for them. 
Have you ever tried to take a picture of 12 one year olds at the same time? geez. I think every mom was sweating trying to get them to cooperate, look at the camera, smile, not crawl or walk away.. it was fabulous.
We got a few good pictures of T & B!

I love these two SO much. They are my life and through the chaos, I always take a step back and realize how blessed I am to have them in my life. I think every mom understands the feeling. 
I can't believe my babies are almost one!! (July 14) That year flew by!
