Arms and tweaked recipes

18 Aug

Happy Saturday! I leave tomorrow night for my next trip to see future hubby (yay!) so no promises on the next post for a week or so…

Today I went to the gym and did arms with some abs. It was a little bit of everything since tomorrow I’ll get in cardio before my flight and then it’ll be a couple days until I can see a gym again. I also made those mini-quiche again but with a couple changes I’ll put at the bottom of this post.

I’ll post the workout but first random gym etiquette comment/question: Guys, does grunting etc really help you lift? There’s a certain gym member who, I swear, every time he lifts makes me concerned he’s having a heart attack. Aside from it being distracting he then drops the weights when he’s done so, the whole nine yards. I keep my music pretty loud on my iPod and I can hear him clearly through it. What do you think? Against gym etiquette or just someone who needs to vent at the gym?

Okay, I digress, the arm workout:

20 bicep curls

20 dumbbell rows

20 overhead tricep extensions

15 lateral to front shoulder raises

*2 sets

20 hammer bicep curls

12 lateral shoulder raises with hands turned down (palms back instead of forward)

8 pull-ups on assisted machine

20 tricep dips

*2 sets

12 single arm cable flys (R arm)

12 reverse single arm cable flys (R arm)

8 bicep curls with heavier weight

12 flys (L arm)

12 reverse flys (L arm)

8 bicep curls

**I was rotating into the cables so I did one arm at a time, in between the next sets I did crunches on the incline with a weight plate. I did 2 sets of each fly/arm and then finished with some abs and stretching.


For the quiche… I used the same recipe as:

But instead of 12, I had 8 pieces of turkey bacon which I pre-cooked and mixed into the egg mixture before baking. I liked it better actually and since it was less bacon, it had less calories and less fat. I also did 1/2 C whole milk and 1/2 C 1% milk but that was just for personal taste. They’re great to freeze and reheat later (the bacon mixed in instead of wrapped was also easier to reheat evenly)
