Hi guys,

As the title already suggests, the video above shows you a great exercise to target your glutes. I did this exercise in the end of my workout to really tire my glutes and feel the burn 😍

Give this a go and tell me what you thought about it!

Have a great day!!❀

love,

Hi,

Today was one of those days when I was really tired again. The doctors didn't find out what is wrong with me yet. So until then, I'm just going to be tired all the time. I could've slept all day and not do anything... I dragged myself to gym anyway, even though I didn't have the energy. I felt like falling asleep by the squat rack, but after doing a few sets I started feeling more awake! After finishing gym I felt almost normal 😊

So sometimes you just have to drag yourself to gym or go out for a run even when you don't feel like it, because you'll feel better afterwards (+ you get to eat after exercising 😍 )!

Now I'm just lying in bed, eating popcorn and watching Friends hehehe πŸ˜‹

Those were the exercises for the powerlifting routine, as an addition to them we also did some bicep exercises and in the video I'm showing you one of them. The sets for the Barbell Bicep Curl was 3x10 reps with a 15 kg barbell.

Keep posted cause I will be updating you about my progress! ❀

Hi Everyone,

We've just had a really relaxed Saturday. Started the whole day with brunch at home, very cozy ❀ We made mimosas and had bacon as well yummy! After that we have cleaned at home and watched some POI. Soon our friends are coming over to our house and we're having a poker night! Been a while since we last had, so I am looking forward to it πŸ™‹

What are you guys doing tonight? ❀

Hi guys,

As I mentioned in one of my previous videos, I have started doing Miky's powerlifting routine at gym. It has been so much fun so far, I just finished Week 1 today. Finishing Week 1 meant that today I was doing my max weights at gym in squats and deadlifts.

Max Weights:

Squat: 40 kg | 5x2 reps

Deadlift: 60 kg | 5x2 reps | New personal best!! πŸ†


Basically the routine starts with Day 1 where you do Bench Press, Overhead Press (Military Press) and Close Grip Bench Press with heavy weights because you're only doing a few sets, so they need to be effective!

Day 1

​BP 3x8 reps

OHP 4x4 reps

CGBP 4x4 reps

So you see now that you need to do heavy weigths so that you actually build up your strength, cause that's what it's all about in the end of the day! πŸ˜‰

Then comes Day 2 where you do Squats and Deadlifts, here again go heavy, cause you're not doing many sets or reps, so it needs to count!

Day 2

SQ 3x8 reps

DL 3x8 reps


How much weight should i rack on? Well I can't say exactly how much, start by just using the bar and if that feels light add 5 kg and so on. Just keep in mind that the last rep on each set should be pretty difficult to do, then you know you're going heavy enough and working towards your goal! 😊

I started squats with the bar + 5 kg on each side = 30 kg, but you can start with the bar + 2,5 kg on each side which equals up to 25 kg. With deadlifts I also started with 30 kg, but noticed straight away that it was too light, so i added 5 kg on each side, so I ended up doing 40 kg. Don't rush into things at gym, THAT is when you get hurt and have to take a break for a long time... πŸ˜“

Since I was able to max my deadlift at 60 kg for 2 reps and I knew that my max at 1 rep would be 70 kg, we set my goal to 85 kg in maybe 2-3 weeks. Woooow! 85 KG!

I will keep you guys updated on my progress! Writing about it here really inspires me to push even more and obviously the results as well! 😊 I hope I can inspire and motivate you to do the same!❀


love,
Andrea

Happy Thursday Afternoon!

This morning I woke up to my friend surprising me for a morning coffee at 9 AM 😘 We had some deep discussions about what is going on in our lives at the moment and what not! Great way to wake up and a really nice surprise!πŸ‘―

I am very sore after yesterdays arm day at gym. I wasn't able to film anything cause there were SOO many people there, it was mayhem! AT 9PM on a Wednesday, crazy! I did Military press, bench press + close grip and bicep + hammer curls with dumbbells.

To my newest obsession! I am totally in love with coconut oil, I know I am very behind on this πŸ˜„ I pretty much switched olive oil to coconut oil in everything. It gives everything such a different taste, and i need to use less of it compared to olive oil! Oh, and best of all, when I have scooped out the desired amount with a teaspoon I get to lick it and use it as a moisturizer for my lips, and it has honestly done wonders for my lips. They have been crazy dry this winter and the coconut oil is just pure bliss for my lips, worth a shot!

I will definitely be buying more coconut products, it is truly heaven on earth!❀

Products I've been looking at:

  1. Primer For Hair
  2. Shower Body Lotion
  3. Summery Body Oil

Hello,

Here is the Vlog I made yesterday!😊

As I mention in the video, the gym was so packed that it would've been bad angles all the way, so I skipped it. I have a list of all the exercises I did though, so you won't miss out on anything! πŸ’ͺ

Arm Day

  • Super set
  • Dumbbell Bicep Curl 4x8 reps
  • Hammer Curls 4x8 reps
  • 30 sec rest between each time you've done both sets

  • Standing Dumbbell Triceps Extension
  • 4x6 reps

  • Cabled Tricep Pull-Down
  • 4x12 reps

  • Close Gripped Lat Pull-Down
  • 4x12 reps

NOTICE! I was able to do one set of the Lat Pull-Downs with 45 kg!! I AM SO STOKED! I just wanted to try out one rep with the weight M was doing and I ended up doing a whole set πŸ’ƒ I was doing my sets with 20 kg, so I ended up doing the third set with 45 kg and the third set with 40 kg 8 reps and the last 4 I had to take it down to 35 kg, BUT STILL YAAAAY!


  • I finished my workout with a 8 minute HIIT exercise on the treadmill, 1 min jog - 1 min run.


Hope you guys enjoyed my vlog!


Love,
Andrea

Good morning,

We have this family group chat (I think almost everyone has, right? I think it's so much fun and it's very easy to keep in touch since we all live in different cities and countries) where we share things that we've done during the day, our up's and down's. Yesterday my sister shared a picture where she had made Jamie Oliver's Poached Eggs, they looked really good, so I decided to try the recipe out this morning...

Damn, I have no idea how they do it, but mine just ended up exploding in the pot and the water was just filled with small pieces of the egg whites haha! I usually make mine in cling film cause it's a foolproof system (I am the fool in this scenario obviously), so I thought that since I've mastered that version I will surely succeed in the other one as well.

There was nothing wrong in the taste of the eggs, I overcooked one of them but they were really good on toast. I made two pieces of toast, both with avocado as "the butter". One as a normal avocado toast and on the second toast I put a piece of ham on top.

To wrap this up, I will stick to the cling film version but this probably works if you're able to follow recipes, which let's face it, I suck at πŸ˜„

Love,
Andrea
