What does your current weekly training routine look like?
I change it up all the time! It depends what sort of pressure I'm under at work (I'm a nurse).
Sometimes I'll manage to get a full 5 days of training in, focusing each day on a specific muscle group. Sometimes I have to do just upper body all together. It really depends on my work schedule.
What exercises do you love and hate the most?
LOVE Stiff Legged Deadlifts and Barbell Hip Thrusters!
I hate anything chest, the fact I have an enhanced chest (no secret there haha) means that training chest is a NO-NO. It is my weakest point which makes it my biggest hate.
What's the nicest random act of kindness you've seen at the gym?
I actually made a Facebook post about this the other night as it was just SO adorable!
There was a young maybe 16/17 year old teenager at the gym. He was extremely skinny, one of those guys at school who would get bullied for being so skinny. He was trying to do squats with just the barbell and was failing at both form and the weight! He then attempted to do lunges with the barbell and again it was too heavy and his form was poor.
I was wondering whether to say something to him or pull up one of the floor staff to give the poor teenager a hand when a larger (MUCH larger) gentlemen who was deadlifting around 250kgs went up to him and showed him a proper form for squatting and where he can start from to build up his strength. He then proceeded to ask the teen if he wanted to train with him that night.
The look on the kids face was just pure astonishment that this massive gentlemen would offer such a thing. It was beautiful to see.
The whole session the bigger gentlemen was joking and laughing and showing him exercises and proper form, even though whenever it was his turn for a set he had to un-rack all the weights etc. he was still just in the zone and concentrating on helping his kid. It was such a nice thing to see these days. A lot of the guys in the gym would usually laugh at the teenager struggling so I was very touched.
