Shout Out!

Today I thought I would provide you guys with my favourite bloggers (apart from myself of course) in the women’s weightlifting arena, each of these women are amazing in their own right and have inspired me and I’m sure will inspire you to reach your fitness dreams.

Squat and Press

Do this all over workout 2-3 times per week and leave at least a day in between..

Each move targets multiple muscle groups and you should rest 30-60 seconds after each set.

Squat to over head press:

Targets: Quadriceps, hamstrings, butt, abs and shoulders.

  1. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, with elbows bent and weights of a comfortable weight and size in each hand.
  2. Lower into a squat, but make sure not to let your knees go past your toes.
  3. Hold for a moment.
  4. Push through heels to stand up whilst pressing the weights overhead.

Do three sets of 15 reps.
