Week 2 Fitness Challenge // Update

Hey, loves! As promised, here is my fitness update for week 2 of my challenge. I didn’t post the progress pictures for you all this week due to no changes being made to diet from week 1 to week 2. They will be up next week, though! I dropped 20g carbs from medium training days and added 2 minutes of HIIT to all my cardio days for this week.

 

My calories are still high and I am still feeling satisfied after every meal. I definitely feel the hunger on my off days when calories are lower, but that is normal.

 

Here are my current Macros:

Training day(Medium) 140pro, 305 carbs, 50 fats

OFF day(Low)                 140pro, 200 carbs, 50 fats

High Carb day(High)(Tuesday) 140pro, 400 carbs, 40 fats

 

 

Here is a taste of one of my leg days for you all! I hit legs 3 times a week since it is where I need to focus most. With legs, it is all about repetition. Reps on reps on reps…ON REPS!

 

Saturday: Heavy, high volume leg day. 5 exercises, 5 sets. 5 rounds of HIIT following.

I am really hoping to incorporate more videos on Instagram for you all when the weather is more bearable. Part of our home gym is in our garage and I would love to show you all that I do in actual motion!

I hope you all have a great rest of your week and you keep crushing your goals! Not every day will be easy, but each day counts!

    Confused on what you’re calling “sets” under Squats. Do you mean reps?
