Thanks for stopping by! I'm a Christian, wife, mom, and fitness enthusiast. I blog about a lot of different things; working out, parenting, marriage, just life in general. I'm married to my best friend and we have three kids together. Two girls, ages 7 and 5, and a son who just turned 1 in June! Please introduce yourself and follow along as I do this thing called life. :)My Workouts

That seems like more of a back exercise than a butt one…..?


The primary movers in hip extension are:

  • gluteus maximus
  • bicep femoris
  • semitendinosus
  • semimembranous

So we simply fixed the femur in place, contracted the erectors, contracted the transverse abdominis and conducted hip extension in the sagittal plane. As long as the client does not execute lumbar flexion and extension the erector spinae group with stay in isometric contraction. The resistance (gravity and the plates) should be elevated and lowered using the primary movers of the hip extension. 

I’ve never heard of a hip extension before, that’s pretty cool! Now I’m watching youtube videos to see if it’s something I can replicate at my gym…..

My house is clean, Liam is napping, the girls are playing quietly together, and I’m sitting on the couch with my feet up just relaxing and browsing tumblr.
I don’t know when the last time this happened was but I’m diggin it!

How do women keep their thigh pieces in good shape? I keep thinking shaving your legs would dull the colors, am I wrong?

Stupid teenage boys who look muscular and they don’t even lift or watch what they eat.

Liam slept for 6 hours straight last night.

I picked up the girls’ kindles yesterday!! We’re going to set up the parental controls and add some games we know they’d like plus some educational games and books.The cases should arrive Monday. They’re going to be so surprised!

You are beautiful.

Oh my goodness, thank you :)

Lesson learned

Don’t eat a bag of cherries in one sitting. It will cause you to bloat like CRAZY, your insides will be in turmoil, and you’ll be so gassy but can’t let it rip because you don’t want to poison the the weight room which means you’ll have stomach cramps/will be running to the bathroom a lot.

The trainers here get paid extra for every class they teach. I told my boss yesterday I’d do it for no extra pay if it was during my work hours. Today co worker told me to quit being a Mexican (Mexicans do the same/better work for less pay) because RJ would quit paying all the trainers for their classes.
