Hey FitFam!

So first of all I want to say "DAMN" I got a lot of feedback on my "Child Obesity" Reblog post and it is all wonderful because I am learning from all of you how you feel about the matter. I wrote that original post toward the beginning of my writing days back in 2015 so my writing is very "childish" compared to now, and so it might come off like I am being a "biased bitch", but honestly, the meme wasn't the purpose of me reblogging the post, the only purpose the meme served was explaining how I felt in that particular situation. So if you were one of those people who got upset by the meme, sorry, but it is what it is, there are meme's like that posted all over social media and I don't hear or see people advocating against them, so in my opinion I had a right to judge the meme by thinking that it was sad to see a child who was overweight and not know why or how she felt about it; while others thought it was funny and cute, and another person getting offended because they work with the welfare office and think they know about everyone's situation when really they only know what they are told, not everyone who is on welfare is the same situation and how dare she judge me for judging the meme, when she is judging by saying people sometimes can't afford eating healthier because I work at the welfare office and know this; well guess what? NOT everyone on welfare is broke ass , no job, some of them just need extra help and shame on you for assuming family's on welfare can't afford to eat healthier. Now putting that all aside, I have learned more since writing that post, and I have been introduced to different reasons why children become obese, was it right for me to say the child on the meme was being abused? Personally, yes. because I was asked if I thought so and personally no matter what stand point I look at it from, I see a child who MIGHT be getting made fun of, who MIGHT be dealing with self esteem issues, who MIGHT have parents who don't give a fuck and who MIGHT be struggling just enough to consider suicide. So no matter if the parents are good natured and she just has a health conditions or if the parents are fuck ups and don't give a shit, all that matters is I see someone who COULD be broken.. and that is enough for me to say, it saddens me that children are being  bullied and tormented because of something their parents can or cannot control. It is in fact the child who endures the most pain from beginning to end because it is their body and their life they are living. That is my opinion. CHILD OBESITY IS REAL! SO REAL THAT INSTEAD OF PUTTING CHILDREN DOWN AND MAKING LIGHT OF THEIR WEIGHT, WE SHOULD MAKE PEOPLE AWARE AND ADVOCATE AGAINST BULLYING. 

 

Now to my workout.. -sorry for the minor rant.

 

Warmup:

 

  • I did not to a proper warm up again today, lol shh
Workout Session:
  • Low Row: 100lb, 5 sets, 10 reps
  • Tricep pushdowns: 50lb, 5 sets, 10 reps
  • Cable curls- 30lb, 5 sets, 10 reps
  • incline pushups- 2 sets, 10 reps
  • External Rotation with Cable: 10lb, 5 sets, 12 reps each arm
Compound exercise:
  • Squat to shoulder press: 10lb dumbbells, 5 sets, 10 reps
Isolation exercise:
  • Standing upright row (cable): 30lb, 5 sets, 10 reps
I went back and forth between the compound and Isolation exercise.
  • Bentover barbell row: 85lb, 3 sets, 8-10 reps
  • Bench press: 55lb, 3 sets, 10 reps
My workout wasn't all that much from looking at it, but I felt it afterwards and during. Right now my bench press is only 70lb at the highest, but I am working on it day by day. I can Low row at 120lb comfortably, My tricep pushdowns are normally around 60-70 lb right now, cable curls, I can do 30 fine, 35 gets to be a bit harder for me. External rotation, not sure, because I haven't tried going much higher than 10lb. Overall good workout for a Wednesday! Feel free to share your workouts in the comment section!
