Hello my name is Laura and I am a supermom! Haha 😂 Nope! We often times think that we have to do everything perfectly and often times feel like we fall short of the “perfection” that we see on the internet.
As moms, wives and women we are expected to:
Workout 6 days a week, eat clean, cut out perfect star ⭐️ shaped sandwiches, have an immaculate homes, laundry 🧺 is wash, folded AND put away, make 5 start meals for the family and the list goes on and on.
The reality is that you can’t do it all so please stop putting the pressure on yourself to do it all! Start giving yourself grace and the permission not to be a perfect supermom.
At the end of the day if you and your family is happy and healthy you are winning!
Here it is guys, the continuation and part two of the three day split I previously posted. Today’s lift focuses on the legs as we give the upper body a day of rest between the back/biceps workout from day one and the final day of the split, chest day. The routine mainly consists of heavy compound movements in the beginning as we’ll be doing squats and deadlifts. Followed up by accessory leg exercises and finished off by a little core and some rowing at the end. Drop a like and benchmark this workout guys. Let me know what you think of this workout as well as this three day split setup. I’ll be posting the final day’s routine later in the week 💪🏼
