Lift Like A Girl
Working out with my workout buddy. Super simple, but tough. Just 3 exercises in circuit fashion: barbell push press, suspension trainer pull-up, and skater squats. I call this 3-exercise circuit format the "ultimate Lift Like a Girl workout template." Details and sample program here: http://www.niashanks.com/ultimate-lift-like-girl-workout-template/
Founder Nia Shanks demonstrates that women can lift just as well as men (if not better!). She encourages all women to start strength training, regardless of their background, and wants to disregard the approach to exercise as punishment for eating. She provides tips to a healthy lifestyle in a relatable way. Instead of focusing solely on what you do in the gym, she also gives advice on ways to improve other aspects of your life so your whole mental and physical wellbeing is enhanced.

Don't have any kettlebells? Dumbbell snatches work just As well! Use your power from your lower body to get that weight up —abs firm and stand tall! Workout Wednesday included legs and shoulders.
