In recent months I've fallen in love with working my arms. Leg day is and always has been my favourite, but nowadays arms is a close second. I'm noticing a lot more progress with my arms which is definitely pushing me to keep it up and see what else I can do! Have a read through, give this workout a try and let me know how you get on!
I struggle to workout to the music played in the gym, I much prefer listening to playlists that I've put together. So I wanted to share a playlist with you in the hope that it'll be the same for you.
As it's now the end of June, believe it or not! Wasn't Christmas last week?! I wanted to summarise how this month has gone for me. So here they are, my favourite music, netflix shows, book, workouts, food and my body progress alongside my goals for July.

Some don't like leg day and many actively avoid it. But legs and glutes are two of my favourite things to focus on at the gym. So here's my workout to train my legs and booty, why not give it a try and let me know how you get on.
I almost didn't go to the gym yesterday. The sun was shining as I left work, I was going to a gig with friends at my local and my glutes were still aching from my workout on Wednesday. (First day back after a few weeks out is always a killer!)

Here's my back workout followed by a brief ab workout, give it a go and let me know how you get on!
