Workout video. I may have chosen the wrong one.


I wanted a workout video to pump me up for a big CHEST WORKOUT and Youtube offers me this.


triceps workout video, hot babe working out.

If you’re on an iPad, you’re missing out. But click on the image to see it on Youtube.

So now I have to sit through a whole seventeen minutes of this video of Raquel Hernandez working out her triceps.

Thanks a lot Youtube. Thank you for making me; no, FORCING ME to sit here and watch all of this video. ALL OF IT.

Maybe I should write a letter to Youtube on behalf of everyone who only wanted to find a workout video that would inspire and pump them up for their workout. I mean, how did they think of offering this video when I clearly searched for a workout video that would inspire me?




This is what I searched for in Youtube: “hot women working out” wtf??




Incline Leg Press or Lever Hack Squat??

Lever Hack Squat:


Incline Leg Press:



Which would you rather?

Which EXERCISE, pervs! Well today I did both. 5 sets on the Incline Leg Press Machine and 5 sets on the Lever Hack Squat Machine. This “Lever” machine is different from the other Hack Squat machines in that it does not use a sled that slides up and down in a linear path.

It rotates so that it gives you a more natural movement and works your muscles differently. Remember, every little difference in your workout makes a difference in your body. Change an angle by a few inches and you’re working different muscle fibers, if not different muscles altogether. Always change things up and do different machines or exercises that seem to work the same body parts because they will hit those muscles a bit differently. This will make you more well-rounded and balanced, plus you won’t hit plateaus so easily.


Here’s the Sled Hack Machine in action:


And, then there’s always the sit-down leg press machines. Although they don’t use weight plates, they are still good machines. I use them to warm up since you can’t really add that much weight for a heavy set. Try low enough weight so that you can do 2 sets of 20 reps without reaching your maximum (failure). You’re only warming up, afterall. This Nautilus version is plate-loaded so you can go DAMN-HEAVY:
