#birthdayeve #birthdaygirl #birthstone #coffee #coffeeholic Here are two variations of unilateral lat pull downs. 1– using a cable (can sit or kneel) and 2- using a hammer strength machine (I’m sitting in it sideways 😏) 💪🏾💪🏾 #fittip - I always incorporate single arm and single leg exercises in my workouts whenever possible. .

I am sooo obsessed with even perfect skin and I’m always looking for a product to help me achieve that. 
Fifteen years ago I became a licensed esthetician (skin care specialist) so you would think my skin would be flawless ALL the time— nope 👎🏾 I suffer from random breakouts (in fact right now) and I do my best to treat them. I get regular facials, I exfoliate, drink water, keep my face clean, eat clean and try to limit wearing makeup during the week... but it doesn’t always seem like enough. 
I’ve recently been asked to partner with Fré Skin Care and have been using all three products (facial cleanser, replenishing serum and moisturizer with spf) in the 123Fré line for about a week now and so far I and my skin love it all. 
Since visiting Morocco earlier this year and learning about Argan and the process of extracting Argan oil I’ve wanted to incorporate more of it on my daily life. I was excited to learn that Fré is made of a unique blend of organic Argan oil, Argan leaf water extract and Argan stem cells. Not only is Fré vegan, cruelty free, hypoallergenic and smells ahhhmazing.... with every kit sold, an Argan tree is planted to empower women who harvest Argan in Morocco and fight deforestation.❤️ I would love for you to try it for yourself use my code FITGIRLNIKKI25 for 25% off your 3 month kit (valid for the next 48 hours only).

Dumbbell Squat & Barbell Step Up to Shoulder Press Combo

This is a combination of  exercises, DB Squat, Barbell Step Up and DB/Barbell Shoulder Press. See Below.

DB Squat to DB Shoulder Press

  1. Stand with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart, holding a pair of light dumbbells down by your sides.
  2. Clean the dumbbells up to your shoulders so that one end of each dumbbell rests on top of each shoulder.
  3. Balance the dumbbells on your shoulder by holding on to dumbbells with elbows facing forward. This will be your starting position.
  4. Keeping your head facing forward, your back straight, and your chest high, squat down by bending your hips back while allowing knees to come forward slightly, keeping your back straight and knees pointed in the same direction as your feet. Descend until your thighs are at parallel, or just past parallel to floor.
  5. To return to the starting position, extend your knees and hips until your legs are straight.
  6. On the way up, extend your arms above your head
  7. Repeat for the recommended number of reps.

Barbell Step Up to Barbell Shoulder Press

  1. Stand up straight while holding a barbell in front of you at your collarbone and stand upright behind an elevated platform (such as the one used for spotting behind a flat bench). This is your starting position.
  2. Place the right foot on the elevated platform. Step on the platform by extending the hip and the knee of your right leg. Use the heel mainly to lift the rest of your body up and place the foot of the left leg on the platform as well. Breathe out as you execute the force required to come up.
  3. As you ascend, press the barbell over your head.
  4. Step down with the left leg by flexing the hip and knee of the right leg as you inhale. Control the barbell on the way down, returning to the original standing position by placing the right foot of to next to the left foot on the initial position.
  5. Repeat with the right leg for the recommended amount of repetitions and then perform with the left leg.

Variations: Just like lunges, this exercise can also be performed by alternating between the right and the left leg every time until all repetitions have been performed for both legs. Also, dumbbells can be used. Beginners can start with only the bodyweight, especially if they have balance issues.
