#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).

Flat Bench Press

 

  1. Lie back on a flat bench. Using a medium width grip (a grip that creates a 90-degree angle in the middle of the movement between the forearms and the upper arms), lift the bar from the rack and hold it straight over you with your arms locked. This will be your starting position.
  2. From the starting position, breathe in and begin coming down slowly until the bar touches your middle chest.
  3. After a brief pause, push the bar back to the starting position as you breathe out. Focus on pushing the bar using your chest muscles. Lock your arms and squeeze your chest in the contracted position at the top of the motion, hold for a second and then start coming down slowly again. Tip: Ideally, lowering the weight should take about twice as long as raising it.
  4. Repeat the movement for the prescribed amount of repetitions.
  5. When you are done, place the bar back in the rack.

 

Caution:

If you are new at this exercise, it is advised that you use a spotter. If no spotter is available, then be conservative with the amount of weight used.

Also, beware of letting the bar drift too far forward. You want the bar to touch your middle chest and nowhere else.

Don’t bounce the weight off your chest. You should be in full control of the barbell at all times.
