#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).

Lying Leg Press / Machine Squat

 

  1. Adjust the leg machine to a height that will allow you to get inside it with your knees bent and the thighs slightly below parallel.
  2. Once you select the weight, position yourself inside the machine face up with the knees bent and thighs slightly below parallel to the platform. Make sure that the knees do not go past the toes. The angle created between the hamstrings and the calves should be one that is slightly less than 90 degrees (since your starting position requires you to start slightly below parallel). Your back and your head should be resting on the machine while your shoulders are pressed under the shoulder pads.
  3. Place your hands by the handles and position your feet slightly pointing out at a shoulder width position. This will be your starting position.
  4. While pressing with the balls of the feet as you breathe out, make your whole body erect as you squeeze the quads. Hold the contracted position for a second. Tip: Since you are starting below parallel, you can opt to use your hands to help you up by pressing on your thighs only on the first repetition.
  5. Slowly squat down as you inhale but instead of going all the way down to the starting position, just stop once your thighs are parallel to the platform. The angle between your hamstrings and calves should be a 90-degree angle.
  6. Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.

Caution: Keep your lower back and head pressed against the machine at all times.

Variations: You can use a wide or close stance as well.
