I don’t share a ton of barbell workouts on my profile on a regular basis because not everyone has access to them or even has the confidence to use one. But lifting a barbell changed my life. For a long ass time all I concentrated on was the weight on the scale. But when I started going to CrossFit, I stopped thinking about my own weight and started concentrating on the barbell weight. I wanted to get better at lifts, to hit new PRs, and i wanted to feel stronger. That barbell changed me forever and I was finally able to break my addiction to weighing myself daily. Any type of working out is empowering, but there is something about lifting a barbell that makes you feel more powerful and confident than you ever thought possible. So if you’re ever thinking about lifting a barbell, but you’re too intimidated, just know it may change your life for the better. Start light, dial in your form, and start concentrating on the barbell weight. Life is way more fun without a scale.

Suggestions of what to use in place of a barbell? Not in the budget to purchase one unfortunately. 😕
Just liked this post like 10x. Never knew how strong I could feel until I started lifting a barbell. ❤️🎉🏋️♀️
@paleomg You mentioned you spend about an hour at the gym....I started doing one-hour strength and conditioning workouts in the morning, and after only two sessions, I’m “wired but tired” and can’t sleep. I know this can be due to increased cortisol and norepinephrine from exercise. The workouts feel intense, but that could be because I’m out of shape. Will this subside soon? And what can I do to get some sleep in the meantime without stopping my workouts?
Solid! Thanks for this workout. Just did it in 30 minutes for a quick Friday afternoon session!
I ❤️ barbell work!! Any chance you’re going to show more of these??
Will there be any barbell workouts included in your program? Love this
So true about lifting a barbell. For the longest time, my scale didn’t even have a battery and I didn’t care. I was the strongest ever
But be so careful! Start with light weight and get help with your form.
🙌🏻 I didn’t realize how much I missed lifting with a barbell until I just watched this workout. Going to do it this weekend!
Women who lift are amazing. 🏋🏼♂️ I love everything about this post. Barbells are empowering for women. Nothing builds strength better which in turn changes body composition. It has been life changing for me and I will never stop 💕
What is the weight of the barbell?
I had to tell you - I included this entire barbell combo into my workout this morning and it kicked my ass and I LOVED it!! I love/hate the split jerk at the end 😅 Thanks for posting this!
