Upper Body Workout

 

Hello my darlings

:)
,

I am back with another upper body killer workout routine!!!  So happy to see that Loving Fit community is growing every day, you guys are so wonderful and supportive I feel truly blessed!

Just a year ago when I started this blog I only dreamed that someday I will get to meet people from different places around the world and we can share our love for health and fitness.  Today I am living this dream thanks to you guys and this is the most precious thing a person can have, to do what they love and share it with others.

As you know I went through a pretty crazy 2 weeks, I haven’t stressed like that in a while and as hard as it was I stayed positive the whole time.  I pushed through my workouts even though my mind wanted to give up.  I knew in my heart that this was a big lesson in my life. When life gives us problems we need to look for lessons within, once we recognize these lessons things will get even better, thats what I always teach others and this was my time to prove it.

 

Now let’s get all the mental strength we need, let’s do a good warm-up, let’s practice the proper form in front of the mirror and let’s workout!!!
 

 

Workout Explanations

 

In this routine I was using my timer, a pair of dumbbells ( 10 lbs in each hand ) and 12 lbs medicine ball ( don’t worry if you don’t have the equipment, I show you variations in the video ).  This workout is split in 2 parts, both parts are circuits and you will do these circuits for proper form first, time second.

 

Part one

 

Set your timer as a stopwatch.  There is 10 rounds of the following combo.  I would like to warn you right away, this is a tough combo because I am using a different push-up variation, and if you are struggling to do all 10 rounds, just do 6-8 rounds instead.

 

  • Palm Outward Dynamic Push-up – 8 reps – Roll Over – Push-Off- Mountain Climbers using a tempo – 10 reps ( the whole thing counts as one round, I completed 10 ).

 

Part 2

 

Set your timer as a stopwatch.  There are 5 exercises with one of the done on both sides.  I completed 2 rounds, if you are brave enough you can go for 3 rounds.

 

  • In & Out Catch – 20 reps
  • Neutral Grip Pull-Ups ( assisted on the way up, UN assisted on a way down ) – 10 reps
  • Fancy Push-Up – 8 reps on each side
  • Bird Back Lifts – 15 reps
  • Shoulder Raises – 15 reps

 

After this routine I practiced my dips, my goal is to do at least 10 without assistance, right now i can only do 6.  The trick to practicing dips is quite simple:  Assist your self on the way down then pick up your legs and try to push your self back up.

I also did 10 minutes of skipping and 5 min of stretching.

 

My time

 

Part 1 – 15 min 21 sec

Part 2 – 13 min 43 sec

 

Nutrition Tip:

Today’s nutrition tip is to look for hidden sugar on your food labels.  A lot of times we think that by buying something fat free or sugar free is actually better, but it’s worst, much worst.  When we are buying fat free produce it means it’s been processed and tons of sugar has been added to make it taste edible, just check your label and you will see what I mean.  Same goes for sugar free things, everything that is labeled sugar free has artificial sugar added to it, and that is pure chemicals that work against our bodily functions.

Every Friday I write an article on EvilCyber.com, todays article was about Low Fat & Sugar Foods, so check that out

PS – I was having some technical difficulties with the video so it came a whole day and a half later.

 

Have a wonderful weekend darlings!
