Upper Body Workout

Hello My Darlings,

I did this super cool upper body workout. The other day I was playing around in my training room and I came up with the coolest new push-up variation. This workout took me under 25 minutes to complete and it was very fun. The third round was the hardest.

I really want to do another challenge if you guys can help me to pick a challenge that would be super cool
:)

Always remember, before you begin to exercise you need to warm-up, follow me along in my basic warm-up routine.  Make sure there is no cracking sound anywhere in your body. Practice your form! I always focus on proper form because I’d rather you do less reps but in good form than more reps with terrible form.  Form is what gives you the results and prevents you from injury.

Workout Explanation

In this upper body workout I was using My Gymboss Timer, a pair of dumbbells 10 lbs each and My Pink Lebert.

This workout is broken down into 2 parts. First part is done for the Proper Form and time. Second part is Interval Circuit – no rest between the exercise.

You will do both parts for the total of 3 rounds.

Watch the workout recap part of the video for the proper form of each exercise and beginners variation.

Part one

Set your timer as stopwatch ( but it doesn’t mean you have to run through your reps with a hump on your back! Keep your back straight, pace your self, every movement needs to be controlled ). There is only one exercise :

  • Acro Push-Ups – 20 reps ( each side counts as one rep )

Part 2

  • Set your timer for 1 interval of 1 minute, 5 rounds total. There are 5 exercises and no breaks.
  • Diagonal Bear Push-up
  • 2 Walk-over and scissor plank
  • Bag Pick-up and Press
  • Split Dips
  • Shoulder Blast Exercise

Remember there is 3 rounds of both parts. Don’t take longer than 1-2 minutes breaks in between.

After this routine I did 3 planks off a chair, 1 min each.
