Circuit Training Upper Body Workout


Hi Everyone,

I am back to torture you some more

. Today’s workout was very simple but it will still be quite challenging. This routine will be focused on the upper body and it’s is a follow up routine to ” HIIT Bikini Ready Body Workout “.

Let me first begin by saying, OMG we filmed the workout outside and it was quite difficult to get a somewhat decent footage. The day started out by me starting my timer and beginning my workout inside, then our sweet little community gardeners

decided it was time go get back to cutting the trees and vacuuming the leaves ( I’m sure you know that noise ). Then our neighbors decided to start playing with their dog who wouldn’t stop barking for 10 minutes straight, of course when you add up 2 gardeners and a dog you can imagine the quality of that sound together.

But we didn’t give up there, we decided to drive to the near by part and just as we got comfy and ready to film, everyone came to play basketball and football, it almost seemed like they were waiting for us to appear. Then of course the plains put inn their two cents and just as we planned on shooting the full length workout, the all those noises of tennis ball, basketballs, screaming and airplanes, I just couldn’t put you through the torture of listening to that video – so I edited

. I know that was a long blah blah!

Anyways, the good news is that after we got home I was able to record workout explanation without interruptions


All I was using in this routine was a pair of dumbbells, my timer, and a brick that I have laying around the house ( I know what you’re thinking – who keeps a brick in their house? I do

). Instead of a brick you can use a stack of books. When I got home I also did 3 sets of back lifts on a balance ball ( I went over that in the explanation video ).

Warm-up – Just Do It ( Check ).  Now I already know what you’re thinking, oh here we go she’s gonna talk about the proper form again

, and yes yes I will.  Proper Form – always keep it, form is always more important then speed!

Workout Explanation


This routine is a circuit training, there is 5 exercises with the 3 rounds total. Set your timer as a stopwatch.


  • Side Jump Push-Up & Oblique Knee Tucks – 20 reps
  • Triceps Kick Backs – 20 reps
  • Shuffle Push-Ups – 20 reps
  • Overhead Circle Shoulder Raises – 20 reps ( watch workout explanation for proper explanation of this exercise )
  • Outward Palms Push-Ups – 20 Reps

After I got home as I mentioned in the video I did 3 sets of back lifts 20 reps each, some moderate jump rope skipping 10 min. ( Moderate cardio after a good workout will help you burn extra fat ).


My time for this workout was 25 minutes and 42 seconds

. I know I was a turtle, I am sure you can beat my time!


Nutrition Tip

- Every time you eat a meal, make sure you have a serving of complete lean protein the size of your palm and a cup of raw veggies. Veggies combined with lean protein help repair muscle tissue faster.
