Happy Tuesday Morning!
I cannot believe it is already the END of July. Like next week is August?!! We only have one month left before it’s back to school…….hooray! Haha. There have been some fun, stressful, enjoyable, and exhausting summer moments with these kids. But when it is all said and done, I am thankful to have this time with them when they are young. How was your weekend? I mean, it was 109 degrees here in Dallas over the weekend so there’s that.
Lately all I have is 15 or 20 minutes to get in a workout, especially on the weekends. And doing something is always better than nothing in my book. Anything to get the blood pumping is a win in my book! Plus, when I am short on time, I feel like I can focus and push myself at times better than a full one hour workout.
With that said, today I wanted to share a quick upper body workout you can do at home, in a hotel room, or even at a park! And I guess I have been on an upper body kick lately, haha, so the next workout I share will be lower body focused 🙂
Perform each exercise in the circuit for 1 Minute. And complete the circuit 2x through.
Since you are performing each exercise for a minute, I would suggest slightly lighter weights than if you were doing only 10 repetitions. With this workout we are tapping into your endurance muscles and will really feel that muscle burn! I alternated between 3 and 5lb dumbbells. Check out the links below for video instruction on each exercise.
Wide Biceps (pulse last 10 seconds)
Shoulder Press In and Out (pulse up the last 10 seconds)
Triceps Kickbacks (pulse up last 10 seconds)
Staggered Push-ups (switch arm position)
Easy to follow but I promise a good burn at the end! Happy sweating!
