Fitness Log 2/2 – Upper Body

Let’s Work Those Guns!

Focus on: Biceps, Chest, and Shoulders; One exercise for each part.

Evening workout:

5:30pm- Warm -up Cardio: 20 minutes on treadmill (walk, run, sprint… literally do anything with variable speeds from 4 through 10)

The following workout can be done with a barbell, or dumbbells. Don’t have any? Hold Two Gallons of water by the handle in each hand- don’t have that? … if you happen to have some… cans of paint work very well too (pictured below). Don’t have either of those? You could always use two water bottles but you may have to double your # reps, especially for bicep curls.

 

  • Barbell Bicep Curls Complete 5 sets of 5 reps (20lbs) This works your Biceps. See proper form HERE. (pictured above with paint cans)
  • Wide-Grip Barbell Bench Press Complete 3 sets of 12 (20lbs) This works your chest. See proper form HERE.
  • Dumbbell Overhead Press Complete 3 sets of 15 (2 -8lb-10lb dumbells) Works your shoulders. See proper form HERE.

That’s it!

Again as I’ve mentioned in a previous post, that ‘No Pain, No Gain’ thing is a total LIE. If something hurts, stop immediately and stretch it out! If the pain is prolonged, see a doctor. All you should feel is a nice burn in your muscles.

Much Love,

~Virginia
