Hope you all had a chance to try out last week’s weekly workout. How did it go? Any thoughts or additions?
This week our focus is more on the upper body. As before, you start with your 50/50 “warm-up” with full-body cardio based exercises then move into the upper body. Complete each full round 2-3 more times for a greater challenge!
- 50 Jumping Jacks/50 Mountain Climbers
- 40 Small Arm Circles (20 each direction)
- 30 Plank Hand Taps
- 20 Triceps Dips
- 10 Push-Ups
Be sure that you continue to focus on proper form with each exercise. As the repetitions increase, we tend to have improper form just to get the prescribed number of reps. The focus is NOT the number of reps but to work each exercise properly. If you find that 10 push-ups are a lot, make a change (i.e. drop to your knees and/or decrease the number of repetitions). If you don’t get all 10, that is OK! You did what your body is ready for and next time you try to do at least 1-2 more. Listen to your body and ALWAYS use proper form.
I’m working on doing some future videos, but until then YouTube is a great resource if you are not sure of an exercise or how to use PROPER FORM (did I mention that enough today, hehe).
Good luck and let us know how it went!
