Quickie Arm Workout and Friday Faces

Hi everyone!



TGIF, amiright?! What a week. So long. So crazy. So ready for the weekend.

I am feeling so incredibly blessed this week. My HuffPost blog recieved over 1300 “likes”, and I received emails from readers all over the world, including Australia(!), with such nice things to say. Whew!  Incredible! Any suggestions about my next post? Any specific workout tips/ideas that people are looking for? Please let me know!

Since March continues to be insanely cold and awful, Chris and I have been regularly sleeping through our morning alarm and working out in the evenings instead. The gym is always super crowded in the evening, which is a bummer, but we do our best not to monopolize too many items and not comment on all the meat-heads with horrible form taking selfies on the squat rack (ughhhhh). Anyway, last night we did the follow bicep/tricep/shoulder workout. It was a quickie, but definitely effective.

Warm up 5 minutes on the treadmill with a slight incline. All circuits are 3 sets of 8-12 reps with 1 minute rest between. Finisher is 3 sets of 10 reps/each with minimal rest between sets (~10 seconds).

Set #1: Barbell Curls, narrow bench press, upright row

Set #2: Hammer curls, lying tricep extension, lateral raise

Set #3: Incline curls, twisting kickbacks, front raises

Set #4: Cable hammer curl, cable overhead extension, cable high row

Finisher: 10 pushups, 10 high plank/low planks

Check out my “Better Sore Than Sorry” TJ Maxx find! So silly. Also, my faces during this workout just look disgusted…guess that’s just what I look like at the gym…

That’s really all I got today. No news is good news around here 😉
