It is Day 4 of the #25DaysofMFit and I hope you have been enjoying the workouts so far!
Today I have an upper body workout for you… and boy are your shoulders going to BURN after this one.
This is one of my current favorite workout structures because it will not only burn out your muscles, but it will keep your heart rate up to help with fat burn.
So here is what we will do — I will set a timer for 15 minutes. And then we will go through a circuit of four exercises as many times as we can in those 15-minutes. However, each time you go through the circuit, you will increase the amount of reps you perform the exercises for. I want you to begin the workout by doing 10 reps per exercise, and then the next round add an extra rep and do 11 reps per exercise. Continue adding 1 rep each round until the 15-minutes are up.
You may end up doing a lot of reps of these exercises… so make sure you are choosing an appropriate weight that will allow you to keep proper form but still feel the burn.
Would you rather do the workout on your own, at your own pace? Print out the workout below:
Do the following circuit as many times as you can for 15-minutes straight.
Each time you go through the circuit add an extra rep to each set. Start by doing 10 reps per exercise and then do 11 reps on the next round, then 12, 13, etc… until the 15-minutes are up
Here is the circuit:
1. Hammer curl, bent lateral raise
2. Burpee rows
3. Upright row kickout
4. Weighted squat jumps
Be sure to SHARE this workouts with your friends and give everyone the gift of health this year.
Those burpee rows were SO Hard
AGREED! *evil grin*
