30 May 45-Minute Cardio, Bicep & Tricep Workout
Welcome to Week 4 of Bikini Bootcamp 2017! Over the next 8 weeks I am going to be posting some of the toughest MFit workouts ever. These videos will all include strength training, fat burning cardio, and stretching. I will be giving away some of my best tips and exercises to burn fat and build muscle. Let’s get swimsuit ready!
In today’s workout, we will start with some total body training, the move into some intense cardio intervals, and finally finish with some bicep and tricep exercises. This workout is going to be perfect for burning fat and sculpting your upper body!
If you are trying to lean down but maintain (or even grow) your muscle. This kind of workout is perfect for you. The blend of powerful cardio movements and slow resistance training will challenge your muscles in an entirely different way!
You will need dumbbells for this workout. And you will see me using a couple different sets of dumbbells. As you start to get stronger and make progress with your training, you want to start lifting heavier weights. If you want your muscles to continue to get stronger, you must continue to challenge them. Today’s resistance training will include some exercises where I ask you to lift as heavy as you can and some lighter movements to help tone and burn out the muscles. The variety will help sculpt your arms perfectly!
