Yesterday was fun: I did some impromptu personal training at the gym! Someone wanted to learn my killer abs workout, so I got to work up a sweat while helping a random gym goer do the same.
I love sharing anything I've learned while overhauling my health in the last 10 months...and so I thought I'd share with you the upper body workout I'm currently focused on.
All you need is a set of 4-10 lb. dumbbells and 20 minutes to yourself.
Do this workout as a circuit (each exercise right after the other). This saves a ton of time and keeps your heart rate up. After going through the whole set of moves once, rest and get some water, then repeat the circuit.
Try these circuits once a week for 4 weeks as your upper-body strength day, or twice a week for 3 weeks on non-consecutive days if you want to see results more quickly.
Follow up every strength training/weight lifting session with a protein bar/shake/snack within 30 minutes for maximum muscle tone.
