It’s time for a workout with zero jumping around, can I get an amen? Sometimes it’s nice not to sweat my you-know-what off and just get a serious burn leaving me sore for days.
This workout did just that. I did few exercises but varied the weight and reps. Building muscle is key to burning fat. The more muscle that is on your body, the more fat you will burn and the stronger and more toned you will look. If you want lean muscle definition, then a combination of cardio, resistance, strength training, and most importantly a clean diet is going to be the best for you.
My fitness goals are currently to maintain, but I wuld not be opposed to putting on more muscle. I do HIIT workouts 4x a week along with 2 strength sessions, and 1 rest day, which for some reason has been Tuesday’s lately. Some weeks it’s less, some weeks it’s more. If you make a workout schedule, you feel forced to do it and then you end up resenting it. So my advice would be to listen to what your body is feeling for that day.
Let’s get into this toning and trimming upper body workout!
p.s. I have an upper body workout with no equipment coming soon!
Repeat exercises one after the other – Repeat circuit 4-5x – Finisher: 50 burpees to really burn you out. 🙂
Weights I used for reference:
Round 1 + 2: 20 lb kettle bells (you can use dumbbells, of course)
Round 3: 25 lbs
Round 4: 20 lbs
Round 5: 15 lbs with 5 additional reps
Start at something comfortable to make the most of the entire workout, but remember to challenge yourself!
This workout is great for your biceps & back as well as shoulders! Keep your core tight during the entire workout and don’t forget to let me know how it goes!
all my love,
