Move that body: 3.11-mile run (two walk breaks totaling 0.5 mile)
10-pound weights … arms … next day … ow.
Ow, ow, ow.
Yesterday, I decided to switch up my routine and just use the 10-pounders. It sounded good at the time. Then again, it was about 6:30 a.m. and I might nod my head to anything at 6:30 if I haven’t had any coffee.
I did eight reps of each exercise, going through all of them, before starting the second set – and I did three sets.
- Hammer curl with overhead press
- Tricep kickback
- Bentover Row
- Alternating lateral raise
- Wide-grip bicep curl
- Tricep extension
- Alternating front raise
- Bicep curl
- Wall push-up
It wasn’t too bad – at the time – with the exception of the lateral raise. I suck at those. Probably why I should keep doing ’em. After all, I have just 6.5 weeks to get in baby lifting shape!
If you’re wanna shake things up or looking for a little something different, you know, from people who know what they are talking about, here’s a workout I found at Women’s Health:
I think I might have to add that reverse fly to my circuit! (I also like their idea here – from a different workout – for a twist on the tricep kickback!)
What’s your fave upper body move?
