Upper Body Day, 4/6/2012

My hamstrings are still KILLING ME from Tuesday’s workout, so this Upper Body Day has a little less cardio/legs than it normally would.  Normally, I would keep a lot of leg stuff in there, just to keep my heartrate at a good clip, but my legs are dying.  I will definitely be working in a good long stretch at the end of today’s workout!

You might notice I’ve kept it a bit basic.  Two reasons.  First, I didn’t have as much time as usual to get all creative today.  That’s ok though — it’s good to know I can come up with a pretty decent set of circuits on the fly. And second, it’s Friday!  I want to kill this workout, go home to shower and eat, then out for an awesome show at our local comedy club!

Circuit 1 (four times)

  • bench press, 65lbs (x10)
  • wide-grip lat pulls, 60 lbs? (x15)
Squeeze your shoulder blades together, biotch!
  • inclined sit-ups with arms above your head (x15)

Circuit 2 (four times)

  • squat + shoulder press, two 10-lb dumbbells (x10)
  • body ball pikes (x10)
  • hold a superman pose — lower back (30s)
  • plank (30 s)

Circuit 3 (four times)

  • jumping pull-ups (x6)
  • tricep dips (x15)
Keep your legs straight for added intensity, like this awesome chick!
  • lateral raises (shoulders), two 8-lb dumbbells (x10)


P.S. Everyone wish Kara good luck!  She’s moving tomorrow — with a little help from some friends.  😉
