Upper Body Day, 6/1/2012

Ok, we (Ella & I) have a little more time today, so let’s make this one good.  In other words, let’s make this hurt (I’m kidding, relax).  I’m laying off some of the chest exercises for now, to work on building my back strength. More on why, later.

Circuit 1 (four times)

  • Cardio drill:

walking lunges forward (x4)
squat jumps (x4)
walking lunges backward (x4)
squat jumps (x4)

  • assisted pull ups (x10)
  • tricep presses, balanced on Bosu ball, 20-lb dumbbell (x15)

Circuit 2 (four times)

  • preacher bicep curls (x15)
Preacher Curls

Circuit 3 (four times)

  • walking lunges with overhead press, two 15-lb dumbells (x10)
  • mountain climbers on Bosu ball (1 min)
  • upright rows, 30 lbs (x15) – be very careful about increasing the weight on this exercise.  It’s risky — shoulders are so easily injured!
