Workout Wednesday 27-02-12 – Tank Top Arms

The last few weeks our wednesday focus has been allllll about the legs . . . well guess what . . . ttime to shake things up people.

This week we are going to get ourselves (or start working on getting ourselves) a killer set of tank top arms.

Are you ready?

Oh FYI, you may need to prepare some kind of smoothie (or soup maybe) you can drink through a straw or, pre-book someone to spoon feed you post workout because let me tell you . . . your arms will be heavy.

Like H-E-A-V-Y!

But heavy in the best possible way.

Here’s what we need, a set of weights appropriate for your upper body strength. If you don’t have weights and are just starting out grab yourself a couple of bottles of water or even rice, anything to give yourself some sort of resistance. Also, for the bench press and chest fly’s if you don’t have a bench you can just lay on the floor. No excuses people! You. Can. Do. It!

So as always, firstly we need to warm up for 5 minutes or so. Run on the spot, do jumping jacks, jump rope, dance around the living room, do step ups on the stairs. Anything to get you warm.

Then we get serious.

We are going to perform 8 reps of each exercise (each arm with bicep curls) with a 1 minute rest once all exercises have been done through once. Then we repeat the entire routine through twice more for a total of 3 sets!

Tank top arms, here we come. I would give you a virtual high 5 but can’t. lift. arms 😉

What’s your favourite upper body exercise?
