Upper Body Workout

Sometimes it’s hard to get to the gym, right? And if I’m all honest with you, sometimes I just don’t want to go to the gym. I might talk myself into a workout DVD or a walk around the block but sometimes I’m just looking to do a quick workout at home with some good music. This is an upper body workout I came up with one day and now it’s one of my favorites:

Upper Body Workout
10 Pushups (they can be girl pushups–on your knees)
10 Triceps Kickbacks
10 Pushups
10 Triceps Kickbacks
10 Upper Back Rows
10 Standing Chest Flies
10 Upper Back Rows
10 Standing Chest Flies
10 Hammer Curls
10 Standing Triceps Dips (extend weights above your head and dip behind your head, bending your elbows)
10 Hammer Curls
10 Standing Triceps Dips
10 Bicep Curls
10 Front Raises
10 Bicep Curls
10 Front Raises
10 Shoulder Presses
10 Lateral Raises
10 Shoulder Presses
10 Lateral Raises

Since you’re only doing 10 reps of each at a time, you should be able to do 2-3 circuits of this whole workout. Also, on some of the curls I’ve done workouts where you balance on one leg to add a balance challenge and to engage other parts of your body.
