I’m a bit excited about today’s post. That’s because it’s the first of its kind*
Who’s up for some workout inspiration!
I hope you’ll find the workouts helpful – I plan to post a lot more, I just need to fully get a hang of shooting pictures alone and editing. Feedback would be appreciated 🙂
*Well, if you look away from the guest post I did on Cupventure. Which you should totally check it out!
Now, let’s look at the workout – that’s what you’re here for right?
Oh. You thought there’d be cookies… well… I have some bad news for you. I might accidentally have eaten all of them. Sorry. I’m not really sorry, they were delicious!
This is a workout with some of my favorite dumbbell exercises, and it can easily be done at home. An alternative to dumbbells could be water jugs or books. My dumbbells weigh 3.5 kg / 8 lbs each, so that’s what I’m using. If you’re at the gym, choose a weight you find challenging for each exercise.
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND
ARNOLD DUMBBELL PRESS
At the bottom, with your arms next to your torso, your palms should be facing your body. As you press the dumbbells up, rotate until your palms face forward. Full description
RENEGADE ROW W/ PUSH UP
Hands shoulder width apart, holding the dumbbells and do a push up. The further apart your legs are, the easier it is to avoid rotating your upper body. Focus on keeping your hips square to the ground and your core engaged. Full description
Curls for the girls. (No you’re not going to get massive arms from doing this). Full description
Keep your upper arm and torso parallel to the floor. Focus on moving your forearm only. Slowly lower the dumbbell. Full description
This is just inspiration, feel free to modify the workout so it suits your current level.
