Show Me Your Strength Upper Body Workout Challenge
Hello my Sweeties,
Today I have a monster Upper Body Workout Challenge! Get ready, because this one is going to be tough mentally even more than physically, all though physically it’s just as hard! This was a total out of the blue inspiration for me, I wanted to do something hard and something that I don’t do often. There is 4 exercises total, 1 of them is a combo and I timed each exercise separately. I always recommend you guys to do the same, that way you’ll be able to tell which exercises are your strength and which is your weaknesses.
For all the Newbies to Loving Fit
If you are new to Loving Fit I recommend to check out ” Creating Your Workout Plan ” post. There you will be able to see how I put together my routines, and you can find something for your own fitness level. My philosophy is: Form is always more important than speed, so WATCH YOUR FORM!
Things to remember before, during and after your workout
Workout Challenge Explanations
All I was using in this workout was 2 chairs, my Gymboss Timer and a Pull-Up bar. You can do each exercises in sets of as many as you can, just make sure you are not running through the exercises but doing each rep with awareness of the proper form.
Set your Gymboss Timer as a stopwatch, and reset it after each completion of all the reps.
- Elevated Twisted Push-ups – 100 reps
- Elevated Tic Tock Shoulder Presses – 100 reps
- Squat to Pull-up and Knee-kick-ups – 50 reps
- Jump Crab Kicks & Push-Off Combo – 50 reps ( each sequence of 3 jump crab kicks, turn to press, walk to push-up position, lower down, push-off, walk back and turn back – counts as 1 rep )
Beginners will cut all of the reps in half. I gave a couple of variations in the video so I suggest you guys pick a variation that fits your own level best.
Elevated Twisted Push-ups – 10 min 13 sec
Elevated Tic Tock Shoulder Presses – 11 min 07 sec
Squat to Pull-up and Knee-kick-ups - 10 min 12 sec
Jump Crab Kicks & Push-Off Combo – 16 min 44 sec
Have a wonderful weekend my Lovies!
