Upper Body Workout


Hello my Darlings,

I am super exited to present you with another upper body and core workout. This workout was very challenging and it was very fun, I know you guys are gonna love it. The time in which you complete this routine is up to you, also you have a choice to do either 2 or 3 rounds. I did 2 rounds in 23 minutes and 11 seconds, but I didn’t modify any exercise and I did all of my pull-ups unassisted. If you are planning on using assistance in your pull-ups then I recommend you do 3 rounds. I am also on day 2 of Strong Like Susan abs challenge, and I did that after my workout.

As you know this week I am doing ” More Fiber Less Starch Challenge “, and I got to say it’s been easy for me. I normally don’t eat much starch except for my breakfast, but now instead of my baked oats I just have a smoothie, here is my morning smoothie recipe:


Organic Frozen Blueberries – 1 cup

Banana – 1

Organic Eggs – 2

Raw Cacao – 1 1/2 table spoon ( read about the benefits of raw cacao )

I blend all of this together, and 20 minutes before my workout I have a handful of mulberries, this gives me perfect energy without any grain.

Now I will stop yapping and give you the workout explanation :).

Make sure you do a good warm-up, follow me along in my basic warm-up routine.



Workout Explanation


This workout and every workout that we do is meant to be done in perfect form, take your time if you have to, don’t rush because this isn’t a race. It’s all about quality vs quantity, I took my time with every rep. If you feel like you are losing form, stop, take 10-15 seconds break and then proceed further with good form.

All I used in this workout was a Pull-Up bar, a pair of dumbbells ( 5 lbs each ), my gymboss timer and 2 furniture slider things.

Make sure to watch the workout recap part of the video for proper form explanation, it is very important, so don’t be skipping on it.

Set your timer as a stopwatch, I completed 2 of the following rounds, if you are planning to use assistance or modification, I recommend you to complete 3 rounds of the following sequence:


  • The Wheel Push-up Right Side – 8 reps
  • The Wheel Push-up Left Side – 8 reps
  • Pull-ups ( unassisted ) – 3 reps
  • Core Sliders – 10 reps
  • Pull-ups ( unassisted ) – 3 reps
  • Side Shoulder Presses Right Side – 10 reps
  • Side Shoulder Presses Left Side – 10 reps
  • Pull-ups ( unassisted ) – 3 reps
  • Weighted Crab – 30 reps
  • Pull-ups ( unassisted ) – 3 reps
  • Iso Reptile – 10 reps


Make sure to do your stretching after the workout.


Have Fun Training!




PS – I know a lot of you guys ask me where I got my tights, I got them on ebay.
