Upper Body Workout


Hello my Lovies,

I am back to torture you a lot :). I have a new upper body circuit training workout for you and this routine really kicked my arsie. In this routine I really focused on the shoulders and back, but of course some triceps and core were involved as well.

At first, I was thinking ah no problem I am going to do 5 rounds of this routine, but after the first round I realized that I bit more than I can chew and had to finish with 3. This workout took me 30 minutes and 12 seconds to complete and I finished it off with 10 minutes of light cardio.

Please Please Pleas never skip your warm-up and your stretching after, it is just as important as a workout it self. Warming up your muscles will prepare your muscles to work to their full potential as well as prevent injuries. Stretching is important because it helps your muscles heal faster and relieve soreness.

Make sure you watch the workout recap part of the video for proper form explanation, as I always tell you video can be deceiving and you need to know the proper form of each exercise.



Workout Explanation


In this routine I was using my Gymboss timer, a pair of dumbbells ( 14 lbs each, my new addition to my equipment family ), 2 furniture sliders, my pink toy Lebert , a brick for assistance with pull-ups and my Pull-Up bar.

Set your timer as a stopwatch. There are 6 exercises and 1 combo. I completed 3 rounds of the following sequence but if you’re daring you can go for the 4th round.


  • Sliding Shoulder Push-ups – 12 reps ( don’t rush in the exercise )
  • Overhead Press – 12 reps
  • Upright Row – 12 Reps
  • Dips with knee raises – 12 reps
  • Bent Over Row – 12 reps
  • Assisted Wide Grip Pull-Ups – 12 reps
  • Push-Off, Jump Forward and Roll Over Combo – 12 reps


Have a great training day!
