This afternoon I bring to you another edition of Yesterday’s Workout. Although, in this particular case we’re talking about yesterday’s yesterday’s yesterday’s (Saturday) workout. Blah blah blah, details. Whatever.
Here is a quick, 20 minute upper body workout, focusing on the arms and shoulders. I did this workout Saturday morning at the gym, but it could easily be done in the comfort of your own home. What you’ll need: A set of hand weights (the heavier the weights, the harder the workout; the lighter the weights, the easier the workout) and a chair or something sturdy to lean on during the triceps dips. Instructions: Start with Round 1, complete 12 reps of each exercise, and repeat the entire round 3 times before moving on to Round 2.
(Proper form is important. Reference links provided below.)
As I mentioned, this was a Saturday morning workout (or as I like to call it, an SMW). SMWs are my favorite because there’s plenty of time afterward to make a big recovery breakfast. And that is exactly what the Mister and I did. Haha, Mister.
Breakfast scramble featuring broccoli, zucchini, potato, onion, and raw cheddar. Multigrain toast & bacon on the side. One of my favorite meals.
Question: What’s your favorite post-workout meal? Mine is either a breakfast scramble or an acai smoothie from Rainbow Acres.
