Good afternoon, my friends. I hope your Monday is going well so far!
My mom will be arriving in town soon and I’m excited to have a visitor for a few days! She was in Pennsylvania with my grandma and aunt this weekend as they officially sold my grandma’s house (<— lots of emotions going on related to that one) but I am excited she’ll be swinging by our house on her way back to Florida!
I’m hoping to show her around a little bit today, grab dinner out somewhere tonight and then possibly take a Jazzercise class or something tomorrow morning. I’m ready for some quality mother/daughter time!
But for right now, I’m here to share a back to basics arm workout with you guys! I actually put this quickie workout together when I was in Boulder two weeks ago. I wanted to sneak in some strength training at the hotel gym one morning and since my time was limited, I decided to concentrate on my biceps, triceps and shoulders.
Back To Basics Arm Workout
Links to demos of some of the exercises:
- Dumbbell Overhead Press
- Tricep Push Ups <—We do these in Pure Barre all the time and they’re killer!
- Bicep Cross Body Curls <— Is this Katrina from Tone It Up!? It looks just like her!
This workout is the kind of strength training I find myself doing when I want to do something simple that only requires a set of dumbbells. (I actually did it again at home this weekend as I finally wrapped up Orange is the New Black.) It’s a great at home workout option for those of you out there who may be looking for a quick arm workout you can do in your living room!
A quick note for those who may not be familiar with trisets: During the BONUS round, you’ll complete a triset which is similar to a superset but with three exercises instead of two. To complete a triset, you’ll perform three different exercises one after another, without any rest in between.
