Variations of biceps curls, dips and shoulder raises, on the other hand, are my favorite. There’s something I love about feeling the burn in my arms. At Burn Boot Camp they always say, “Learn to love the burn,” and when it comes to upper body training, I definitely have!
In case you haven’t already guessed, today’s workout focuses on the upper body and incorporates both supersets and drop sets. It will keep your mind working and your muscles burnin’. How’s that for a winning combination?
Drop Set Upper Body Workout
To complete this workout, you will first do 10 repetitions of the first exercise, followed by 10 repetitions of the second exercise in the first pairing (Pairing one: Triceps Extensions + Plank Shoulder Taps) before completing 8 reps of both, followed by 6 reps, 4 reps and finally 2 reps.
Then it’s time to move onto the second pairing of exercises and complete them the same way!
Below you will find picture demos and links to descriptions of the above exercises.
- Plank Shoulder Taps (Each Side)
This workout is a challenging one, so while it’s great to keep things moving, be sure to honor your body and rest as needed. You can also add an element of cardio if you wish and incorporate 5 minute of cardio between rounds. Make this workout your own and have fun with it!!
Question of the Day
- When it comes to strength training, what is your favorite muscle group to train?
I love strength training my upper body and focusing on my deltoids has always been my favorite. The shoulder track during BodyPump was always the BEST!
