Ready? Yeah – I thought you might say that… LET’S DO THIS!
30 seconds of little arm circles; 30 seconds of big arm circles (just to get the blood flowing to your muscles in your upper body)
Great way to get in a little fat-melting cardio with our strength-training! Do them with a light (1-2 pounds tops) dumbbell to make it burn a little more!
2. Alternating Military Press – 1 minute
Perform a military press, but you only push one dumbbell at a time towards the ceiling. When it gets back to the starting point beside your ear then it’s the other arm’s turn
3. Lateral Deltoid Raises – 1 minute
Keep your palms down, your shoulders down (keep them out of your ears – the tendency is to shrug with this one), and use your deltoid to pull the weight up to shoulder height. Slowly return to starting position.
4.Upright Row – 1 minute
Stand erect holding the weights in front of you, palms towards your hips. Use your shoulders/upper back to pull the weights up above your chest (elbows out to the side). Slowly return to starting position.
5. Bent-Over Reverse Fly – 1 minute
Keep your core and butt tight; hinge forward at the hips (don’t round forward at your spine). Start with the weights in front of you hanging down towards the ground. Keep your stomach tight and your arms straight as you use the back of your shoulder (deltoid) to pull the weights out to the side and up towards the ceiling. Slowly return to starting position.
Because I’m not a complete sadist! Take 60 seconds to stretch and recover and then jump back in it with jumping jacks.
Perform this circuit of these 6 exercises 3 times total. You’re going to be burning by the end but you have to stay strong and push through it! You’ve got this!! AND THEN…
Sleek and sexy shoulders are sure to be coming your way in no time!
