Choose your Hard

9 Jan

In case you were worried I was getting away from the fitness focus of this blog… don’t be 🙂 Writing about workouts and recipes etc. keeps me accountable so, while a few posts may be more related to life in general, moving forward this will still very much be a fitness and health blog.

In that spirit, here’s my arm workout from today:

Focused Warm-up:

  • 2 min rotation plank
  • Mountain climbers
  • Push-ups

2 sets of 12, 1 set of 20 with lighter weight:

  • Curls
  • Lat pulls
  • Row

3 sets of 12:

  • Deadlift to upright row
  • Alternating hammer curls

3 sets of:

  • Hanging leg raises- 15
  • TRX push-ups- 10
  • Squat with ball toss- 20 (I only did 2 sets with the squats)

Skull crushers, 3 x 12

3 sets of:

  • Tricep pull downs x 12
  • Cable curls x8

As a side note, if you’ve never used TRX straps I definitely recommend you start using them in your workouts! Great way to use body resistance and increase difficulty.

    LOVE TRX! Love it so much I’m getting certified at the end of the month. Can’t wait to start sharing the awesomeness that is TRX!
