Dumbbells Only-Upper Body Workout
High Reps-Low Weight
FEEL THE BURN🔥🔥🔥
Some of you might know, I have been trying to let my groin tendon heal, due to it being inflamed and irritated, hence no leg workouts of late. This is the first workout I have done in about 5 days, and to add to my pain I pulled a back muscle or something so I stuck with light weight and tried not to use my back too much in any of these movements! Soooo if you are getting over an injury or have some tightness make sure to listen to your body and don’t over do it! Stretch stretch stretch stretch stretch!!!! I did about 20min of stretching before leaving my house and then did about 20min of moderate cardio on the arc trainer (not treadmill) to make sure I was nice and warm before starting any movements! .
Front lateral arm raises
Bent Tricep extensions
Neutral grip bicep curls
Reverse grip Front Arm Raises .
I like to do my high reps pretty fast, but still controlled! No swinging weights, but keep the lance up to get your heart heart up! .

We categorize push exercises within two categories: horizontal push or vertical push. Both have their place and one isn’t superior to the other. Both are important and target different muscles through different ranges of motion. Ideally, you’d program exercises in both categories into your training, however there are some cases where one would be preferred over the other.⠀
First, what is a push exercise? It’s any exercise where you’re pushing a force away from the body. Push exercises generally target the chest and shoulder muscles. ⠀
The category of horizontal or vertical describes the position of the arms in relation to the torso. ⠀
*️⃣ If you push the arms and they’re perpendicular to the torso, it’s a horizontal push. ⠀
*️⃣ If you push the arms and they’re parallel to the torso, it’s a vertical push. ⠀
Horizontal push exercises only required 90 degrees of shoulder flexion. Whereas vertical push exercises require closer to 180 degrees. So, horizontal push exercises are going to be the best option for people who have past shoulder injuries, past shoulder surgeries, bony blocks/abnormalities, or shoulder pain with overhead motions. ⠀
If you have healthy shoulders with good range of motion, then I recommend programming a good balance of horizontal versus vertical push exercises. ⠀
For more info and to see some examples, checkout my latest blog post on BeautifultotheCore.com (link in bio). ⠀
Tomorrow, I’ll be sharing more on this topic - like how to improve shoulder mobility. So stay tuned!
Since it’s Valentine’s Day, it’s only fitting that I have a guest appearance by the world’s best husband on my IG today. I think the saying goes, the couple that frog thrusts together, stays together. Is that right?⠀👫
So we were at the gym and hubby got this great idea to try this setup for frog thrusts. It actually worked out really well! It’s a great way to load a little more weight for frog thrusts and pretty comfy too. ⠀🐸
To set this up, place an incline bench under the smith machine bar. Then put a squat sponge on it for comfort. Lower the bar so there’s just enough space for your thighs to slide under it as you step into it from behind. Then un-rack it, and you’re good to go!⠀
Feel the burn. Try 3 sets of 15-20. ⠀
for being the most handsome and supportive hubby ever. 🥰
I had to share this exercise combo that I learned from @strengthcoachtherapy
because I absolutely loved it and how it works all three glutes!!⠀
1️⃣ Neutral stance to work glute max⠀
2️⃣ Feet together knees out to work glute med⠀
3️⃣ Wide stance to work glute min⠀
*️⃣ Tips: Do a posterior pelvic tilt at the top to engage the glutes more. Keep tension out on the band the entire time. Tuck the chin to the chest. ⠀
Try 3 sets of 10each for a great booty burn! ⠀
