I am finally getting around to another workout post and today I am focusing on the upper body. I am using 8 pound weights with a bunch of these workouts below, but I should most definitely be using 10 pounds by now, I just don't have those at home yet. It's super important to remember your upper body when working out and not just skipping this all the time, like I used to haha! I used to be a legs, butt, and cardio girl only, but now I see the value of working that upper body too! As a girl I used to be worried that lifting and doing weights was going to make me bulk up, but man was I wrong. If you're worried about getting too bulky, simply don't use heavy weights, I have found (and learned) that if you lower the weight and do lots of reps, you will begin to see tone in those arms and a transformation of your whole body. For most of these exercises below I am doing about 3 sets of 20 reps. If this is too much or too little just adjust accordingly. The beauty of working out is the ability you have to tailor it to your body, your stamina, and how you are feeling that day. Be consistent, I have found that helps me the most, is a solid consistent routine and effort. I really hope this helps and answers some of the questions you may have had! Have a happy Monday!
