Workout Wednesday- Upper Body Circuit

Since last week I focused on legs, today’s workout is going to be all about the upper body. Because this is a smaller muscle group, I like to keep the tempo up to help increase my energy expenditure. With that being said, this workout should be done in a circuit, so try to keep the rest time low between exercises!

Warm up: walk on treadmill (5 mins) and stretch

Workout: I used an 8lb dumbbell for the entire circuit, only putting them down at the end for abs.

CIRCUIT 1

12 Arnold Press 

In a static lunge position, complete the circuit: reverse fly, row, triceps kickback (10 reps)

Biceps curl into lateral raises (10 reps) – the weight was a little light for my biceps curl so I did a few more repetitions at the end till they were fatigued. 

Back into the static lunge with the opposite leg, complete the same arm circuit: reverse fly, row, triceps kickback (10 reps)

Back to the biceps curl and lateral raise set (10 reps) 

Abdominal exercise of choice: I did leg raises with a lift at the top

Repeat 2 more times


CIRCUIT 2

10 pull-ups on assisted machine (I did 5 wide grip and 5 curl grip)

10 push-ups on BOSU ball

45-60 second plank on BOSU ball

repeat 2 more times


DONE! 

Happy Hump Day,

Amanda

  • Found the perfect striped tee to layer under all your Fall vests (on sale for $12 online only). I sized up to a M for the perfect fit. I’ve bought multiple options for this popular button skirt trend and this one is the keeper! It feels way more expensive than it actually is...all the others felt so cheap! Have you picked one up for the season? I’ve been loving skirts this Fall!

  • My Monday was made hearing the news about Harry and Meghan, anyone else?! I can’t wait to see how gorgeous their baby will be! This look is something I wear all the time throughout Fall.

  • Celebrating two years together today 💕 
@shelbyraephotographs captured these photos for our one year anniversary at the same venue we got married. If you’re contemplating doing an anniversary shoot... I highly recommend it! I went all out and did a DIY floral bouquet (that I held the entire drive worried they would tip over, brought our cake topper hoping it wouldn’t melt in the car, and our vows to re-read to each other. You can see the full recap on Strawberry Chic 🍓(search One Year at the top right corner)

  • I am having the best time @hotelatavalon tonight with Tim celebrating our two year Anniversary 💕 I can’t wait to share what we’ve been up to on stories a little later. Also, where have facials been my whole life?? Sunnie @woodhouseavalon taught me so much about my skin today and shared tips I never even thought of that can be causing acne. I’ll definitely be sharing some of my tips with y’all soon on Strawberry Chic if they work for me. I hope y’all are having the best weekend enjoying this Fall weather 💕. Swipe right to see the cutest little bow detail to this sweater.

  • Happy Friday Friends! Welcoming the Fall weather with the windows open in the John household. Why does the Fall air feel more refreshing and clean?? 🤷🏼‍♀️ I went ahead and ordered another color in this slim puffer vest on sale under $20. I live in them at work because I’m always cold but it doesn’t restrict me from working on patients. My ruffle sweatshirt is part of a sale on sale and under $25. It’s made a second appearance on my feed so you know it’s good and it will go fast💕.
