Wednesday Workout: 30 Minute Upper Body & Core Super Sets Workout

Happy hump day, everyone!

Last Monday, I headed to the gym at my office building for a quick lunch time workout. Since I knew I had done a lot of squats and lunges in the class I taught on Sunday and was going to spin on Tuesday, I wanted to focus on the upper body and core to balance things out. I love doing super sets because they keep my heart rate up and they generally leave me pretty sore for a few days after. This workout was no exception- my chest was sore for at least 2 days!

Upper Body & Core Super Sets Workout

As the directions state, you’re going to do 12 reps of exercise A and then 12 reps of exercise B. You’re going to repeat those 2 exercises twice more before moving on to the next set. I alternated from upper body to core rather than doing all upper body and finishing out the workout with core. When I do that, I tend to lose interest and usually cut my workout short. In order to not miss out on the core exercises, I knew I had to do them in the midst of everything else.

Here are some links to some exercises that might need explanations:

*Alternating Wide Grip Rows– Instead of doing both arms at the same time (like in the video), I did right, left, right, left, etc. until I got to 12 on each side

*Stability Ball Pass

*Bicep Curl to Press- Do a bicep curl and then when you get to 90 *, push the weights out in front of you. Repeat.

I think that should be it, but if you have questions, feel free to let me know.

I’ve had a handful of people in my classes recently tell me that they’ve been doing the workouts that I post, which is amazing! You have no idea how good it makes me feel to hear you girls say you actually do the workouts that I shares- thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Questions for you: What exercise/workout format always leaves you sore? Do you tend to lose interest at the end of your workout and end early?

    Love the idea of incorporating the core work – I know that if I save all my core stuff till the end it doesn’t always get done!!!
