Wednesday Workout: 7 Minute Body Weight Upper Body Burner

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: this summer has been insanely busy! So busy, in fact, that it’s cut into my workout time… the horrors! 😉 What do you do when you have limited time to workout? You pick some exercises that only require body weight and get busy! I did this workout the other day and was pleasantly surprised by how much it challenged me.

There’s nothing fancy, but it’s upper body focused so I like to use it as a finisher after a leg-focused workout like running, stair runs, biking, etc. But, if you’re just looking for a cardio-free workout that focuses on your upper body, do this workout 2, 3, or 4 times through and you’ll surely be feeling it by the end!

I videoed it for you, but I will warn you- the video quality is really only sub-par. I need to figure out a better way to film my workouts for you guys! Also, it looks like I’ve got terrible form and constantly lifting my left hip, but it’s just an illusion: my iPad was on the floor and angled up to get my whole body, which in turn made it look like I was always lifting my left hip! Keep them as flat as you can when you do it 🙂

And, if you’re at work and can’t watch a video- or- just don’t feel like watching it and working out along with me, here’s the workout in written form- enjoy!
