I have tested our camera a few days ago and tried to take some video while working out. Well, our home is quite small, so it was not easy to set it up. I definitely need a tripod and some extra lighting for
the workout videos. I have already ordered them, hopefully I will get them in the next few days and I can post my videos soon.
Yesterday – late night – I had an amazing workout at home with weights for upper body. Recently I have started to add some weight training to my weekly routine apart from interval training and body weight exercises. Why? I lost some muscle weight by doing too much cardio too often. I like to have a better built upper body, like to see some definition on my arms and shoulders. Having bigger shoulders will make your hip look smaller, and lean, masculine arms are sexy! The summer is here, but it’s still not too late to start some exercises to tone those biceps and triceps.
Today my muscles are sore, but I enjoy the pain, because it means I put a maximum effort in to my workout.
This is the breakdown of my short workout:
1, 4 sets of 5 reps pull ups and chin ups on a chin up bar with different grips. My upper body is not strong I could only complete the first 10 reps without assistance, after that I used a chair for support.
2, 4 set of 10 reps Dumbbell uprigt row
3, 4 sets of 6 reps Dumbbell front shoulder raises
4, 4 sets of 12 reps Biceps curl on / each arm
5, 4 sets of 12 reps of reverse push up in very slow motion
To complete this workout took me approximately 30 minutes ( I forgot to set up my timer).
The picture above was taken 3-4 weeks ago, I am using it as a before photo to compare how adding some weight training to my exercises will take effect.
What did you do today for workout?
