Upper Body Bootcamp

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Today started off with an amazing Barre class and a huge bowl of oatmeal with blueberries and almond butter! Geezee I love almond butter! After class, I started working on my playlists for today's bootcamp and cycle class. I am super excited about my cycle class tonight! We are going old school all the way!

My bootcamp playlist was pretty fun as well. You can find that over on the playlist page. We had an awesome time in class today, and there were definitely some sweat puddles involved. If you want to try it out yourself, check it out! This workout focuses on the upper body and core.

Let's take a look at the exercises:

TRX Chest Press
 Start with your hands in the TRX handles and arms straight. Make sure your abdominals are engaged and you are in a straight line from head to toe. Bend elbows to lower your chest towards the ground. Straighten the arms to return to a starting position. To increase your resistance walk your feet back so that you are closer towards the ground.


Tricep Dips
Place hands on bench with finger tips facing your body. Bend your elbow and lower your glutes towards the ground. Your elbows should point backwards away from your body. To increase your resistance, straighten your legs.

Stability Ball Plank Tucks
 Start in a plank position with shins on stability ball. Engage abdominals and pull knees to chest. Extend legs back out to plank.


Renegade Rows
Start in a plank position with dumbbells. Pull elbow back past your ribs into a row. Set it back down and repeat on other side.

BOSU Burpees
Start in a plank position. Jump feet to BOSU and then stand up lifting BOSU overhead. Place BOSU back down and jump back into a plank.


Overhead Press Jacks
Start with feet together and weight at chest. Jump out and press weight overhead. Return to start.


I hope you enjoy your workout! Let me know if you give it a try.
