Double pulley workout

I love a double pulley machine! They are so versatile for so many workouts! Today I did a quick upper body workout. These are two exercises from my workout.

✴️ Alternating close grip pull down

✴️ Wide grip pull down

Both are great for arm, shoulder and back days!

Ball Raises

This is one of my favorite exercises to do on arm days. It not only works your arms but also your core, butt and legs. Not to mention it builds stability. It’s a little difficult and does take a bit balance so be careful if it’s your first time trying.

Get in a pushup position and put one foot on the ball at a time. Find your balance then raise your hips and pull your knees in to your chest. I typically do 4 x 15. That alone gets my arms and abs burning. 💪🏻

Core Exercises

I love core workouts that aren’t just crunches! Push-up/plank exercises hit your arms/shoulders, core, stability, etc. These are two of my favorite plank exercise variations that I have worked into my shoulder and core days. They aren’t too difficult but they will definitely get your muscles burning! These two are perfect for the gym or at home if you’re lacking in equipment!

1️⃣ Shoulder taps

2️⃣ Plank up downs

I do 20 on each side (ex: 20 taps on left arm, 20 on right) x 4.

Shoulder Workout

Shoulder day! I changed up my shoulder workout last week. These are a few exercises from my workout. They had my arms burning after. I was actually quite bit sore the next day! I love that feeling. 💪🏻

1️⃣ Upright row with rope 4×10-12

2️⃣ Behind back lat raise 4×10-12

3️⃣ Cable front raise with rope 4×10-12 (my right arm burns out around 8-10)

4️⃣ Single dumbbell front raise 4×10-12

Happy lifting 💪🏻💙

Shoulder day exercises

Shoulder day! Here are a few exercises from my shoulder workout this week!

I wish I was one of those people that looked cute when working out. 😂 I make weird faces and pull my neck so I have a double chin sometimes. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Oh well. Whatever gets the job done!

•Front raises 4 x 10 w/ 25lb plate

•Lateral raise 4 x 10 w/ 10lb DB

•Shoulder press 4 x 10 w/ 15lb DB

•Front cable raise 4 x 10 w/ 10lb weight stack

Obviously you can adjust the weight and reps to cater better to your own body. These are just what I am doing for the week! Happy lifting!
