Shoulder workout time! Ryder is getting bigger by the day so I have to keep my upper body strong! That boy loves to be cuddled and held. 😉

These are a few exercises I’ve worked into my shoulder workouts for the next 6 weeks.

🔹Single arm cable pulldown

🔹Shoulder press

🔹Front press

🔹Lateral raise

None of these are too terribly difficult but they do require gym equipment.

Happy lifting!

My favorite upper body workout! These are a few things I do at home or in the gym! They require little to no gym equipment.

🔹Lateral Plank Walk

🔹Plank Rows

🔹Modified Pushups

🔹Plank Taps

These hot only workout your arms but your core as well. 💪🏻

Bosu Exercises

I love to use the bosu ball during workouts. It’s so versatile and it’s an inexpensive piece of workout equipment you can get for home!

These are two exercises I added into my workout routine for the next 6 weeks.

✴️ Pushups

✴️ Hop-outs

These are great for core or upper body workout days!

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 💪🏻💙
