I’m having a hard time typing this because my arms are so shaky from my work-out – not gonna lie – I love it!!! The 43 really shouldn’t have been hard but I’m trying to push myself by increasing the amount of weight I lift so it was tough.
I just did 43 basic up-right rows. Sounds simple, huh? Start by standing with a dumbbell in each hand palms facing body. Pull weights up to chest height then push them down (like zipping up and unzipping a jacket). I started with 15 pounds in each hand and after 30 reps I had to drop down to 12 pounds to finish the 43. I figured it was much better to finish with a lighter weight than to let my form suffer!!
Hunter offered to do a demo today. I know his right arm isn’t completely in line with his left but it is because he just got his cast off (broken wrist) a week and a half ago and is still trying to strengthen his arm. I love how serious he looks!!!
I was already shaky after the 43 but went ahead and did the rest of my work-out: Chalean Extreme Burn Circuit 2. If you have never done Chalean Extreme, I highly recommend it!!! She focuses on lower reps and higher weights. I went through this program a couple of years ago and it is the first time I really tried to do more than 8-10 pound weights. Now I regularly use 20-30 pounds!!! (therefore, the shakiness while typing)
I’m off to enjoy Fun Friday!!!
