Upper Body Workout; Use your illusion

POWER-set 1:

DB Floor Chest Press, DB Shoulder Press, DB Tricep Kickback & Cable Crunches on BOSU

POWER-set 2:

Chest Flys on BOSU, Front to Lateral DB Raise, Diamond Push-Ups & Kneeling Cable Ab Crunches

Tri-set 3:

Close-Grip Bench Press, Cable Face Pulls, Toe Touches

Shoulder Finisher

12 reps of Front Raise, Front Press, Bus Drivers per side, Military Press & Upright Row

THIS was a really fun workout!!!!

I group 4 exercises for the first 2 sets and called them “POWER-set’s”. I picked one chest exercise, one shoulder exercise, 1 tricep exercise and 1 core exercise. I kept a higher rep range, about 15-25 for each exercise, and did 4 sets of them.

Tri-set 3 was only 3 exercises. I picked Close-Grip Bench press to work both the chest and triceps then selected 1 shoulder exercise and 1 core exercise.

I then wrapped it up with a shoulder finisher, this was killer! Just one set! Burn em’ out!!!

I rocked Guns n’ Roses’ Use your Illusion 2 album today….then Appetite.

Hope you got some exercise ideas!

Have a killer day!

My favorite body area to train is my back, I LOVE back day…

I typically stick to a 12-15 rep range for back day training. In a few more weeks, I’ll lower the rep range and bump the weight to really build strength. Right now I’m just conditioning with some strength work. I’ve been managing SI joint issues and possibly developing arthritis in the lumber region. Since getting back to training after the Spring semester, I’ve really been focusing on stretching in yoga, using hot/cold therapy, using my TENS unit as needed, seeing a chiro, strength training, and I bought a new bed that I am soooo excited for! It’ll arrive end of May =)

Today was a great day for SWEATING it out in the gym because it was rainy, humid, and very sticky = perfect sweat sesh!!! I love it!

Today’s jam was Johnny Thunders radio on Spotify.

Hope you picked up some exercise ideas!

Have a killer day,
