LOOK AFTER YOUR BODY IT’S THE ONLY ONE YOU’VE GOT
PART 2 - Tone and strengthen the Upper Body
Following on from the leg exercises last month, it's time to get the upper body working out. This challenge adds some simple yet effective strength training exercises into your life. No need to set aside loads of time to do them. No need to spend time travelling to the gym or membership fees. With just a little motivation you can do all you need to at home.
These exercises are simple to do, functional and designed to fit into your day very easily.
August’s exercises do involve some additional equipment, some weights but if you do not have any then do not worry with a little improvisation you can quite easily use items you have around the home.
For some ideas on items you can use check out my earlier blog No Weights No Problem.
Upper Body Workout
This month do the daily exercises for as many reps as you can in one go, it might be 10, 15, 20, 25 whatever number you can reach without losing form.
Make the exercises it fit into your day however you can.
25 repetitions of the exercise, rest for 30 seconds and repeat 3 to 5 times. Do that once a day or 2 to 3 times depending on how it feels and what time you have. Your body, your workout. Contact me if you have any questions.
Note: remember to stretch the areas of your body which you workout at the end of each day.
