Arms workout & NEW TIGHTS!

So yesterday we had our first workout back at Golds Gym and it was a doozy… body weight only. It’s always interesting because when people see ‘bodyweight’, they always think ‘oh, that can’t be too hard’ (myself included!!). It gets me every time!!! 


It combined two different workouts that we did when we were at home over the holidays… On their own they were hard enough, but when we put them together… holy smokes! 


But really, I need to talk about those tights for JUST a second.  They are AMAAAAZING! The material is fab, they’re the same style and cut as my absolute fave tights (here), but they’re POLKAAAAAs! I mean, cmon!!! πŸ™‚ They were a gift from my mum-in-law for Christmas and I am in lovvveee.

NOW – on to the workout I did today!

I am loving the Max Workout plan, but the one thing I DO find it lacks a little bit is a focus on arms. You’re definitely toning your arms with the compound workouts the program includes, but I wanted to do a little extra today. Here’s what I did:

Processed with MOLDIV

10 Pull up curls (pictured) 
10 DB hammer curls
15 Stretch Band curls
>> 10 Burpees <<
10 dips (if you’re doing hanging dips do 10 or as many as possible, if you’re doing them on a bench do 15)
10 DB kickbacks
10 tricep press ups 
>> 10 box jumps <<

Rest for 1 minute – repeat x 3-4. (I did this 3x and it took me under 20 mins)

Happy (Almost) Hump Day Y’all!
