Workout Wednesday - 2.5.2020

Happy Hump Day, loves! 😘 It's halfway through the week and oh what a long week it has been, right? The Monday after Super Bowl should be declared a national holiday. When I had a job, I'd always take a vacation day or I'd call out if I didn't have any more vacation days to use 😂. As a SAHM, I couldn't really have a day off, because kids and school drop off/pick up... but I took a break from the gym. I just couldn't really get my butt out of bed at 5am when my alarm went off.

So Tuesday was my Day 1 of working out this week. The goal is to hit the gym 4 times. Fingers crossed 🤞 that I'm able to keep myself motivated. The weather has been cold here in SoCal (30s-40s) and leavin' a warm and cozy bed to go workout doesn't sound appealing that early in the morning.

I usually start my weeks off with a good leg workout, focusing on glutes and hamstrings. But I changed it up this week and did upper body with a focus on shoulders.

Here is what I did:

1. Seated Dumbbell Shoulder Press x Face Pulls (Superset)

4 sets x 10 reps

2. Seated Arnold Press x Bent Over Dumbbell Fly (Superset)

4 sets x 8 reps

3. Standing Paused Lateral Raise

1 set x 30 reps

4. Single Arm Shoulder Press

4 sets x 10 reps

5. Rear Delt Cable Fly

4 sets x 10 reps

6. Seated Front Raise

4 sets x 10 reps

Also, a lot of these workouts can be done at home, too! With just using dumbbells and resistance bands. If you're wanting to try these workouts at the gym, don't be intimidated to use weights. Trust me, I know what it feels like to go into the free-weights section and not feel confident in what I'm doing. Or feel like I'm being judged by all the gym goers. Just remember, the others around you had to start somewhere, too, you know? And don't feel embarrassed about the weights you're lifting. If you have to start out with 5 lb. dumbbells, it's OK! You WILL feel the burn! 😉

I hope you enjoy these workout posts!
