Workout of the Week: Sexy Shoulder Sculptor

Don’t you want shoulders that SCREAM sexy?

Today’s workout will get you on track for just that!

We’ve got curls, planks, “I” raises, “L” raises, and burpees, all designed to tone your shoulders to perfection. There’s also one piece of equipment we’ll be using today that really brings the burn to your shoulders…battle ropes!

Battle ropes are these long ropes that you can slam, shake, and even whip. The ropes aren’t light, so you’ll need your shoulders to get them off the ground and moving.

There will also be a few resistance band and dumbbell exercises to add even more kick to this workout!

Let’s hop into this one! Can’t you feel those new shoulder muscles already?

Workout of the Week: Exercise Buddies Unite!

What’s better than getting in killer shape?

Getting in killer shape with a friend!

This partner workout is designed to give you and your buddy a high intensity, fat burning work out – at the same time!

Here’s how it works:

These workouts will have 30 second work intervals followed by 5 seconds of rest/transition intervals.

Partner #1 will do as many reps as they can in the Primary Movement, and Partner #2 will hold the Secondary Movement for as long as they can. So if Amy is Partner #1, she will do as many squat jacks as possible; while she’s doing that, Sarah will be holding a plank for 30 seconds. Then both partners will switch.

Workout of the Week: The Burpee Sandwich

Ooooh… a burpee sandwich!

What in the world is that?!?

Uh, only the best way to order your burpees, of course!

In all seriousness, burpees are instant fat burners for a reason. They get your heart pumping, yet they also engage your arm and leg muscles.

Now before you jump into the gym and start knocking burpees out until you collapse, here me out for a sec…

Burpees are BEST done when combined with other exercises. Since they check a lot of boxes already, you’re free to mix them in with almost any workout routine you typically do.

Here’s one we’re calling the burpee sandwich, and inside is a patty made of planks. Hmm, maybe we should trademark all this…
