Extreme Upper Body Shaper (home workout)

Hey! I’ve been getting a lot of requests for workouts that target specific muscle groups. So I’ve created a couple of circuits that will definitely push you beyond your limits and give you the amazing results you want. All you have to do is stick with these workouts. Whatever you do, don’t give up. Push through the burn. Wipe off the sweat with a towel. Pop a few Advil if you get too sore.

I get a lot of compliments on my arms, and for my body type they are the hardest to shape. Staying consistent with the exercises and using heavier weights that really challenge me are my secret. I know a lot of women who are misinformed on weight training. When they say, “I don’t want to get bulky so I don’t use heavy weights,” I always cringe. There is absolutely no possible way for a woman to bulk up without the use of extra curricular things like steroids or overuse of hormonal therapy. Feel free to do your own research. It’s a scientifically proven fact. So don’t be afraid to go heavier with weights and really push yourself. I promise you the results you get will be worth all that hard work 😉

How’d you do? Were you able to keep up with me or beat my times?

Vitamin DPS: Do you struggle with depression and/or anxiety? You could totally be deficient in Vitamin D! Low levels of it have been linked to anxiety, depression, and fatigue. Be mindful that a lot of people have issues with absorption, especially if you suffer from GI issues like IBS or are taking antacids. Having a quality (triple inspected) highly absorbable Vitamin D—like Isotonix—is imperative. You get what you pay for with supplements. Period.

I always try to view my health as an investment, not an expense.
