Sarah may have pushed me a bit during swimming. Oh, and the kettle bells during weight workout class before that were fun as well. Consequently, this morning I am loving life despite the early hour due to going to bed early because I couldn't handle another round of debates
Happy Foreign Language Friday!
Since here in the good old state of Michigan tank top season is officially over, I figured it would be the perfect time to discuss the exercises you can do to get monster guns. (Timing? I have it.)
|Where you at, Jillian Michaels? guns.|
|Warrior Dash guns a.k.a. Muddy guns.|
I realized as I was flipping through my workout logs that upper body exercises have the weirdest names. Tricep kickbacks? Chest flys? Cable rows? How in the world can you follow the lovely circuit workouts offered on Pinterest if you don't know what these things are?
|I picked this girl because even though|
she is doing one arm at a time instead
of two like me, her butt
looks fantastically just like mine.
These sadly have nothing to do with your boobs sailing through the air. Or taking a trip on an airplane. Whatever. Way to get our hopes up, inaptly named chest exercise. Chest flys work *surprise* your chest. They target your pectoral muscles, but also work your triceps and shoulders, so, bonus.
|See the rainbow? (Which just made me think|
of Skittles, even though their slogan was Taste
the Rainbow. Sugar, it's like you're stalking me.
There are probably a billion versions of this move you can do. I might be exaggerating a titsch, but for real, you can take some liberty with this move because you can do it seated, standing, bent over, with dumbbells, with a barbell, on a standing machine, on a seated machine,
Pick some weights that have some heft to them, but not so much heft that it messes with your form or posture. It should feel comfortably uncomfortable. Get it? Now here are some choices:
The standing row looks like this. Keeping your weights in front of you, tuck your tummy in and raise 'em up. Slowly lower them back down. Do this twelve times total. Rest. Rinse and repeat. Twice.
Attack those guns, ladies! You officially have all winter long to develop some amazing guns, so by summer I'm ready to be blown away by your buffness (totally a word).
Have a great weekend! See y'all Monday!
