stand/sit arm workout

I have this problem with not doing workouts because I’m pregnant and lazy I don’t have a plan or someone telling which moves to do. This doesn’t exactly work out well for me because then I end up not doing any workout at all…and just running!

Time for things to change.

Yesterday I decided to get off my pity horse and put together an arm workout – no other person required! It honestly took me 5 minutes to come up with. To think, all that avoiding doing a workout at home for nothing!

Hope you enjoy.

* back flat against wall, feet as close to wall as you can get them, arms right by your side pushed against wall, curl up


HOW IT WORKS:

Stand for the first two moves, sit (ie: lie on your back) for the next two moves, stand again for the next two moves, and then back to seated for the last two moves. –> wasn’t well thought out as a pregnant woman though 😛

MAKE IT HARDER:

  • do 10-20 jumping jacks between sets to keep heart rate up
  • add some lower body
    • do deadlift for every bent over row
    • lift and hold your hips in a bridge for flies and pullovers
  • do more than 3 rounds or increase reps or increase weight amount!

For me, this was the perfect transition workout I needed to get back into a routine of doing my own workouts (without over-thinking them!)

I might get adventurous and come up with a leg workout next time, or even better, a combo workout!!

 

Have a great Tuesday!!!

What are YOU doing today to get your workout in?!

    I took a zumba class tonight for the first time in months! It was fun, but I’m really looking forward to my ballet class tomorrow.
