So I’ve been asked to share some more gym routines that I like to do. As some of you may or may not know-I’m a big arm girl. (That sounds awkward…but you get it). Nothing feels better to me then working my arms. Although I could talk about doing pushups and pull ups all day. I have always had a habit of defaulting to things like bicep curls or tricep extensions. I also enjoy workouts that don’t take a lot of items and giant machines. Workouts I could possibly do in my apartment when it’s blizzarding out and bonding with meatheads is less than appealing.
Here is my all-time favorite shoulder and arms workout. I do this entire set 2 times through all with 12 pound dumbbells. Unless stated, I also do 15 reps. I’m not saying this is a perfect routine by any means…just what works for me. Creature of habit I am.
Alternating between bicep and side curls
Dips (maximum reps)
Tricep kick backs
Alternating bicep and side curls
Small weighted circles (I use 5 pounds during this and do 1 minute forward, 1 minute backward-2 minutes through) This should be the most painful thing of the entire set loop
I then do a bit of core just because
2 minute plank
Then do it again! The whole workout takes me roughly 40 minutes or so.
