Complete Fitness @ Home: W4W2

Get ready to feel those arms!!! Today’s workout doesn’t only focus on arms, but it was a bit of a challenge for me…I have weak arms.

Let’s take a look.

Week 4 Workout 2

As you can see, we have a few new moves that we are incorporating. Here are a few videos to help you determine what you will do:

Dips: This is the type of dip I do, but I just use a dining room chair. If you find this to be too much of a challenge, try bending your knees and bringing your feet in closer to you before you begin.

Thrusters: I had to use the baby thruster video here. I did not use Cam for this exercise, but I used two heavy books and pushed them over my head in a press.

Steps: All you need is a stair or something you can step up on. You can even use the chair you completed your dips with. Alternate legs stepping up and extend leg fully at the top. If you don’t alternate, you will have a sore leg tomorrow. I just used my stairs and stepped up to the second one each time.

Kettle Bell Swings: Ugh, you guys, I couldn’t find a video I liked for this one. I extend my kettle bell swings over my head and none of the videos I watched did. Also, you don’t have to have a kettle bell to complete this exercise, just find something with a little weight that you can hold easily with both hands on one end.

When I did this workout, I counted the mountain climbers as one after both legs made the required movement and I completed the steps as 30 for each leg each round. My kettle bell swings were done using a 25 pound kettle bell.

This one took me 38:42 to complete the two rounds and I burned 299 calories.

Surprisingly, I don’t feel too bad the day after. I hope you guys have fun with this one!
