Recently my work schedule has changed up a bit, allowing me to start working out in the mornings again with some of my girlfriends who live close by (yay!). I find that it is much easier for us to workout in the morning time since the gym isn't as crowded as it is in the evening time and we are usually able to get the weights or equipment we need. Another advantage to setting up morning gym dates, is that it holds you accountable since someone is counting on you to be there, no time for pushing that snooze button! Not to mention working out with friends is always fun! Lucky for me, my girls aren't scared to push hard in the gym and go for the heavier weights! Nothing worse than a whiny friend who is still pushing 2lb dumbells :)
Last Friday I met up with my friend Colleen for some cardio, ab work, and kettlebells. We had a great workout and after she went off to work and I got to go back home and relax for the rest of the morning until it was time for me to scoot off to work.
This morning I met with my friend Lindsay at her gym for a little 10am gym date. We completed a full upper body superset workout. Each exercises were done back to back, followed by 1 minute rest after the last exercise was completed, then repeat. When we got done both of our muscles were shaking like crazy, love that feeling! Definitely a killer workout and a really good start to the week!
Upper Body Superset Workout:
Chest press/Pushups - 3 sets/10-12 reps each exercise
Bent over row/Renegade row - 3 sets/10-12 reps each exercise
Shoulder press/Jumping jacks/Lateral raise - 3 sets/10-12 reps each exercise
