Workout :: Bis and Chest Routine for Her

Share
In an effort to streamline our blog and keep things coming to our readers in a timely manner, we have moved the Sunday Shreds to Thursdays! Sorry, no catchy title though... (feel free to suggest one!).  Moving along in our "For Her" workout series, our next routine is a bis and chest workout that is a regular occurrence in our gym repertoire.

Please Note: Before beginning routine, please ensure you are healthy enough to perform such exercises. Also, please adjust weight according to your own fitness levels. Weight suggestions are merely guidelines (we tend to lift additional weight varying with our skill level and intensity). Machine Assisted merely means that we advocate using a machine for this exercise vs. free weights.

Weighted Ropes

Standing with feet shoulder width apart, knees bend, back straight and chest up, grasp ropes, one in both hand. Move ropes outward and slap ropes inward squeezing your chest muscles with each movement. Do as many as you can for one minute. Rest for one minute. 
Repeat 2 additional times. 

Got it ladies? Remember, adapt this to your own personal strengths, fitness level and needs. Make sure that you vary the routine as well at least every 4-5 times you do it to keep your body guessing.


Enjoy!

  2. Hi! Thanks for all of the work you do and the great workout posts! I am starting a workout regimen next week and I know how to do most of the exercises based on the descriptions but not all. Do you post any videos or graphics showing how to do the exercises? Also, what type of schedule do you follow with regards to lifting (i.e., Mon., Wed., Fri., Sun., - lift, Tues./Thurs. HIIT)?

    Thanks again!
