Since crossing the finish line of my 7th half-marathon, I think I’ve run a total of 5 miles — and I am probably overestimating. I know my craving to run will return – presumably in sync with the cooler fall temperatures – but for now, yoga sounds soothing, weights appealing, and a spin class – sure!
This dumbbell workout came about the other week when I was chatting with P as to what would compliment the reverse fly: regular fly or chest press? He picked the chest press, so I started with a superset of said exercises and progressed from there. Four supersets later, and I had a solid upper and lower body workout.
Per my explanation of supersets in this post, I feel it semi-inaccurate to call sets 2 through 4 “supersets”, as they don’t necessarily work the same or opposing muscle group; but you’ll excuse me, won’t you? It is an engaging workout, nonetheless, sculpting a few of my favorite muscles — the deltoids and derriere.
What You’ll Need
- set(s) of dumbbells – adjust weight if needed
- yoga mat – optional
- Reduce the reps to 10 if 15 seems too much
