Sexy Chica Chest Workout for Women

chest workout for women

I hope you guys have enjoyed the targeted workouts I’ve been posting lately.  In case you missed, here are a couple from the last few weeks:

Keeping on the trend of upper body workouts for women, here’s a new chest workout I designed with the ladies in mind (although men will enjoy it as well).  For best results, complete the entire circuit using 8-20 pound dumbbells, depending on your strength.  You’ll notice that this workout has bench press “negatives” in it.  Just perform a basic, lying dumbbell bench press but push the weights up quickly and then bring them down to starting position very slowly, controlling the resistance on the way down (count to 3 slowly to make sure you are moving at the right pace.)  As always, add a little cardio and stretching to the end of the workout.

Enjoy and let me know how it goes.  Lots of luv, Brit

Sexy Shoulders Resistance Workout for Women

brit sexy shoulders workout

Happy Saturday Ladies and Gents!  While I love you both equally, I designed this workout especially for the ladies.  I think many of you can empathize with the how hard it is to find a challenging shoulder workout that isn’t catered towards bulking up (i.e. 4 set of 5 military press at 50 pounds). Come on, I don’t want to look like I can pick up my date, I just want to be able to rock a nice sleeveless blouse during my date.  However, let me caveat my last statement by clarifying that even if we don’t want to bulk up, we must still lift a weight that challenges us.  If it doesn’t challenge us, it doesn’t change us! Don’t be afraid to pick up a pair of 10-20 pound dumbbells when doing my “Sexy Shoulders” workout.

While I created this shoulder workout just for the ladies, it’s a great workout for men as well.  Unlike my other arm workouts, this routine solely focuses on the shoulder muscles instead of the entire arm.  It’s a great way to isolate the shoulders and really build some definition.  For best results, do this workout  2 times per week along with 30 minutes of cardio for 4 weeks.  Enjoy and let me know how it goes.

Lots of luv, Brit

Babalicious Bicep Workout

Showin’ of my “Babalyicous” Biceps. Hey, no shame in my game 🙂

What’s up GRIT GANG?!   Hope your week is off to an AWESOME start – mine certainly is.  This morning before work I did this bicep workout along with some cardio.  I figured I’d share the workout with you guys since I got some requests after posting my Triceps Workout last week.

For best results, do this workout 1-2 times per week and combine it with a tricep workout – it’s important equally work opposite muscle groups.  Use 2 medium dumbbells (about 5-10 pounds depending on your strength).  Just like the tricep workout, this routine has a LOT of reps, so you don’t have worry about bulking up.  Get ready to show off your sexy sculpted arms!  #heygurlhey

Enjoy and lots of luv, Brit

Trim, Tone and Tighten Your Triceps!

Brit

Hey hey GRIT Gang!  I don’t have much to say about this workout except, “JUST DO IT!”  Your sleeveless tops and dresses will thank you 🙂  All you need are 2 light/medium dumbbells (about 5-8 pounds).  This workout totally works your triceps through a combination of body weight isometric training and dynamic dumbbell moves.   No need to worry about bulking up because I uniquely designed the workout with high reps and low weight!  However, you WILL be sore after, so be sure to stretch and work your opposite muscles (biceps) as well.  Enjoy and lots of luv!  -Brit

Farewell Flabby Arms!

I hope you guys had a great Cinco de Mayo holiday weekend.  I spent my weekend in California celebrating a friend’s wedding – it was amazing!  The sun was shining and I finally got to wear some of my favorite sundresses.  On that note, nothing looks better in a sleeveless sundress than nice toned arms.  So, check out this arm workout that I designed to get you on a “Michelle Obama level.”  You’ll need 2 medium dumbbells to complete the exercises.  This is a nice workout to tag on to the end of a cardio sweat session.  You can workout with me in real-time by watching the video (click play above) or do the workout on your own (follow the instructions below).  Either way, be sure to try it out and let me know how it goes!

Enjoy rockin’ those sundresses #getitgurl

Tone it Up Tuesday: Upper Body Workout

michelle obama arm workoutMichelle Obama arms anyone?

Here’s an upper body toning workout I designed in aspiration of getting first class guns just like our fierce first lady.   The workout focuses solely on the biceps, triceps, shoulders and abs.  You don’t need hand weights and can do this workout right in your living room – yay!

The entire workout takes  30 minutes and burns about 200 calories.  I’m going to give it a whirl tonight along with 30 minutes of cardio.  Try it for yourself and let me know how it goes – enjoy!

Lots of luv,

Brit 😉
