Upper Body Workout ~ Power Yoga Arms
Get ready to tone your upper body while also sneaking in some ab toning too! Do each exercise below for one round, then repeat the circuit 2-3 times through.
Sculpts your triceps, chest, and core.
In a high plank position, bring your hands slightly closer than shoulder-width apart. With arms straight (elbows not locked out), make sure your body forms a straight line from head to knees. Keeping your elbows tucked close to your body, lower yourself as close to the ground as possible, then press back up. Need to modify: Drop to your knees for a little extra support!
Do 12 reps.
Strengthens your biceps.
Standing with feet hip-width apart, hold a dumbbell in each hand, palms facing up. Engage your core as you curl the weights up to shoulder height, then lower.
Do 15 reps.
Bicep Curl + Shoulder Press
Targets your biceps and shoulders.
Standing with feet hip-width apart, hold a dumbbell in each hand, palms facing up. Curl the weights up to shoulder height. Next, press the weights overhead, straightening your arms so biceps are by your ears. Then, re-bend the elbows to bring the weights back to shoulder height, and re-straighten your elbows.
Do 15 reps.
Curl + Press + Tricep Extension
Strengthens your biceps, triceps, shoulders, and core!
Standing with feet hip-width apart, hold a dumbbell in each hand, palms facing up. Curl the weights up to shoulder height. Then, press the weights overhead, straightening your arms so biceps are by your ears. Then, bring the weights together at the top, and bend your elbows (squeezing them together), so the dumbbells go back behind your head. Make sure to keep your spine in a neutral position. Re-straighten the elbows so the weights come back overhead, then lower them back to shoulder height, and finally lower back down to the starting position.
Do 12 reps.
