Basic Shoulders & Arms Workout

I’ve got another basic workout to share with you today.  Be sure to check out my Basic Leg Workout.  These basic workouts are fabulous for people who are just learning to lift weights or for those who might be getting back to strength training (like me) or merely want a new workout to try!  I will encourage you to lift heavier weights than you are used to.  While these basic exercises should be done between 12 – 15 reps each set, the last couple of reps should be difficult (while still maintaining proper form – safety first!).  If all 12 – 15 reps are easy, you need to increase the weight.

For those of you who are more advanced, I recommend throwing some cardio into the mix.  Superset the exercises and, instead of resting, jump rope for a minute.  Just an idea.  You know I’m a fan of supersetting exercises no matter what your skill level.  Since I do lift heavy, my arms are always jello by the end of this.

  1. I like simple workouts. Crossfit WODs, circuits, and what not are great, but I get the best results when I do traditional workouts on a regular basis.

  2. Great workout girl! Love how you did the stars on that too, so cute!

    I like the basic dumbbell curl! I do miss weights, but hopefully soon I can do them again!

    Happy weekend! <3

  3. Great workout! Barbell rows are a staple for me and I haven’t done hammer curls in forever! Pinning this for later 🙂

  4. Yay congrats Brittany! And thanks for another wonderful workout. Seriously, this looks great and I pinned it. Love the idea of doing cardio in between sets! I cannot sit still in between! I also like to do abs
