Duration:   24  mins

We combine upper body strength with metabolic training in this 20-minute upper body superset workout. This circuit training approach utilizes 40-second intervals of strength exercises superset with 20-second intervals of toning exercises to define your chest, back, shoulders, arms, and abs. Sculpt a lean, toned physique while getting stronger and burning calories at the same time. All you’ll need for this workout are a set of dumbbells and a mat or carpeted surface.

Lindsey will guide you through a light warm up which includes moves like arm circle and jumping jacks. Then it’s on to your workout! The first move in this upper body superset workout is a staggered push-up. Keeping your core tight and your gaze in front of you, you’ll perform this strength exercise for 40 seconds before heading into your 20 seconds of toning with army crawls. Next up, you’ll grab your dumbbells for the second move: the arnold press. Lindsey will provide plenty of instruction to ensure you keep the proper form and lead you into your 20 second toning move, press jacks.

After that, Lindsey will guide you through half-bicep curls, power hammer curls, and wide rows with fly-backs, which will build strength in your shoulders and back. The 40 seconds of strength moves combined with the 20 seconds of toning will help rev your metabolism, acting as a high intensity interval circuit for your entire upper body. You’ll repeat the circuit twice through as you burn out those arms in this upper body superset workout to build beautiful, strong muscles. The interval style of this workout offers plenty of variety to keep you interested and on your toes!

All exercises you perform are your own responsibility and you perform them at your own risk. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified health provider before starting any physical exercise, fitness or wellness regiments of any kind.
