There are many that think “working out” means tons of massively sweaty cardio, super heavy weights, and so many grunting sounds.

But, the truth is you can get a highly effective workout in your own home that gets a good sweat on, muscle building, and toning to that sexy gorgeous body.

PLUS…it’s all in the comfort of your own home. 

Today’s workout takes us back to the basics with simple, yet effective moves to get your arms humming.

You know that feeling when you have had a really good workout…and all the muscles are talking to you….Yep, this is the exact workout for this.

Even during these stranger times of lockdown, a good workout can be accomplished in your own home.  Check out today’s upper body home workout that was created by a mom for a mom.  Quick, simple moves, highly effective, and all without dragging out a ton of exercise equipment.

What do I need for this workout?

The best workouts, especially at home, don’t require a ton of equipment to be dragged out of the closet or from under our bed.  This workout only needs you, a pair of weights (or really anything heavy), and a desk/wall to lean against.

Today…we are going for time with a very short rest.  No need to count how many reps you did and gives you time to focus on the move and your form.

Where did you get that outfit?

Oh…you already know! This entire outfit (top, sports bra and shorts) are all from Old Navy.

Old Navy has been my staple go-to for activewear. Talking tons of different options, colors, and sizes. Real clothes for real shaped women. Plus they last forever, wash well, and won’t empty your wallet.

Wrapping this one up!

Home workouts are the silver lining to this whole crazy year!  When COVD rolled in like a giant hurricane, our usual routines completely fell apart in one quick quarantine ruling.  Who knew that our own family rooms would become the next “hot” spot for working out? 

Missing a workout buddy?  Did you know this entire workout was done by a zoom call with other ladies just like you?  Each week, we come together for a 30 minute or less workout but from our own homes.
