April always feels so much better with brighter evenings, better weather (well sometimes..lol) and lots of beautiful flowers in bloom. Speaking of things in bloom, this month we are focusing on sculpting our upper body! Everyone seems to go crazy for the workouts which are focused on building a bigger butt, slimmer waist etc, but I am not seeing the same love for our arms or upper body. There seems to be this fear that my lifting weights you will turn into the incredible hulk!!
The reality is that only when you progressively overload your muscles (by lifting heavier weights over time) and fuel your body with adequate nutrition, that is when you will begin to see muscle growth. However, we have become creatures of gadgets; constantly looking down at our phones, sitting in front of screens for long periods etc. Have you stopped to consider what it is doing to your posture?
So this month's challenge focuses on 7 upper body sculpting exercises that when performed regularly, will leave you with some amazing arms, sculpted shoulders and better posture too!! As always, the weights are optional, so you can even do them at your desk too!! Remember you can download a copy of this month's challenge as a PDF, so print it off and put in on your fridge or desk to remind yourself of the exercises!
Do let me know how you get on with this one! If you enjoyed it, then please sign up for my 30 day Arm-azing Arms challenge. Each day you will be given an arm sculpting exercise to work, as well as some bonus upper body workouts to try at the end of each week. Sounds good? To sign up, email email@example.com
