If you’re anything like us, you are super looking forward to the summer. Wait, scratch that… CRAVING the summer! Hot weather, delicious drinks, and hanging out at the pool are all things us babes love to do. But hold up, because if you’re gonna be hanging out at the pool, you’re gonna be looking darn fine while doing so. So what’s the key to a killer body? Our Bootealicious teatox is going to get you most of the way there, but for that little bit extra you’re gonna have to work. Don’t sweat it, babe, because if you’re looking in shape for the summer season you’ve come to the right place. Here are our four favorite exercises to keep your upper body toned.
Let’s start with a classic. You know it. Maybe you love it. Regardless of your relationship to this exercise, you use your biceps on the daily, so it’s def a good idea to be working them out, and giving them the attention they deserve. The bicep curl is simple, straightforward exercise to do. We suggest starting out with a 5-10lbs of weight, and to do 4 sets, each with 12 reps.
Ever see those bodybuilders with super jacked shoulders? Yeah, this is one of those exercises that got them there. But you don’t need to be a bodybuilding babe to benefit from this awesome exercise. Lat raises help to improve the blood flow to your tissue and can improve shoulder joint health. We suggest starting out with a 5-10lbs of weight, and to do 4 sets, each with 12 reps.
This exercise works a whole bunch of muscles in your upper back and shoulders. What’s that? Another shoulder exercise? Unless you’re planning on confining yourself to long-sleeved shirts, you’re gonna want to make sure you give your upper body the workout it deserves. We suggest starting out with a 5-10lbs of weight, and to do 2 sets, each with 20 reps.
Alright, we don’t want to hype this next exercise up too badly, but it might just be the secret to slimmed arms. The tricep kickback works out your triceps muscle, which runs up the underside of your upper arm. Keeping this muscle toned ensures that there’s nothing loose hanging around when you lift your arms. We suggest starting out with a 5-10lbs of weight, and to do 4 sets, each with 12 reps.
So that’s it! Stick to these four key workouts, and you will have a sleek, fleek, and sexy upper-body. Pair this workout with one of our teatoxes, and you’ll be ready for the summer season. Love what you see? Be sure to follow us on Instagram for the latest updates, tips, and giveaways!
