Weekly Workout - 15 Min Upper Body (No Weight!)
Hey guys! Today we’re sharing a fun, quick hitting way to get in a solid arm workout when you’re on to go. We’re keeping with the theme of easy, go-to travel workouts that require NO equipment. This one is a tabata style, which means you’re going for time, not repetitions. Don’t rush to do as many reps as possible - instead focus on good form. It can be a challenge to increase your reps as you get stronger!
Pro tip: At the very bottom of the page is a category tab - I’ve created an entire category of Weekly Workouts, so you can always search through them when you’re feeling the need for a little inspiration.
The important thing is that we get to have a little bit of fun with it! All of these workouts were designed with busy people in mind or those who travel frequently.
The goal of this one is to keep your focus on your arms. Hold your core in tight during the pushups and inch worms so that your back cannot arch. There’s a lot of room for modifications as you get better with this workout, so feel free to play around with it!
15 minute upper body
Increase the difficulty!
Looking to make it even more challenging? Add in a variety of pushups - try varying the type of pushup: wide, narrow, tricep, or even diamond! Each type of pushup will focus on a different part of your upper body.
If you want more challenge in the inchworms and pushups, you can always raise one leg off the ground for more of a balance challenge!
Need a modification?
As always, you can scale the pushups down to the ground! Place one (or two!) knees on the ground to give your shoulders a break. It is better to have full range of motion in the movement before adding resistance, so use those knees until you’re comfortable.
