Upper Body & Abs Workout for Women (Part 2)

Upper Body & Abs Workout for Women (Part 2)

Upper Body and Abs Workout for Women (Part 2)

When I set out to film workout videos I look at three things: has anyone requested certain workouts, what workouts are lacking on the channel and what are my most popular and viewed workouts.

Hence today’s workout Upper Body and Abs Workout for Women – Part 2 (but, really guys can do this too).

If you have done Part 1 Upper Body and Abs Workout for Women  I thought you might would enjoy another workout to add to their upper body training repertoire.

And if you haven’t done Part 1 – there is no need to do any of these two in order (part one first and then part two). Just choose at least one upper body workout a week and do it please. That’s all I ask.

Chest, Tri and Ab Workout

For women (kinda)

Poor loving husband. He got dragged into another workout with me, and this time one that I am featuring as a “for women workout”.

However, to be honest any gender can do this. It’s just that 90% of my audience are women, so I tend to cater to the masses.

This upper body workout for women (kinda) compliments the workout I released last week, Back, Biceps & Abs.

To really tone the upper body I suggest performing each, once a week, and then also doing a total body workout (that includes upper body exercises), and a leg workout.

Then BOOM in a few weeks you will start the reaping the benefits of all of your hard work.

Back, Biceps and Abs Workout

Back, Biceps and Abs Workout

Back, Biceps and Abs Workout

This circuit workout, Back, Biceps and Abs, is a take-off from one of my Bikini Competition workouts.

You see I hate doing traditional strength workouts (such as doing 3-4 sets of the same move right after one another, with a rest in between the sets).

I find it mentally draining. I like to keep moving throughout my workouts.

So, I developed a few circuit-style workouts for my Bikini Comp prep to offset the boring-ness (is that even a word? BOOM! It is now) of multiple set training – while still getting the intensity I need.

While this isn’t exactly what I do for my workout, it is as close as I can get it without all the tools I use at home, and taught at a level where I can still talk.

Back Biceps & Abs Workout For Women

Tools needed for today’s workout:

  • A stability ball (however, loving husband is on set doing the workout without a ball if you don’t own one)
  • A pair of light, moderate and heavy dumbbells
  • A mat, if you are training on a hard surface
  • Some room around you if you are using a ball

TRX Booty Lift & Abs

TRX Booty Lift & Abs

TRX Booty Lift and Abs

I presented this workout to my class back in January and they loved it! It hits all the target points you want to be firm and toned. The:

  • Glutes
  • Hips
  • Hamstings
  • Quads
  • Abs
  • Obliques
  • Deep core muscles

Now, a heads up though.

You must be comfortable with one foot in the TRX for this workout. If you are not, you can perform all the lunges and single leg squats without the TRX. Okay? Okay!

Don’t own a TRX? Then try this leg workout instead – it’s pretty glute and ab focussed too.

Stretches for a Better Night’s Sleep

Stretches for a Better Night’s Sleep

Stretches for a Better Night’s Sleep

If you struggle with falling asleep this is the perfect routine for you. These stretches aim to give you a better night’s sleep.

For 15-minutes I lead you through a series of gentle stretches aimed at releasing all the muscles that get tight on us during day.

You will feel a lightness and a relief throughout the whole body afterwards, setting yourself up for a peaceful deep sleep.

These are the perfect stretches for a better night’s sleep.

A Better Night’s Sleep

Some sleep stats from Statistics Canada:

  • Men sleep less than women. However, that’s a pile of you-know-what at my house.
  • Peri and menopausal women sleep the least out of any age bracket for women.
  • People who work full-time sleep (on average) 24 minutes less than those who worked part-time or not at all.
  • Working in shifts (shift workers) can affect a person’s sleep and health – since the night is the body’s most natural time to heal and rejuvenate.
  • Individuals with a personal income of $60,000 or more sleep 40 minutes less than those who make less than $20,000. Researcher’s believe it’s due to longer working days and commutes.
  • On average married Canadians sleep 24 minutes less than unmarried Canadians.
  • Kids deprive parents of sleep. Individuals who had one child sleep, on average, 17 minutes less than those who don’t, and parents with two children on average 25 minutes (sorry, no data on 3+ more kids).
  • Being stressed for time greatly affects sleep. Canadians who reported feeling highly time-crunched slept almost half an hour less than people who indicated they have a low level of time stress.

If you have problems with sleep I highly recommend these posts I have on the site:

Muscle Confusion Workout

Muscle Confusion Workout

Muscle Confusion Workout

A couple of weeks ago my computer’s hard drive fried on me – right in the middle of formatting this video. I cried. It was sad to see my old friend Mac give it’s breath, and take my work with it.

However, my BFF did not let me down. When I got a new hard drive put in and started the slow process of putting all my files back on the drive lo’ and behold there was the video.

Still there, waiting for it’s final edit. Waiting to be released it into the world.

Well… here you go world, meet one of my new favourite workouts.

Muscle Confusion – All Levels Workout

Loving husband had a ROUGH time with this workout. He was very tired and was wondering, near the end, what he did wrong in life to be saddled up with a personal trainer for a wife.

I, of course, remind him every day that he is damn lucky to have me. And he, of course, rolls his eyes every time.

I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy forever. Click To Tweet

Tools needed:

  • Weights: light to moderate
