Full Upper Body Home Workout | Tone + Strength

Strength training is THE thing that is going to change your body. Talking total toning and strength that does not add up to look like the hulk. Instead, this is an essential part of any training program that us ladies should incorporate into our regular routine.

That being said, we still need to figure out a way to accomplish this without spending hours in a gym or trying to figure out where to start.

Today’s workout is perfect for the home or gym and was created to be done in a small space. Just need you, weights, and a comfortable spot on the floor. This full upper body home workout will leave your arms shaking!

Strength training, AKA resistance training, is such an essential part of any fitness routine, especially for our arms and upper body. Despite the rumors, strength training is not going to give us huge, oversized, bulging muscles. What we do get is toned, strong, and sculpted muscles.

The Equipment

There is zero need for all the fancy workout gear. This workout takes weights and a comfortable spot on the floor only.

For your weights, shop around for discounted prices. Facebook marketplace and Craigslist are two really good options to find weights that are perfect for your space. I am pretty sure that I don’t have anything that matches but it was all on the cheap and works beautifully.

The Amazon Link for the weights are the ones that I do like and recommend the most for those that have smaller hands. Sometimes the dumbbells are so hard to hold with the thicker middle piece and these completely solve that problem.

Where did you get that outfit?

Oh…you already know! This top and sports bra are all from Old Navy. Check them out here.

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.

If you are looking for leggings…highly recommend checking out their Elevate Powersoft line for leggings. This is hands down my absolute favorite leggings. Super soft, just the right amount of compression and they have pockets!

My shorts are from Amazon and can be found HERE. If you are looking for a pair that won’t ride up into your lady parts, this is a really good option. Plus they have pockets!

Wrapping this one up!

total upper body home workout

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.
