Bis and Tris Workout with Dumbbells

 
 

Hi Love!

This is not your average arm workout. This training session puts a fun spin on the classic bicep and tricep exercises we all know and love. Because let’s face it, it’s pretty boring to do the same old standard bicep curls and tricep kickbacks every upper body day. Sometimes you’ve just got to spice it up to stay engaged in your training sessions. 

Why not try something new in the pursuit of sexy sculpted tank top arms? You can find the full workout instructions below.

Then once they are fully nailing the routine, we can discuss adding extra workout days if they desire. 

If you’re only able to workout a couple days a week or you’re just getting started with building a new workout routine, I highly recommend starting with total body...

5 Mistakes to Avoid as a New Weight Lifter

gym beginners Sep 25, 2019
 

With so much contradictory information out there, it can feel overwhelming to figure out your game plan as a weight lifting newbie. There are a few mistakes I find most often in new lifters (some of which I myself was guilty of when I started!) This list covers 5 of the most common mistakes you should avoid as you begin a weight lifting routine. 

1. Thinking You Need to Bulk

I was definitely guilty of this assumption when I first started weight lifting. Bulking is not necessary to build muscle. There are a few things to note here.

As a new weight lifter, you can actually build a significant amount of muscle while losing fat in a calorie DEFICIT. (A deficit is when you’re burning more than you’re consuming.) Therefore, if you’re someone who’s just getting started, if you would like to tackle both of these goals at once, you CAN. You will see significant progress in both goals at the same time because your body has not yet adapted to an...
