I always have mixed feelings about upper body days. I feel like my arms are rather weak, but then I'll workout and feel like I could've easily done more. Maybe my previous routines weren't hard enough, or maybe I didn't push myself like I should have. That was not the case today.
As always, make sure to check with your medical professional before starting a new workout routine, to make sure that this is a safe and healthy move for you.
I managed to get through all the moves today using my 10 pound weights in about 30 minutes. I did have to take a few minor breaks, but never for more than a minute between circuits. I can definitely feel the soreness kicking in already, so I'm choosing to interpret that as a sign of a good workout, not a sign of weakness.
You'll need to do 16 reps per move, 3 sets of the circuit.
