Hey Purely Fit Friends!

Thank you to everyone who entered, shared and commented on our serenity essential oil giveaway!!! We are so excited to give Laura this bottle of heaven. More details for the winner at the bottom of this post.

Speaking of heaven, baby M had a special weekend. I took pictures of Lori and her cute baby bump! We posted one picture on instagram and facebook if you want to check it out. Pretty right?  I am so excited for little M to get here…well everyone is over here! Now with a baby on the way we need lots of upper body strength. Are we right moms?

You get tired after holding them for a while… their little bodies are very deceiving.

A tough upper body home workout that will leave your arms on fire. 

Purely training #71 workout will leave you dead on the floor. You won’t be able to move your arms.

And the last exercise is a fun one…

Renegade row burpee!!

This workout sounds fun right?

Equipment:  free weights (dumbbells), chair or equalizer.

Style of workout:  Time challenge workout

Workout focus: Upper body

Set your Gymboss Interval Timer to the stop watch setting. And record how long it takes you to finish this workout. You will be completing 5 rounds.

Renegade row burpees are great to work multiple muscles at once while getting a great cardio burn.

Purely fit sisters can you beat us? 

We finished the workout in under 20 minutes!

Oh yes 20 minutes of upper body burn!

Lori is in her 3rd trimester (she did this workout at 29 weeks). Follow along with the modifications mentioned in the video and as always listen to your body! Update now after having baby and diastasis I would not recommend this workout for pregnancy.

If you are new to working out please take this workout slow and omit moves that feel uncomfortable. 

Here is the ARMS on FIRE upper body workout breakdown.

We suggest for different fitness levels:

B-fits (beginner peeps) – Follow modifications from video. Take breaks when needed. Do push-ups for plank hugs on your knees. Use bodyweight for renegade row burpee. Go at a slower pace.  Start the burpee countdown at 6 or 4 until you build up your strength to start at 10.

A-fits (advanced peeps) –  Limit your breaks in between rounds. Use moderate to heavy weights for renegade row burpee. Do tricep dips on equalizer if you have one.  

Get yourself an equalizer and save some money – use this code at checkout P2RTEQ20. We do have an affiliation with them, so if you purchase through our link Purely Twins gets a small percentage of your purchase at no extra cost to you. Thank you for you support in advance!!

FIT moms (pregnancy recommendations) – Not recommend for pregnancy even though Lori is pregnant.

Get yourself warmed up and then come work out with us.

I finally finished a workout! It was still tough and I had to take breaks but I was able to start at 10 and work down! I am sure my form was less than perfect but prayerfully as I get stronger it will get better! I am so excited that I finished!
