Exercise #1: Upright Rows

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Using a weighted plate, grip through a slot. Start with your feet shoulder-width apart, slight bend in the knees, core engaged and shoulder blades pulled down your back. Start with the plate in front of you, about hip height with a slight bend in the elbows. Pull the plate up at a nice even pace. Elbows coming up towards the ceiling. Slight pause at the top of your pull, shoulder blades squeezing together. Lower the weight down without locking your elbows at the bottom. 

Repeat 3 sets, 12 reps, 30 seconds rest in between sets.

 

Exercise #2: Front Raise + Right and Left Twists

Start with feet shoulder-width apart and a slight bend in the knees. Using a weighted plate, grab each side. Raise the plate to eye level. Twist the plate to the right, like you’re driving a car, come back to the middle, twist the plate to the left. Lower the plate down to thighs.

Repeat 3 sets, 10 reps, 30 seconds rest in between sets.

 

Exercise #3: Around The Worlds

Starting with your feet shoulder width apart, slight bend in the knees, core engaged. Grab two plates and turn your palms facing forward. Start from your sides and bring the plate out, and up to above eye level without touching your head. You’re making an invisible oval shape with the plates.
