Today's Workout: Bis and Tris

As a group exercise instructor, fitness is a passion of mine as well as my job. I have no formal background in exercise science or kinesiology, but I will share my own workouts with you every now and again incase you all need a new routine or just want some inspo!

Today's workout was bis and tris. Weight can be adjusted according to your strength and comfort.


1 mile warm-up on the treadmill (I run in between 7 and 9mph the whole time, but run or jog at your own pace just to get the sweat going!)


Preacher Curls: 4 sets of 10 @ 40 lbs.

Superset with Tricep Extensions: 4 sets of10 @ 40 lbs.

(for this I just rotate between the bicep and tricep machine to warm up my muscles)


Wide Bicep Curls/Narrow Bicep Curls (Alternating) w/ curl bar: 4 sets of 12 for each @ 30 lbs.

Superset with Tricep Pulldowns w/ rope: in between bicep sets, sets of 10 @ 40 lbs.

30 second plank in between full sets.
