Weekly Workouts 9/24 – 9/30

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend! On Sunday, Jon and I walked across the Manhattan Bridge and man were we tired after!! I’m not used to being on my feet, and the only real cardio I do is running a half mile before my workout. We are planning to go to Italy next year, and I know that will entail much more walking, so I’ve got to start stepping up my cardio game. Our gym doesn’t have a Stairmaster, so I may do some incline walking at a higher pace to get my heart rate up.

In two weeks I’ll be done with my busy season and will have more time to focus on my workouts 🙌🏻

Move of the week: Rear Delt Pull or Face Pulls

This is my all-time favorite exercise for my rear delts, which are little muscles on your upper back/shoulder. I incorporate this move on both shoulder and back days. Working your rear delts gives your shoulders and back more definition. I used to neglect training my rear delts, but I’m making up for it now and can really tell a difference.

The key to this exercise is to pull with your rear delt until you are in a position similar to if you were flexing both of your arms. It’s best to do lighter weight on this to really make a mind-muscle connection. I typically do about 10-12 reps with this exercise.
