3 rounds #HIIT & some easy #yoga #asana

I thought I should look for some arm targeted workouts and make a point to work specifically on the problem spot – rather that merely on “getting a workout” – two to three times per week. I’ll start with 2x a week and go for four to see if there’s any discernible difference. But first, I started with an overall cardio from my go-to source.

I haven’t done any workouts chiefly with an aesthetic motivation in mind in a long time. I do a lot of lower body work, but that’s mainly because they work the largest muscles and get the heart rate up. This is different. I’ll try targeting arms a bit.

The workout I did today is decent, but I need to write one of my own that’s heavier on the triceps and delts, I think. Not sure.

If all this fails I can:

  1. Stop wearing sleeveless tops or, better yet
  2. Refuse to let anyone photograph me wearing sleeveless tops.
