Weight TrainingWhitney Carlson4 Comments

In an effort to streamline our blog and keep things coming to our readers in a timely manner, we have moved the Sunday Shreds to Thursdays! Sorry, no catchy title though... (feel free to suggest one!).  Moving along in our "For Her" workout series, our next routine is a bis and chest workout that is a regular occurrence in our gym repertoire.

Please Note: Before beginning routine, please ensure you are healthy enough to perform such exercises. Also, please adjust weight according to your own fitness levels. Weight suggestions are merely guidelines (we tend to lift additional weight varying with our skill level and intensity). Machine Assisted merely means that we advocate using a machine for this exercise vs. free weights.
