The Bikini Top Workout

This strength training upper-body workout will tone your shoulders, triceps and chest to give you beautiful looking shoulders, toned triceps and make your bust look perkier. If you follow this program twice a week with a nutrition plan read How Do I Count  My Calories To Shred Fat and my articles about the Ketogenic Diet, you will see noticeable changes on your upper-body within 2 weeks.

 Keep in mind that each pound of muscle you have will burn 70 calories/day at rest!

The muscles you'll be working are your pectoral muscles (chest), triceps, deltoids (shoulders) and rear shoulders.

 

The Workout :

You will be performing 3 sets of 8 to 12 repetitions of each of the following exercises for each circuit. It should be challenging and you should try to lift as heavy as you can while keeping the form each time you do this in order to keep improving yourself. You should be struggling for the last rep. Make sure you fully recover from your set before starting the next one.

This workout should last about 60 minutes.

Complete each circuit before jumping to the next circuit (for circuit 1 you'd be doing exercises 1.a, 1.b, 1.c; rest; 1.a, 1.b, 1.c; rest; 1.a, 1.b, 1.c).
