Adios, flabby arms and muffin top!! Okay, okay you know me…it’s not JUST about the workout when it comes to REAL fat loss and staying in shape but this upper body and abs workout is seriously the bomb. I totally still felt my biceps, triceps and abs 2 days later! Raise your hand if you know that feeling of laughing when your abs are sore. HA!
Quick note, there are 2 OTHER MAJOR components (outside of the body and the workouts) that have helped me crack the code for myself and my clients and they can totally help you, too! We will be breaking them all down in my 6-week Mind Body Love online coaching program.

Allllllrighty…back to the arms & abs workout!
You definitely need a dumbbell for many of the exercises in this workout and you’ll need a mini band or theraband for one exercise. Click here to shop for these items in my amazon shop. How heavy should the weight be? GREAT QUESTION! It should be heavy enough for you so that the last 1-2 reps are pretty hard to do.
What’s a triset?
A few days ago, I posted a superset workout for the legs, butt & cardio. This time it’s a triset. It’s basically the same except you have 3 exercises instead of 2. Complete all 3 exercises one after the other with as little rest as possible in between. The longer rest comes at the end of the 3 exercises. It’s basically like a mini sweaty circuit 🙂
