Don’t you love the hint of autumn in the air? I sure do! It’s a new month and it happens to be September. This time of year always feels like it’s a restart to the year again. The craziness of summer activities ends with the kids going back to school. I’m filled with a renewed energy to stay consistent with my own fitness training and push further ahead with my online fitness business. But I also know with renewed optimism it means becoming a bit busier. And if life isn’t already busy enough I’m having another little one on the way in a couple of months. I want to stay strong and limber for my family. So balancing all the responsibilities of being a husband, dad and entrepreneur is quite the challenge.
As the weather becomes cooler, I love training outdoors even more. Get me out of the humid hot summer and into the cool crisp fall chill. Here is a quick bite-sized push pull upperbody strength workout. It’s a full bodyweight routine using gravity and angles.
This push pull upperbody strength workout consists of 4 different exercises. I managed to find a hip height chin-up bar and used it in this routine. But you can perform the exercises with a height which works for you. Make sure it’s secured! This is my bite-sized workout program:
- Elevated Push-up – 60 seconds
- Elevated Push-Up with Alternating Knee Drive – 60 seconds
- Reverse Pull-Up – 60 seconds
- Reverse Pull-Up with Leg Lift – 30 seconds each leg
I managed to do 2 sets with one minute rest between sets. This entire routine took 10 minutes. My arms, back, and core were on fire. You can really feel the burn. Best of all, I didn’t have to make my way to gym or try to fit in an hour workout to feel like I accomplished something. Try it out for yourself, I guarantee you’ll get your heart rate elevated while feeling the burn.
I will be posting regular bite-sized target routines on my youtube channel. So make sure to subscribe and click on the bell notification to you never miss new updated routines to transform your dad bod.
