In The MYX: Upper Body Burn with @colormecourtney

In The MYX: Upper Body Burn with @colormecourtney

It’s time to add some color and positivity to your workouts! Just like working out can power up your day, color can do the same. The two of them together?! An unstoppable combo. Join Courtney Quinn of @colormecourtney and MYX Coach Justin Flexen for this 5-minute upper body burn full of that positive energy. 

For this workout, you will need a mat and a light set of dumbbells. Let’s go! 





Lateral-Front-Lateral Raise: Begin with feet shoulder distance apart, knees soft and tailbone pointing towards the floor. Hold one dumbbell in each hand and extend the arms out to the side, to the front and then back to the side. Then, lower down to the starting position and repeat.



Alternating Archer Row: Begin with feet shoulder distance apart, knees soft and tailbone pointing towards floor. Bring both dumbbells to touch, arms extended, directly in front of your chest. Pull one arm back making sure to squeeze the back and keeping the opposite arm fully extended. Return to the starting position then repeat on the other side. 



Bicep Curl to ½ Press: Begin with feet shoulder distance apart, knees soft and tailbone pointing towards floor. Hold one dumbbell in each hand and keep the palms turned IN.  Bend your elbows and curl the dumbbells to shoulders, then press the dumbbells overhead without fully locking your elbows. Dumbbells should go just above the head then return to the starting position and repeat.



Alternating Shoulder Press: Begin with feet shoulder distance apart, knees soft and tailbone pointing towards floor. Hold one dumbbell in each hand and keep both arms in a 90 degree angle with palms facing out. Fully extend the right arm until the elbow is fully straight and dumbbell is in line over the shoulder. Return to the starting position then complete on the other side. One arm should fully extend while the opposite arm stays at 90 degrees. 



Row to Tricep Kickback: Begin with feet shoulder distance apart, knees soft and tailbone pointing towards floor. Hold one dumbbell in each hand and hinge forward at the hips into a 90 degree angle with your arms extended towards the floor. Pull both elbows up so that the dumbbell is just below the ribcage. From there, fully extend the elbows back making sure to keep the elbow pulled into the ribcage. Return to starting position and repeat.
