50-Rep Upper Body + Abs Challenge

50-Rep Upper Body + Abs Challenge

Merry Christmas Eve! If you’re looking for a fast-but-challenging workout to do today, you’ve come to the right place! đŸ™‚

I’m all about challenges, both mental and physical. Pushing limits means making progress for me, and if you feel the same way, you’ll probably like this workout.

The workout may not look difficult on paper, but trust me when I say it’s a doozy, especially if you’re not accustomed to endurance workouts. I used lighter dumbbells (affiliate link!) for the curls and raises, and my biceps and shoulders were ON FIRE.

I had already completed 250+ push-ups, so this workout was a “finisher” that brought me to muscle failure. If you do this too, you’ll combine strength and endurance into one session and get more bang for your workout buck.

However, you can also complete this workout by itself if you’re new to strength training or short on time. I started strength training 3.5 years ago with these basic moves and still complete them today.

Regardless of what you choose, let me know what you think of the challenge if you try it. Also, stay tuned for more “challenge” workouts in the next week or so. I’m home for the holidays and actually have time to share my fitness creations. <— Yay for vacation!!!

Until next time,
Brianna

Questions:

  1. Do you ever combine strength and endurance in one workout?
