Monday Motivation – At-Home Upper Body Workout

Gooooood morning out there! My morning is already off to a weird start because I’m not feeling that motivation to go to the gym today. But you know what happens when motivation fails? Consistency kicks in. I had to take a couple days off of the gym because of soreness and that time off has me feeling a little weird and lethargic. So I’ll let that consistency take over and push me through my workout today. Then tomorrow I’ll feel back on my motivation train. Remember that it’s not always about motivation, it’s about dedication.

And if you’re feeling like me this morning and don’t really want to go to the gym, well you can simply try this workout instead! I was REALLY hoping to launch my fitness program today, but I’m still waiting on my web developer to finish up everything on my new website that launches this week along with the program! My 3-month power program will be all workouts that you can do in the comfort of your own home with just minimal equipment. Since we are just a few days from that program launching, I wanted to give you one last workout that you could do at home today, especially if you’re not feeling motivated to go to the gym OR you don’t even have a gym membership!

This workout concentrates on the upper body, but you’re also working the core like a MF. If you’re looking for a stronger back, more round shoulders, a more defined chest, AND a stronger core – this workout will definitely get all those things done in one! You’re going to challenge yourself in new ways and you’ll definitely feel sore by tomorrow!

Here’s a quick video tutorial to walk you through the workout –


4 rounds of:

  • 10 Push Up Bear Complex
  • 15 Kettlebell Pull Throughs (each side)
  • 10 Chameleons
  • 20 Total Alternating Bear Hold Kettlebell Pull Throughs
  • 10 Pike Toe Touch (each side) to Push Up

You can choose whatever kettlebell weight you prefer for this workout! I like 15-20lbs for the pull throughs for myself, but choose a weight that works for you! Remember, when it comes to modifications, you can always drop down the number of reps, remove a movement you cannot do quite yet, and change the weight of the kettlebell!

Hope you guys like this workout and I CANNOT WAIT for the program to launch!! I’ve been waiting for MONTHS to share it with you guys and it’s getting so damn close! I’ll be sharing all the details here once the new website is done and the program is available for purchase!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Love your workout inspiration! I’ve become a big fan of the cable station recently and would love to see your version of a total body workout, and/or full upper and lower body days, and maybe even some abs thrown in all on the cable station. Keep being you Juli, I’m here for it!
