Upper Body Blast

I had a great workout yesterday at Desert Fitness in Gilbert, Arizona. My month long travels proved hard to find gyms since I was mostly traveling around Costa Rica. I did a lot of hiking and beach runs, and plyometrics on the beach. So when I find a gym, it's a very exciting time!

This took me just under one hour. It will take a long time if you take too many breaks. I did not take any breaks, just long enough to sip water. If you aren't sweating and burning by the end of this workout, you aren't working hard enough!
