Shoulder Workout and Workout Clothes Review (featuring Target® and Popsugar)
There are many fun things about being a fitness blogger and one of those things is doing reviews! So when I had the chance to review some Target® C9 activewear collection, for Popsugar Select, I jumped at it because about 60% of my current workout line includes items from them! Hang on because after I share with you what I got, you get a quick, effective shoulder workout from FitSugar among with a quick add-on routine that I created! Fun!
First off, let’s talk about the goods!
I absolutely LOVED this tank! You may have noticed that this type is very popular nowadays. You can find styles like these at many popular athletic wear companies, but I’m telling you, not at the price point that Target offers it! As soon as I walked into the gym, I had 2 people compliment me on it! I love that the sports bra is attached to the tank and that it gives a flowy feel. I also love the design and navy and pink combo however there are some other cute colors to choose from! (I am wearing a size small)
The shorts are just a very basic short, but basic works for me! I love the waistband on these and that there are undies attached inside of them. These are navy blue and have a slight pink hue on them. I could wear lots of different colors with them and they would look great! Versatility of exercise clothes is important to me! There are other great colors to choose from! (I am wearing a size small)
And now onto something for you! There’s nothing quite like tank top arms for the summer and sculpting nice shoulders is a great way to get them! I LOVE this quick video below from Popsugar to get you started! I also decided to add something else to it for those of you who may want a more complete routine, so the printable below demonstrates a cardio move (speed bags) along with 2 side ab moves (side planks and penguin taps) Cycle through the routine twice if time allows! (It was totally random that I have on the outfit that Anna has in the video below! )

And now the printable with exercise explanation!
Note: Do each exercise all the way through, then do it again on the other side!
1) Speed Bag: Circle arms around as if you are punching a bag. You can keep your legs steady or shift side to side. (30 seconds)
2) Side Lifts: Lay on your side on your forearm.Stack your legs and lift your hips to the ceiling. (Hold for 30 sec and after the hold, pulse up for 15 counts. )
3) Penguin Taps: Lay on your back and place on hand behind your head while the other is straight down to the side. Keep “lifted” in the chest (as opposed to sinking) as you exhale and reach down to the ankle. Come back up. Repeat. (Do 20 “taps” and then pulse down for 15)
