Throwing Around Some Weights: Upper Body Day

My favorite days are weight days… I just love the feeling of lifting heavy weights and seeing the muscles getting more defined!!  I have always been short and “big boned” as everyone liked to say… so I always felt like I was built for power, not speed.  Although I have gotten faster with my running and have seen improvement with my Athletic Conditioning, weight training will always be my first love…  This is one I made up when my son was home sick from school.  I used the bands and adjustable dumbbells my husband has in our bonus room.
