Upper Body Weighted Plate Workout

How to perform the Upper Body Plate Workout:

This workout is very simple to set up (all you need is a light-to-moderate weighted plate) and can be done in any timeframe that you have (anywhere from 15-30 minutes), but should be done at a fast-pace and with minimal rest. You can even fit this workout in at the end of a workout for an extra calorie burn! Complete all exercises in a row for 1 round, rest for 1 minute, then begin with the first exercise for round 2. Complete as many rounds as you can in the time you have! (Try for 4-6 rounds!)

As always, be sure to warm up before beginning the first round and cool down and stretch when you are finished.

Round 1:

  • 15 Plate front raises
  • 15 Plate bicep curls
  • 15 Plate overhead tricep extensions
  • 20 Plate around the worlds (10 each direction)
  • 20 Plate bus drivers (10 each direction)

Check out this short video to see how each exercise is performed and to ensure that you have proper form throughout each exercise!

There you have it! A FUN and FAST Upper Body Plate Workout that will strengthen your upper body AND core! This type of workout is also great to throw in at the end of an upper body lift to really burn out the arms and fire your core muscles!

Have a great workout and a wonderful weekend ahead!
