Upper Body Antagonistic Workout 25 Min


Hi Guys, it’s been long time since my last workout video. I’ve worked out almost every day but I didn’t film. I continued with my approach – cardio and strength mix, app. 20-25 minutes per day. Sometimes 15 minutes, and sometimes even 30-40 minutes – I like to challenge my body with longer workouts from time to time.

I would like to film workouts 2-3 times weekly and will do my best to keep this schedule. I am very busy, because I have lots og clients in Bulgaria prparing special food plans with calorie deficit. I will tell you more about this in my future posts.

Exercises in today’s workout, Rumi’s time 25:25, weight: 4 kg (9 pound) dumbbell

I part – 25 rounds, 2 exercises
1. Table pulls – 2 reps
2. Push off+ 2 Push ups

    I just finishesd to enjoy this workout! I think the pushups part was the hardest for me.
    I tried to keep a good pace during the whole workout , no breaks. So it was kind of cardio for me too :-). I’m not used to change position after 2 reps at all. So I had to adapt to that kind of working out. I think the advantage of this was that I could catch up with breathing properly again 🙂
    Anyways thank you very much for this workout ! Loved it !

    Hey Rumi…
    i love your workouts. I’ve been following them since you had them in the different format, when they were downloadable. Your workouts are really targeted and I love those. I was wondering if you have an alternative for the table pulls. I remember in one of your videos, you had the alternative of placing hands on the walls and kind of doing like a wall push up. Do you have any other suggestions?

      Table pull is exercise mainly for back. Push up is exercise mainly for chest. ALternative for tabele pulls are Renegade rows 2 dumbbells in one hand or row from upright forward inclined postion 🙂
