Upper Body Cable Shred: Cable Workout

Upper Body Cable Shred: Cable Workout

Another Monday, and another workout! I love working with cables! You can really focus in on each muscle and it gives you so much range of motion. For this workout all you’ll need is access to a cable machine, or a resistance band hook up!

Check out this post for turning your resistance band into a cable machine at home!

Before your workout begins, make sure you have your post workout fuel ready to go!

After tearing down your muscles, you need time to recover.  Another thing you need to recover is the correct fuel. I recommend using a dairy-free protein powder along with a replenish/recovery drink. The Vega Sport Line is perfect for all your post workout needs.

To replenish your glycogen and carbohydrate levels, you should be consuming a good recovery drink. Vega has a Recovery Accelerator drink which will help your body recover faster and allow your body to keep burning fat instead of muscle even after your workout ends!

Then build your muscles back up with Vega Sport Protein! (chocolate is the best flave)! If you order online, you can take advantage of the 45 serving size tub. It’s nearly half the price per serving as their standard 19 serving tub, so totally worth it!

Learn more about the different proteins that Vega offers in THIS POST.

Your pre-workout fuel is just as important as your post-workout fuel!

Start off by making sure you’re well hydrated, since you will be working up a sweat during this workout. Drink a full glass of water (with a squeeze of lemon) and then start prepping your pre-workout drink.

The Vega Sport Line also has the perfect pre-workout supplement that your body needs. It’s only 70 calories and contains just the right amount of carbs and natural caffeine to keep your body going without bogging you down.
