Hey hey it’s workout Wednesday! In honor of Halloween I made a “Spooky Shoulder Sculpting Workout.” All of the exercises are pretty straight forward, so grab a pair of dumbbells and get to work. Shoot me an email to [email protected] if you have any questions.
Do you know what you are going to be for Halloween? I’d love to hear your costume ideas! Have a wonderful Wednesday. Luv, Brit
I’ve always been fan of “Tarjay” so when I was asked to review the new Target® C9 activewear, I gladly accepted! Better yet when I went to purchase my gear, I stumbled upon the surprise of finding C9 activewear on sale – buy 1 piece get the 2nd half off! There were tons of bright colors and pattern combinations so you can mix and match the tanks and shorts. I bought both the light pink and navy Sporty Layered Run Tank + Run Shorts for under $30. This is a perfect example of why I love Target®. The product styles are always on trend and the price is affordable. One of the GRIT by Brit core beliefs is we do not have to be wealthy to be healthy. To further that, we also don’t have to be wealthy to feel and look good while living a healthy lifestyle 🙂
Now, a little more about my C9 activewear…
The tank top is layered with a sports bra built-in – YES! Not only is the design cute, but it’s also functional. It provides good bust support and the material is light and breezy so I stayed cool while working up a sweat. I also appreciate the vertical stripe pattern on the back which has a slimming effect (a good look). The shorts have a wide knit waist band that’s made of this dri-fit material. Like most running shorts, they also have built-in underwear that are made of the same dri-fit material. I spent about 10 minutes on the rowing machine and another 15 minutes on the Stair Stepper – fortunately, the shorts didn’t ride up my thighs or annoyingly rub against my skin as I moved.
Overall, I’m very happy with my purchases. I do wish that the shorts had the same cool multicolored design as the sports bra. However, my friends always make fun of me for being too “matchy” so maybe it’s a good thing that the shorts are a simple navy with light pink trim. What do you think?
Along with my product review and I want to share this workout video. You guys know I’m always creating home workouts and on the lookout for new moves to incorporate into my routine. This Sexy Shoulders workout definitely gets my stamp of approval. I did the workout after my cardio and felt very toned and confident in my racer back tank top – I encourage you to give the Sexy Shoulder Workout a whirl!
Hopefully you guys enjoy the workout AND head to Target® to get some super cute C9 activewear. Personally, I felt good and still looked (pretty) good after finishing the Sexy Shoulder Workout – see my sweaty photos below. Lots of luv! xoxo, Brit

Happy Saturday Ladies and Gents! While I love you both equally, I designed this workout especially for the ladies. I think many of you can empathize with the how hard it is to find a challenging shoulder workout that isn’t catered towards bulking up (i.e. 4 set of 5 military press at 50 pounds). Come on, I don’t want to look like I can pick up my date, I just want to be able to rock a nice sleeveless blouse during my date. However, let me caveat my last statement by clarifying that even if we don’t want to bulk up, we must still lift a weight that challenges us. If it doesn’t challenge us, it doesn’t change us! Don’t be afraid to pick up a pair of 10-20 pound dumbbells when doing my “Sexy Shoulders” workout.
While I created this shoulder workout just for the ladies, it’s a great workout for men as well. Unlike my other arm workouts, this routine solely focuses on the shoulder muscles instead of the entire arm. It’s a great way to isolate the shoulders and really build some definition. For best results, do this workout 2 times per week along with 30 minutes of cardio for 4 weeks. Enjoy and let me know how it goes.
