Push Through Week 3 Of The Total Gym Body Transformation Challenge


It’s time to charge up, switch up, and add to your current workout routine! This is what is needed to keep your muscles guessing and your body changing to produce the results you are striving to achieve. You can do this by joining my 4-week Chest, Abs, & Back Challenge!


This challenge focuses on developing upper body strength, endurance, stamina, and muscular definition of your chest, back and core muscles with specific exercises.   You will be amazed at how much you can accomplish in a short time period with the right program and workout goals.




The Chest, Back, & Core Challenge is based on a 4-week training cycle that is created to produce results and improve your current fitness level. The challenge consists of varying reps/ sets and resistance levels to suit your fitness needs.  You will perform the workout provided in conjunction with your current routine.

Each week I will provide you with a slightly different set of exercises that target your chest, back, and core muscles in every range of motion. The intensity level should increase weekly to keep your body challenged and progressing with improvements. This adds variety in the routine, challenges the muscles, and increases strength development.


This is the 3nd week of the Chest, Abs, & Back Challenge, but it’s not too late to join in on the fun!  Just refer back to the first week’s post for the full program details and start from the beginning.  I recommend printing or saving the weekly workouts schedule to your phone/notebook for an easy reference.


Listed in the chart below are the instructions for the 3rd week’s challenge.
