Here is am Arm Routine consisting of Bicep and Triceps exercises.
Aim for a weight where you can just do 10 reps or so. Don’t choose to high a weight to start, because even though this will seem easy at first, the longer it goes on the harder it gets. This workout should tax your arms.
Be sure not to overdo it the first time you try this routine. Start with a lighter weight than you may really need and work your way up.
SUPERSETS, 1 min rest between sets (use your Gymboss), Aim for 10 – 12 reps each except for the dips, do 20 of those each set.
Bench Dips – Can be weighted – feet up on chair (20 reps) 4 sets

OK, that said, ever tried Tabata? Are you doing some tabata routines and are looking for some new ones to try? We just read a great article from MensHealth that includes 3 different Tabata “Finisher” workouts. A finisher workout is one you do at the end of whatever workout you have already done to completely deplete your muscles, so you have that “OMG, I can’t move another muscle” feeling. Which is just the BEST feeling ever!
You can do this tabata routine as a finisher, or simple as your workout for the day. Just repeat the 4 minute routine 3 – 4 times for a full 20 minute workout. So these 3 routines include 2 different exercises each, for a total of 6 exercises to choose from. You can mix and match them to your liking.
Remember Tabata is 20 sec on, 10 sec off for 8 rounds. (4 min total) Use your Gymboss to time these.
Here are the 3 different routines with a handy dandy video showing you how to do each exercise (Click the link to watch the video):

Looking to rev up your workout? Try some of these body-weight exercises by Leigh Lowery. Pick a couple and try some Tabata style workouts of 20 sec on, 10 sec off for 8 rounds. Try doing 3-4 sets. And although this video is called “44 Best Body-weight Exercises for Women”, men will be more than challenged as well. Good Luck!
This workout incorporates 4 exercises for a great overall workout for beginners. Set your Gymboss to one interval of 30 sec for 15 rounds. You will do each of the 4 exercises for 30 sec and then get a 30 sec rest at the end, so this would be 5 rounds. You will then repeat this 5 round sequence 2 more times, so 15 rounds total.
