Upper Body Circuit Workout

UpperBodyWorkout

If you need a quick and efficient upper body workout that you can complete almost anywhere, you’re in luck. All you’ll need is a pair of dumbbells and a little bit of space.

Complete 12-15 reps of each of the following exercises before immediately moving to the next. Continue until you have completed the circuit 3 times.

Bent Over Row:

Stand with your feet hip-width distance apart, holding a dumbbell in each
hand. Bend slightly at the knees and hinge at the waist. Let your arms hang in front of you with your palms facing each other. Bend your elbows, pulling the dumbbells up toward your torso. Squeeze your shoulder blades together until your elbows form a 90-degree angle. Hold for a moment and then slowly release your arms to the starting position.

Bicep Curl & Press:

Stand with your feet directly under your hips, with your arms by your side. Holding a dumbbell in each hand with your palms facing out in front of you, bend your elbows to
bring the weights to your shoulders. Keep your arms moving upward, straightening your arms directly above you while turning your palms to face back out in front of you. Lower your arms back to the top of your bicep curl and then slowly lower back out to the starting position.

Push-Up:

Get into plank position with your hands on two dumbbells placed slightly wider than
shoulder-width apart. Lower your body until your chest reaches the floor, keeping your body in a straight line the entire time. Keep your core engaged as you push yourself back up into the starting position.

Bent Over Raise:

Stand with your feet hip-width distance apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand. Bend slightly at the knees and hinge at the waist. Let your arms hang in front of you with your palms facing each other. With only a slight bend in the elbows, lift the weights up and out
until your upper arms are parallel with the floor. Hold for a moment and then slowly release your arms to the starting position.

Plank Tricep Kickback:

Get into plank position with your each of your hands on a dumbbell. Pull the dumbbell in your left hand upward, bending at the elbow. Hold for a moment, then kick your arm back to form a straight line. To get back into the starting position, bend your arm back and place the dumbbell on the floor. Repeat with the other arm to complete one rep.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

Bumble Bee Seafood Logo

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
