Canadian fitness influencer Victoria Grimes showed fans how they can train their chest muscles at home in the most recent video on her Instagram page. Dressed in a blue sports bra and a matching pair of leggings, Victoria started her workout with a set of cable flys using a long resistance band. She attached the band to a door and pulled each end of it down while leaning forward.
Then she moved on to doing standing cable crossovers. Although majority of her lower body was out of the frame, she seemed to have placed the band under her feet as she alternated raising its handles in a diagonal motion. Her caption recommended doing eight to 10 repetitions per arm for four sets.
Victoria ditched the exercise band in the next clip to perform a set of chest presses with a pair of dumbbells. She lay on the floor face up for the exercise and kept her knees raised as she pushed the weight upward with her elbows turned out. Her caption recommended four sets of 20 reps each.
Victoria tackled a set of low-pulley cable flys next. She attached the exercise band to the base of a door and kneeled in front of it. She then raised the handles of the band upward. She suggested four sets of 15 reps for this one.
She started doing kneeling dumbbell incline presses next. While holding one dumbbell in front of her chest with both hands, Victoria pressed the weight upward and pulled downward to complete one rep. For this exercise, Victoria’s caption recommended four sets of 15 reps each.
After that, Victoria ended her circuit with a set of standard pushups. She also added two bonus videos, one of her cute puppies and the other demonstrating how she got the exercise band on the door.
