How to use work up in a sentence?

  1. Kristy Ray:

    We don’t want her to do anything strenuous until we get a cardiac work up on her, we’re scared. We’re scared it’s going to happen again. The chances are probably slim, but if it’s any chance we don’t want to take it.

  2. Tom Felton:

    Jason Isaacs always looked after me very well. Alan Rickman, Michael Gambon, Helena Bonham Carter - they're all wonderful people and very helpful and inspiring. I bored Alan Rickman for hours about Robin Hood. It was one of my favorite films when I was younger and I asked how he did certain scenes. He was very patient and charming. It took me six years to work up the courage to ask him. Helena gave me advice about crying in a scene. She said tell your brain you're not allowed to cry and then it's more likely to happen. No one was difficult. You hear stories about actors who demand their coffee to be served at a certain temperature but on Harry Potter if you wanted a cup of tea you had to get it yourself.

  3. Blake Sheltonsurprised:

    I’m doing my normal, you know, what I think is rockin’. Standing up there with my acoustic guitar in front of my stand and singing my songs, i had my band work up one of her songs, ‘Hella Good.’ And I thought ‘Man, that’d be so cool to have her come out and surprise.’ It’s the worst thing I could have done because all it did was make me look terrible.

  4. Marion Roaman:

    There are two great workouts you can do. When you slide back and climb with some resistance you’re building your glute muscles, which just lifts your butt up a little bit. And then when you’re standing out of the saddle you’re really lifting the work up, so you’re lifting your toosh up and at the same time, engaging your abdominals.

  5. Loretta Mester:

    I don't have to say today, in fact, I really think it's important that we really look at the incoming information that we are going to get as we work up to the end-of-the month meeting.
