WHAT IT IS
This 30-minute workout is all about sculpting a stronger, more defined upper body. This upper body weight workout will strengthen your biceps, triceps, chest, shoulders and back while pushing you to your limits. The effectiveness of this workout comes from performing supersets–two exercises in a row for the same muscle group with little rest in-between. You’ll do these two exercises for the same muscle group two times in a row, then take a quick active recovery before moving on to the next focused area.
Follow along with Chris as she guides you through each move in this upper body weight workout. She’ll also provide motivation and modifications every step of the way; this leaves you to focus on your form and get the most out of each move.
Get down to business by strengthening your chest muscles first. You’ll begin with the king of upper body moves: the push-up! Then grab your dumbbells for chest-flys to complete your superset. After two sets of chest-flys you’ll move on to renegade rows and wide and high flys to strengthen your back. As you move through this upper body weight workout you’ll even discover some of the moves challenge your core as well.
Remember that this upper body weight workout is all about muscle fatigue–grab the heaviest set of dumbbells you can.
