Spring Exercise Challenge Day 11: Upper Body
Welcome to day 11 of the Spring Exercise Challenge!
Lengthen and lean your body with a good upper body workout.
A good upper body workout will effectively workout your arms, chest and back. You can use free weights and machines at the gym or you can workout at home and still get an effective upper body workout.
Begin by warming up with 5 to 10 minutes of light cardio to get your muscles ready to train. Doing an upper body workout 3x per week is recommended with a day rest in between workouts to give your muscles an opportunity to rest. During 'off' days, train the opposite muscle groups ie lower body workout.
Below is an upper body workout that can be done at home with just a mat and pair dumbbells.
Tip: Water bottles or canned goods can be substituted for dumb bells if you do not have any.
For today's challenge complete or schedule a day to complete an upper body workout.
