Today’s fitness tips are targeting upper body muscles without using external weights. With these exercises, you can use your own body weight for resistance. Keep in mind, these moves are not all-inclusive, meaning there are plenty of other exercises that are not mentioned. These are just meant to give you some moves to try. You can combine them together, or combine them with moves for other body parts. Whatever you decide to do, be sure to WARM UP FIRST. We will be doing a video later that talks about different ways to warm up your muscles.
The attached video has the following exercise options:
- Chest Squeeze
- Pull backs
- Biceps curls
- Overhead Triceps
- Overhead Press
- Shoulder shrugs
- Triceps kickbacks
- Bent Over Rows
- Reverse Fly
- Reverse High Five
- Row with Twist
The following are additional exercises that were not discussed in today’s video, but we will talk about them tomorrow.
- Front Shoulder Raise
- Side Shoulder Raise (with straight or bent arms)
- Combine alternating Front and Side Shoulder Raises
- Front Raise, move to side, then down followed by Side Shoulder Raise, move to front, then down
- V-Lift (shoulder raise at an angle – arms make a “V” shape)
