Bye Bye Belly Upper Body – Emphasize

After several weeks of building strength and muscle, you’re ready to focus more energy on individual muscle groups. This workout hits all the good ones – Chest, back, shoulders, biceps, and triceps. Here’s what you need to know about how to choose your weights.

What You Need

Various weighted dumbbells (from 5-15 lbs), a mat and an exercise ball

Remember These Tips

With the focus on upper body, you’ll be doing more exercises for each muscle group. Keep in mind:

  • Soreness is normal – Whenever you change something in a workout, there’s a chance you’ll be sore. That’s normal. If you can’t lift your arms, you did too much and should back off the next time.
  • Do the best you can with the weights – Choosing weights can be a challenge and there’s no right way to do it. Make your best guess and go for it. If you feel like you could do a lot more reps, you should probably lift more.
