Upper Body Workout

Want to strengthen your upper body but don’t know where to start? Don’t worry, down below you’ll find the ultimate upper body workout that works just about every muscle in your upper body. Now by the term upper body I am talking about the torso and the back. The neck and arms aren’t included but still some of these exercise below will have an effect on those muscles.

Single-Arm Barbell Rows: This is a great workout because it targets so many different parts of the upper body. The lats, middle back, shoulders, biceps and triceps all get a workout when you do single arm rows with the barbell.

Elevated Pushups: If you haven’t thought of doing elevated pushups before, now is the time to get in on this terrific upper chest exercise. If you want to get the same effect but use a weight bench and a bar instead, try doing the incline bench press.
