These exercises are useful for people who have had minimal exposure to regular upper body strength exercises and want some direction for home workouts.
It’s also great for those that want to add some variety into existing programs. These simple and effective exercises will provide the foundation to your strength program and will be complemented by our four-week series of upper body exercises.
These are best completed every second day for the nominated repetitions, with one minute between sets. Take care to remain sitting upright, without shoulders tilting forwards, ensuring each exercise is slow, controlled and pain-free. Aim for two seconds in each direction.
