Upper body strength exercises for global muscle groups

Posted on June 3, 2020 by

Useful for people who have had minimal exposure to regular upper body strength exercises and want some direction for home workouts or for those that want to add some variety into existing programs.

These simple and effective exercises use the strength foundations gained from weeks 1 to 3 and provide you with the opportunity to add further global muscle group strength exercises to your week 4 workout.

These exercises are best completed every second day for the nominated repetitions, with a one-minute rest between sets.

Take care to remain sitting upright without shoulders tilting forward and each exercise should be slow, controlled, and pain free.

For each exercise, aim to complete the movement for two seconds in each direction.
