Last week I shared a Lower Body Burner workout, so I figured this week could use some upper body work. I like to keep things balanced, after all. If we’re going to fry the legs, we have to give the chest, back, shoulders, biceps, and triceps the same love. Yes, it’s love. All the workouts I give you are out of love. Even if you may hate me during them. Don’t worry, I can take it.
Onto the workout! We won’t be following the same 5 exercises, 5 sets, 25 reps layout of last week, but your muscles should still feel quite the challenge. You will perform three group sets. The challenge comes from doing group sets that work the same muscle groups.
- Group 1 = chest/chest/triceps
- Group 2 = back/back/biceps
- Group 3 = shoulders/shoulders/core
You will perform 2-4 sets of each group with 10 reps of the first exercise, 12 reps of the second exercise, and 15 reps of the third exercise. It adds up FAST.
