5 tips to improve your upper body and ultimately help carry through life
KETTLEBELL Z PRESS
Kettlebells are great, as they allow you to train unilaterally. They are also great to promote a neutral wrist position, because when you insert the hand properly, the handle and bell will prevent your wrist from hyperextending.
- OVERHEAD PRESS
Pressing the bar overhead is one of the most useful upper body exercises you can do. This highly effective exercise involves the entire body. Your feet, legs, glutes, core, abs, hips, ankles and wrists help to stabilise the body whilst your shoulders, upper chest, back and arms press the bar overhead.
- Strict Pull Ups
When it comes to upper body strength, the humble pull up is a tried and tested bodyweight exercise that can significantly help you to enhance your abilities. Wide grip will especially target your upper back, while chin ups with a closer grip are a great way to develop your biceps.
- PUSH UPS
The push up is a classic exercise, building strength, muscle and power. Different variations of push ups will strengthen your core and back as well as your chest, back, shoulders, arms and wrists.
- ARNOLD PRESS
The Arnold Press is a variation of the traditional shoulder press and is named after Arnold Schwarzenegger, who used the exercise to help build all three of the main muscles in the shoulders. This exercise requires a rotational movement throughout the press portion of the lift, which increases shoulder stability and targets the inside shoulder muscles at the bottom of the lift.
- BACK EXTENSIONS
Another simple but highly effective exercise. Perform these slowly with control. These target the lower back are used by top Powerlifters and CrossFit athletes.
