The Upper Body Blast Workout

It’s that time of year again: The days are getting longer, our sleeves and pants are getting shorter, and bathing suit season is right around the corner. It’s time, therefore, to kick our workouts into high gear so we can look our best while wearing the least.

An upper body workout to help you tighten and tone for the summer season, this circuit-style routine hits all five major muscle groups of the upper body: Chest, back, shoulders, biceps, and triceps:

Here’s a breakdown of the exercises shown in the video:

  1. Dumbbell Chest Press
  2. Dumbbell Triceps Extension
  3. Overhead dumbbell Shoulder Press
  4. Dumbbell Biceps Curl
  5. Single Arm Dumbbell Row

You will perform ten repetitions of each exercise for two complete circuits. It should only take around 9–15 minutes to complete, yet these tried-and-true exercises are sure to sculpt a great-looking upper body. You can do this workout three times a week on non-consecutive days to get your body beach-ready!
