Why it’s important to have a strong upper body – besides looking good

Improving your upper body strength can also improve your skills in other training sessions. The majority of HIIT training and circuit workouts include upper body exercises, such as planks, push-ups or climbers, which require a good basic upper body strength. By strengthening your upper body, you can get the most out of these workouts without having to regress the movements.

Training Goals:

  • shoulders
  • arms
  • back
  • chest
  • abs

Tips for the 15 Min Upper Body Workout:

  • Avoid hollow back
  • Make sure your back is straight
  • Pay attention to the correct foot position
  • Pay attention to the correct foot load

Equipment: No equipment needed

We recommend switching up your workouts to give your muscles enough time to recover and to hit them from different angles.
