RESISTANCE TRAINING - UPPER BODY

  

I like to do some workout ever day. To get a strong and healthy body you need to exercise regurarly and varied all year around. You need to combine soft and restorative training with really tough and challenging exercises.

This is a mini weekend workout of only 5 exercises, do 20 reps of each exercise for 3 rounds. It won't take you a long time and the only thing you need is a resistance band, but I guarantee you will feel it the day after!

STANDING ROW

Press your hands out and pull the band towards your chest. Drawing the shoulder blades together. you should feel it on the outside of your shoulders.

 

SITTING BICEPS CURL

Knee down and grab the band in that same hand where you have your foot forward. Lift and hold back when you release. Always work with resistance.

SINGLE STANDING ROW

Fold one side of the rubber band around a pole or similar. Hold it with your “resting hand”. Pull straight back, and hold back when releasing. You should feel it in your shoulders and upper chest.

 

SINGLE STANDING TRICEPS PRESS

Fold one side of the rubber band around a pole or similar. Hold it with your “resting hand”. Have your back against the pole and pull the rubber band forward. Elbow close to your ear. Hold back with resistance when releasing.

STANDING SHOULDER PRESS

Place the rubber band on the outside of your wrist. Arms are straight. Pump/press out and hold back when releasing. Pump pump pump.
