A couple days ago, I shared my full leg workout so today I’m sharing my upper body workout.
There’s only one problem…
I’m not going to be repeating this routine again for a while.
Well, it just took way too long to complete and super long workouts while dieting is not the best idea.
For a while this year, I was doing 35-45 minute long workouts and getting great results.
And that was on 2,600 calories per day.
Now that I’m dieting, my recovery rate is much lower yet here I am doing longer workouts that are just likely to burn me out.
Even then, I’m going to share what I did in this workout anyways.
Complete Upper Body Workout
Incline Bench 4-6, 6-8, 8-10
Weighted Chins 4-6, 6-8, 8-10
Dumbbell Shoulder Press 2×8-12
Seated Machine Rows 2×8-12
Cable Bicep Curls 2×8-12
Triceps Pushdowns 2×8-12
Lateral Raises 2×8-12
The only exercise I didn’t follow my own routine on was weighted chin ups.
I ended up doing a 3 rep set, 5 rep set, and 10 rep set with varying weights.
And on the bottom of one of the heavy reps, I strained my forearm, which sucks but it’s actually healing up quickly.
That aside, the rest of the workout felt great but it was just too much.
If you’re eating at maintenance calories or above, this kind of routine can do wonders.
But if your goal is fat loss, stay tuned for an updated version of this routine coming soon.
