Basics Of Upper Body Training

 

Growing or strengthening your upper body is fairly simple when done right. There’s a few key principles that should be followed to sure effective training though.

Including a horizontal press and pull as well as a vertical press and pull in your training is key. Examples could be a bench press, pull ups, overhead press, and bent over rows.

Once completing those movements, move on to exercises that supplement them such as incline bench press, dips, lat pulldowns, or even barbell curls. Throw in a few more movements such as the ab rollout or face pulls for the smaller muscles, or ones that aren’t worked as much in the other exercises, and you have a solid training program for your upper body.

Stick with 3-5 sets of 5-12 reps on the main movements and 2-4 sets of 8-15 reps for the supplementary exercises most of the time for 2-3 days per week and you should make great progress! 💪

Obviously there will be differences in everyone’s program based on where they’re at training wise and other factors, but for most people looking to build their upper body, a template like this is a great place to start.
