Workout of the Week
Upper Body Day

Instructions
Find a space that is clear in front, behind, and to each side of you to avoid injury. Perform a warm-up that consists of an activity that gradually increases your heart rate and moves your joints through a moderate to large range of motion such as the one below. Perform each exercise in the warm-up for 45 seconds.

It is encouraged that you modify each exercise to a version that is best for you.

Workout
Complete the given number of repetitions of each exercise in Upper Body Set 1, and then repeat the set 2-3 times. Next, complete the given number repetitions of each exercise in Upper Body Set 2 and repeat the set 2-3 times. Take 30-60 seconds rest between each full set repetition.

To increase intensity and resistance feel free to add weight. To decrease intensity and resistance feel free to remove weight.

Equipment needed: A set (or multiple sets) of dumbbells or objects of varying weight.
