Workout of the Week
Upper Body Strength 2

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

Workout: Perform each exercise for 8-12 repetitions and repeat for 3-4 sets. Rest between each set for 1-2 minutes as needed. It is encouraged that you modify each exercise to a version that is best for you. This workout can be done with or without weights.
