Upper body workout di Ryan Klarenbach
We asked our PT Chris Appleton to give us some advice on each exercise.
Our PT suggests 30 seconds and 30 seconds of rest for 3 sets of each exercise.
Plank to Bear Plank
'The plank exercise is quite tough as it is and is a great exercise for targeting a large number of muscles and improving strength. By adding the plank, you will add additional tension to the core stabilizer muscles by holding your body still during the movement. It is also useful for strengthening the lower back. "
Shoulder Taps to Staggered Push-Ups
'This exercise adds more and more work to the core to stabilize the body, shoulder touches must be performed while limiting the movement of the torso. This movement adds an explosive element to the movement as you work on different areas of the chest, all in one movement. "
Push-ups a diamante
'With this press up you are isolating more of the triceps and the pectoral muscle which is most prominent in your chest. Diamond push-ups work the triceps, chest muscles, especially the major and anterior deltoids. The rectus abdominis, obliques, glutes, and quadriceps act as stabilizers to keep the body in a straight line. "
Reverse Plank Tricep Dips
"This exercise will strengthen the lower back, core, and support muscles to help stabilize the body, including the legs and glutes, but you are now isolating your triceps more with dips and further strengthening your shoulders at the same time."
Training the upper body can always be a push, especially without the gym equipment to help create that extra resistance, for that explosive power. With the right exercises and a little creativity, you can get a powerful workout wherever you are.
Try challenging yourself by doing one exercise after another and turning it into a circuit. Maybe even try increasing the time of each exercise to make the workout more challenging.
