Upper body exercises

Upper body resistance training exercises focus on the chest, back, shoulder and arms. When selecting weights you should be able to comfortably perform 10-12 repetitions with the chosen weights, once two sets of 15-20 repetitions can easily be performed at a given weight an increased weight may be chosen. During all strength based exercises it is important that you perform movements in a slow and controlled manner, establish a breathing rhythm and do not hold your breath during the exercises.
