Upper Body Sculpt #2
Want great arms?
Give this workout a try!
This is another well-rounded upper body workout that anyone can do, from beginner to advanced. The exercises are pretty straigh-forward but can be modified and adapted to make it easier or harder. As usual, you will have a 1-minute cardio interval between sets. Just because I know you want it. And so do I.
