Upper Body Sculpt #5
This workout focuses mostly on chest, biceps, and triceps.
But it also has a little shoulders and back too because I am a sucker for shapely shoulders and a strong back (and I REALLY want to be able to do pull-ups again!).
And of course 10 minutes of abs! Because we want that strong core!!! And a six-pack!
This is a great workout to do at a gym, but I show you modifications in the video so you can do it at home too.
