If your goal is to carry all your groceries inside without making multiple trips, to have arms as sculpted as Angela Bassett’s, or improve your upper-body strength, you need to dedicate more time to strengthening your upper body. Generally speaking, consistently doing at least two strength sessions a week with an emphasis on upper-body strength, you should begin to see improvements in your strength in a minimum of six weeks.
There are a lot of great upper-body exercises you can do, and this guide is going to focus specifically on targeting your arms and back. This is not an upper-body workout, so don’t make the mistake of doing all these moves at once. If you want to put some of these exercises to the test, implement three to five moves from this list into your upper-body or total-body workout routine. Check them out ahead.
