HEALTH

Surprisingly, strengthening the upper body has many more advantages than just giving you that puffed out chest or a Superman look that women adore. It will boost your heart health, straighten your posture, and protect your bones. However, creating a well-rounded upper body workout can be difficult: we all want big biceps, strong chests, and lean tris, but we don’t know where to start, or what exercises will get the job done as fast as possible. With all of the fitness blogs, personal trainers and bodybuilders online, there are a variety of exercises to choose from, but we want to help narrow down your choice to the best. Listed below are the most effective upper body exercises that will strengthen your biceps, triceps, shoulders, and chest.
