Upper-body Exercise Circuit you can do at Home

By Meagan Kline

Earlier in the My Heart Challenge I shared a lower body exercise circuit. This week I thought it appropriate to share an upper body workout, targeting the biceps, triceps, shoulders and back muscles. It's a simple circuit that you can do at home, so check it out and add it into your exercise routine.

If you have resistance tubes or bands, those would be great. Free weights would work as well. 

Here's the circuit you can follow:

 - 8-10 Biceps curls

 - Rest 10-30 seconds

 - 8-10 Triceps extensions

 - Rest 10-30 seconds

 - 8-10 Shoulder presses

 - Rest 10-30 seconds

 - 8-10 Upright rows

Rest 30-60 seconds before repeating the circuit. Do 2-3 sets.

In this short video, I demonstrate each of the exercises so you can see the proper way to do them.
