Three Bodyweight Upper Body Workouts
1. Upper Body Push/Pull:
Set a timer for 20 minutes and alternate sets of:
Here you basically just do a set of dips and then a set of pull ups, going back and forth, writing or remembering what total reps you hit. This focuses on building muscle and strength in the upper body, is best to rest till you are ready to go to the next exercise and get clean solid reps instead of rampaging through it. If your pull ups are significantly weaker than your dips, you can choose to do more sets of dips before going back at the pull ups again instead of alternating, this gives a chance for active rest for the pull ups. Make sure to record your total reps and aim to beat it next time you do this work out again
2. 100 Pull ups:
Simply total 100 Pull ups, do all kinds of pull ups, wide grip, chin ups, parallel grip etc. Change it up as much as possible. Time how long it took you. If this takes you way too long maybe start off with totalling 50 or even 30. Always track the time to see how long it takes you and adjust your rest time and volume accordingly.
3. Basic Push up and Trunk:
Do 10 Push ups, flip to your back and do 10 V ups. Repeat for 10 sets
This is a good one for beginners, either do it non-stop or take a short rest in between. Adjust the reps if you are finding it too easy, working up to 15-20 reps should be challenging for most.
