Expand your chest and bulk up your triceps—all with this one four-move upper-body circuit.
Take on six rounds of dumbbell bench presses, band-resisted flyes, close-grip incline pushups, and crossbody mountain climbers to target each individual “push” muscle group in one comprehensive workout. The bench presses will warm up your entire chest, while the band-resisted flyes and the close-grip incline pushups will isolate your pecs and triceps, respectively. Add in some mountain climbers for a supreme calorie-burner. Whether it’s beach season or sweater weather, your upper body will be ready.
You’ll do this workout as a circuit, meaning you’ll complete each exercise consecutively without rest. Once you’ve finished all exercises, rest for 30 to 60 seconds. Repeat the entire circuit for 4 to 6 rounds.
Depending upon your ability, you may shorten or lengthen the rest period. You may also complete more or fewer rounds.
