Before You Begin
Following a 1-minute warmup, this workout is is made up of 8 unique upper body moves split into two sets – a Push (chest, shoulders & triceps) set and a Pull set (back & biceps). Within the sets there are 4 exercises and they are done all on one side at a time. The purpose of the workout is to strength train your upper body muscles unilaterally which requires more effort from your core. I used an 8 lb dumbbell.
