Here we go!! Upper body day is here and what an experience this session will be!

Every muscle in the upper body will be placed under tension today with a combination of bodyweight and dumbbell movements all within complexes involving 2 exercises but formatted to hit specific areas of the upper body so a balanced session overall!

The timer will be on for only 2 minutes per complex so shorter complexes today with 30 seconds rest inbetween each complex!

There are only 2 exercises within each complex and each exercise will simply be performed for either x5, x10 or x15 reps! It will be on screen the entire time of the complex showing the reps!

Where any movements involving hopping back you can absolutely simply step back into plank as apposed to hopping!

You may notice these are lighter weights compared to if We was completing IRON Series workout and infact it is half of what We sometime use in chest press… but due to the fact it is positioned post decline push ups and shoulders which involves much triceps, upper chest and front delts, these 10kgs in the chest press complex will feel VERY heavy for within the first minute!

The aim of Fuel is to not focus solely on cardio and higher intensity intervals for example but to still incorporate elements of traditional resistance training to promote building and/or maintaining of muscle depending on your energy balance.

The dumbbells Content Creator is using for your reference are 2 x 10kg and 2 x 4kg.

Aside from dumbbells, all you will need is a mat and a chair/bench for decline push ups and dips! Content Creator is performing dips on the chair today but absolutely bring those dip bars out if you have them!
