Intermediate Upper 2

This second set of intermediate upper body exercises are a little more challenging, however always remember to focus on good technique in order to progress your strength and fitness in a positive manner.

Do not begin any of these exercises until you can perform all of the beginner home exercises.

Always warm up and stretch prior and after your exercise regime.

If you can try and look at skipping as part of your warm-up.

Remember, progression is the key to increasing your fitness level - but always stay within your own limits.

By now if you have been working through all the home exercises, you should be at a good level of fitness.

Look at keeping up your good work at aim to perform 12 - 15 repetitions of each exercise, with those working on a time basis, look at spending 30 - 45 seconds per exercise.

There are a lot of dip / push up exercises within this section, so if you intend to run through all of the exercises twice, it would aid you to spend a few minutes stretching your chest and tricep (back of arm) muscles and any other muscles that may feel a little tight.

Avoid training muscles that are sore - you can always work out using different muscle groups instead.

There is nothing wrong with swapping exercises around if you feel that there are either to many push up style exercises for you - remember the key to your success is to work at your own pace.
