In this 10-minute class, Strength Coach and Olympic Weightlifter Jessica Taylor teaches you an upper body strength training routine using PowerBlock dumbbells. All you need for this class are dumbbells or resistance bands, space to workout, and an elevated surface like a chair or couch. Jessica also recommends using the Series-8 Interlocking mat for support. For this quick upper body routine, you'll do three sets of 10 exercises starting with a shoulder press and face pulls using resistance bands. Then you'll move into an elevated push-up using an elevated surface like a chair, couch, or weightlifting drop pads as shown in the class. You'll finish your upper body routine with a set of seated rows. This class is perfect for both beginners and those with advanced strength training.
