This Workout of the Week is an Upper Body focused workout that will push muscle growth and help boost your metabolism.
We kick off the workout of the week with some hypertrophy work. We also will include some mobility work in between sets.
Finally, we wrap things up with some metabolic conditioning!
I always suggest starting your workout with a proper warm up. Fellow fitness expert Matt Ogus has an awesome video walking you through an Upper Body warm up. Check it out below
After we are all warmed up – lets jump into our first superset.
