How do you build upper body strength?


Answer by  Feasel (1766)

Doing more upper body exercises will help, things like push ups or chin ups. If you're unable to do either, try lifting some light dumbbells.

You can build upper body strength without equipment by doing pushups and sit-ups. Or you can do bench-press, pull-downs, curls and tricep-extensions with weights and/or machines. Ultimately, the weights will make you stronger, though, as body-weight exercises are limited to how little leverage you can give yourself.

The way I build upper body strength is usually by doing an incline bench. You'll usually find one at a local gym or a weight class in high school or college. Military press and Incline presses are my favorite for working my upper body strength, and if you don't mind me saying. Making love.

Upper body strength can be developed either by performing body weight excercises such as push-ups, chin-ups, pull-ups, and dips or with resistance training exercises that utilize machines and weights.
