Get the upper hand

Emphasise your upper body muscles while stripping away fat to build your best ever body

Usually when guys focus on their upper body it’s at the expense of their legs. But with this four-week workout, you don’t need to be guilty of neglecting your pins because you’ll work them during the two weekly full-body sessions included here alongside the workouts that target everything above the waist. The variables have been carefully calculated to also get your heart rate up, meaning you’ll get a great fat loss effect and give a defined look to your newly-crafted chest, shoulders, arms and abs.

In each week of this month’s four-week workout plan you’ll do four sessions, two of which (workouts 1 and 3) are whole-body sessions while the other two (2 and 4) focus on your upper body. The emphasis in all four workouts is on working multiple muscle groups with a hard and intense approach – think high reps and short rest periods – in order to make every move of every session as effective as possible, helping you build muscle and burn body fat in less time.

All the workouts are made up of five moves. The first two moves of all four workouts are big, compound lifts done in a superset, which means you do all the reps of move 1A then go straight into move 1B, resting only after that set is complete. The final three moves of each session are straight sets, so you’ll do all the sets and reps of each move, then move on to the next one.
