Upper Body Exercises


Updated July 09, 2011

Walking does little for your upper body, so it is important to add upper body workouts 2 to 3 times per week to help keep your body in balance. It is also good to vary your workout. You may want to do three different upper body workouts each week. Or you may do one for 3 to 5 sessions and then switch to another one.
