For the last few months, we’ve been working with L.A.-based trainer Julie Diamond to perfect our workouts. In this fourth part of our video series, Diamond and The Fine Line founder Sue Cowie demonstrate the moves for an easy but effective upper-body workout.
They start by working the big opposing muscle groups of the upper body: chest and back.
They then move on to another pair of opposing muscles: triceps and biceps. These muscles are smaller, so you’ll likely need lighter weights than for chest and back.
They finish their upper-body workout by strengthening the three muscles of the shoulder, starting with a classic shoulder press for the medial deltoid and then doing front arm raises for the anterior deltoid and bent-over lateral arm raises for the posterior deltoid.
