Upper Body Exercises


Row Variations


This is a must-have on your upper body exercise list if you want to have a strong back, as well as strong shoulders and core. There are different row variations and we'll show you how to do some of them like the single arm row and the wide row int he first 30 seconds of this video. The basic row exercise is quite easy especially for beginners. 

Just grab the suspension straps with your palms facing each other. Tighten your core and squeeze your shoulder blades while rowing up, making sure your body is in a straight line. If you want to increase the level of difficulty, you can do the single arm row by rowing one arm at a time while maintaining proper form. 


Reverse Fly

This exercise targets your deltoids or your rear shoulders and the upper back muscles which can help improve balance and poor posture, as well as prevent back injuries and neck and shoulder pain. 

To do this, hold the suspension straps in each hand, with your palms facing each other. Keep your body in a straight line and open your arms out to the side, with only a slight bend in the elbows. Slowly pull yourself up, keeping your body in a straight line. Pause at the top and slowly return to starting position by lowing back down, bringing your hands together. Make sure to squeeze your shoulder blades together during this exercise. 


Chest Press

The chest press exercise helps build a stronger upper body and promotes stability. This also engages your core.

To do this, grab the suspension straps in each band and stand facing away from the anchor point. Lean forward, arms extended and make sure your body is in a straight line while keeping your core engaged. Bend your elbows as you lower yourself down until your chest is in line with the handles. Push yourself up slowly and return to starting position and repeat.


Tricep Extension

This upper body exercise mainly targets your triceps, as well as your shoulders and core. Like the chest press, this exercise also promotes stability and balance while suspended. It also builds a stronger core and is an excellent functional exercise.

Hold the suspension straps in each hand and stand facing away from the anchor. Position yourself and make sure the straps are taut while you preform the movement. Extend your arms overhead and bend your elbows 90-degrees. Lower your body and maintain a tight core, keeping your arms in a fixed position. Press yourself back up to starting position and repeat.
