Upper Body Exericse

The difference between the sexes really comes out when it comes to upper body strength training. Men often heft the heaviest weights they can find in an attempt to build bigger biceps while women try to skate by with 3-pound weights because they're scared of getting too muscular. The truth is that women don't build muscle mass the way guys do; for the most part, they can challenge themselves with weights and build significant strength without their size getting out of control. The men, meanwhile, need to realize they don't need to go as heavy as possible at every workout - muscles respond to changes in approach. There are a lot of muscles in the upper body and nearly infinite ways to work them. These links are really just a start. Use them as inspiration and information - then get to it!

Upper Body Strength Training
This page - from an aerobics studio in Kentucky - has some good tips that will help make your upper body workouts (or any strength training workouts, really) more effective. There are also instructions for a number of upper body exercises but, unfortunately, no pictures.
Perfect Push Ups
Push ups are one of the best upper body exercises you can do - and no equipment is needed. This article explains how to do them properly.
Chest Muscles
Here are a bunch of chest exercises, done with free weights, machines and cable. There are photographs along with the instructions.
Back Exercise Menu
If your back is already healthy and you're ready for more of a challenge, then these exercises will keep you busy for quite a while.
Shoulder Workout for Women
Sometimes women don't realize that it's not chest or arm strength that's keeping them back - it's shoulder strength. Here are a couple of exercises to build up those shoulder muscles.
Shoulder Exercise Menu
Okay, so you're not a girl, and/or you don't have bird-like shoulders and you want me to get to the real stuff? Here it is.
Bicep Exercise Explanations
Here are your basic bicep exercises, all in one page.
With these exercises you never have to let the back of your arms get flabby and floppy, even if you don't particularly want to "get big triceps fast!"
Hand, Wrist and Shoulder Exercises
These exercises are basically remedial, or for older exercisers. Keep in mind, though, that the hands and wrists really don't get enough attention in strength training - if you spend a lot of time on the computer (and if you're reading this, there's a good chance you do), you want to give these small but crucial muscles some attention.
