BEST Upper Body Bodyweight Workout

YES, you can totally get fit using just your bodyweight. You can also use a few handy tools to help accelerate and progress your bodyweight training! I wanted to share with you the BEST upper body bodyweight workout you can do using bars! You don’t HAVE to use bars (I go over what you can do instead) but I love to use the bars! (you can learn more about the bars I use HERE).

Best Upper Body Bodyweight Workout #1: Basic Push Ups For Beginners

Get a sturdy chair, a low countertop, a lowered squat rack… or your bars! Start by standing with your feet placed slightly apart, front leg bent slightly, with your hands placed on the bars (or whatever you are using). Lift your body up and down and be sure to switch legs. Even if you’re advanced, this is great for a warm up. Do these for about 30 seconds.

Best Upper Body Bodyweight Workout #2: Standard Push Ups

This one is great if your wrists are sensitive. Having the angle of the Lebert EQualizer really helps to relieve pain from your wrists because you’re grabbing rather than placing. Extend your feet out behind you and do standard push ups. If you need to make it a little easier, you can definitely drop down to your knees in this same position. Do these for about 30 seconds.

Best Upper Body Bodyweight Workout #3: Tricep Press

You can use a chair, a lowered squat rack, or the Lebert EQualizer bars for this one. I also like to fold a mat for my knees. Place all of your weight on your knees so your toes are slightly lifted off the ground. Press your hands into the bar and press down into your triceps. You should be feeling your weight in your triceps. Make sure to keep your back flat and your core tight. Do these for 30 seconds.

Best Upper Body Bodyweight Workout #4: Tricep Dips

Take it to a standing position and using a bench, a chair, a lowered squat rack, or Lebert, standing with your feet on the ground, lower your weight down working your triceps in a tricep dip. Another more advanced option is to completely lift your feet off the ground while doing the tricep dips. If you’re REALLY daring and strong you can bring your legs out in front of you while you do the tricep dips. This will work your abs a ton, too! Do whichever version is challenging for you for 30 seconds.  It doesn’t take a whole lot to feel it — even if all you can do are small movements, do it!

Best Upper Body Bodyweight Workout #5: Modified Chin Up

Take it to the ground and grab your bar. Walk your feet out in front of you and lift yourself up using your back and chest and lower back down in a controlled manner. This is a great way to introduce yourself to a chin-up or a pull-up! If this is too easy for you, lift one leg at a time and up the intensity! Do these for 30 seconds.

And you did it!!!! A super short workout that WORKS — our muscles are on fire and all we used is our own bodyweight! If you need MORE of a workout, repeat the sequence. Do whatever is intense for YOU.

Be Happy… Be Healthy… Be FIT!

    Hi Natalie
    I’m a 5”4” 53 year old border line diabetes, who has tried so many things, I also suffer from depression so when things don’t work for me it takes me a while to get back up and try something else. So as you can guess I am now at my biggest weight of 243.6lb I’m looking at this program of yours and it sounds good but it also sounds like others I’ve tried I want to keep the weight off. My plan is to start this come the New Years. I’m cooking to much to even try and my will power right now is at a low this time of year lost my Mom and then my Father around this time so the holidays are not the same.
    Just want to give you a little information on me and what it is that has been putting a bump in my workout plans.
    Wish me luck .
