Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: http://bit.ly/MMASurgeEp1 Muscles Worked This upright row exercise will work your upper back and shoulder muscles, including the upper trapezius and deltoids.? Getting Started Stand comfortably on the ground with your feet about shoulder-width apart. Grasp a dumbbell in each hand and let your arms rest in front of you. Your palms should be facing your body.? You can also substitute soup cans or water bottles in place of the dumbbells.? Using a heavier weight will overdevelop your trapezius muscle, which is the back muscle of your neck and shoulders.? Some women may not want this muscle to become larger than average, while some men may choose to strengthen this area. Use a weight that will fit your personal training preference but use caution not to strain your muscles.? Perform the Exercise? Once you're standing with the weights in your hands, you can start doing the upright row.? Begin with your arms at your sides and slightly in front of you.?* Raise the dumbbells by bringing your elbows straight up toward the ceiling.? * Your elbows should extend above your shoulders.? * Lower your arms and return to the starting position.? * If you feel any sharp pains in your shoulders or arms, stop the exercise immediately. * Repeat this movement in three to four sets with 15 repetitions. If you're using a heavier weight, you can reduce the repetitions to 10 to 12.? Disclaimer:?There is no "one size fits all" approach to exercise, diet or weight loss.
