Go-To Upper Body Hex Dumbbell Workout

Why is this our go-to upper body workout? Because its a diverse upper body workout! The movements are primary upper-body exercises which can support many type of goals!

Start with a quick stretch of the muscles you'll be using during your workout or if you've got the time get in a full body stretch. It's easy to forget about stretching and warming up, but warming up your muscles and joints and increasing your mobility will only better your performance.


Now onto the workout, this upper body workout is our go to workout for that feel good, upper body pump! (you just can't beat it, if you know, you know)
You can do this workout in the gym or at home. You don't need a 5* home gym to do this workout in the house, you just need some space, a seat and a set of hex dumbbells.
