Here are 5 Best Upper Body Workouts To Get Ripped Fast

If you want to get ripped, these five upper body workout routines will help you achieve just that. And if you're not sure where to start, we've got you covered with our top 5 best upper body workouts for overweight men!

1. Burpees

Burpees are a total-body exercise that will help you to improve the overall strength of your body. The move targets the upper body -- arms, chest, and upper back -- throughout the pushup element, and hits the lower body -- quadriceps, hamstrings, calves, hips, and glutes -- during the up/down movement and jump. Warm up before starting your burpee routine as all of these muscles are going to take a beating, and you don't want an injury to sideline you.

 Burpee High-Intensity Workout

Start with 10 burpees, jump out of the bottom position, then immediately return to the ground and perform 5 squats and then pop back up into the starting position. Continue until you've done 20 total burpees. Rest for 1 minute, then repeat for two rounds.

Stand tall with your feet shoulder-width apart. Jump forward, keeping your knees bent, and land on your left foot.

Push off your right foot and hop back onto the front of your left leg so that your body forms an upside-down "V".

Land on your right leg, pushing off the floor. Then hop back to the starting position, jumping over your right leg.

Repeat on alternating sides until you complete 10 burpees. Rest for 2 minutes, then repeat for three rounds.

 

 

2. Pushup Plank

 If burpees don't work for you, try pushing yourself off the ground instead while holding a plank position. The plank adds extra stability and difficulty, making it one of the best upper body workouts for building lean muscle mass.

3. Deadlift

While deadlifts may seem overly intimidating at first, they're actually a great way to build a strong core. You might start with lighter weights (like 10 pounds) and progress until you find a weight that feels comfortable (around 20-30 pounds).

4. Squat Jump

Just like jumping jacks, jump squats are low-impact exercises that target your lower body without putting any strain on your joints. Try adding some plyometric jumps between sets to make these movements harder.

5. Pull-Ups

A pull-up requires minimal equipment, making it one of our favorite ways to exercise the upper body. If you have access to a garage gym, you should be able to find a pull-up bar for under $20. If you don't have a home gym, check out the pull-up bars featured in local fitness centers for cheap prices!
