5 Best Upper Body Workouts for Women

    Biceps Curl

    Biceps Curl is the most important exercise in toning up your front arms. Hold your body in a wide-legged position with your arms at your sides, the workout can be felt through your center and front arms.

    Bow and Arrow

    This workout targets all the muscles present in the upper, middle back, shoulder and arms. Since this version involves a side lunge, it strengthens your entire middle and lower body also.

    X Raise

    X Raise is one of the best workouts for shoulder and upper back. During this workout, your core muscles work hard to keep the rest of the body still as you move your arms.

    Push Up

    Push Ups is one of the best workouts that targets your body overall. The major effect of this workout would be on your chest, shoulders, arms and core. Place your feet widely to keep your body stable and it will be easier to press upward.


    Dip is another upper-body move that targets the triceps, shoulders and chest muscles. The exerciser's hands support his entire body weight. The palms should be placed on the floor on either side of your hips. Lift your butt off the floor until its level with your hips and parallel to the floor. Bend your elbows to lower your butt and then straighten them back.
