Bored of Bicep Curls? Try This Quick, Creative Upper Body Workout

When you picture upper body workouts, bicep curls probably come to mind. However, there are a lot of ways to move your body that promote upper body strength outside of the common dumbbell move. If you're looking for a whole host of creative moves to feel stronger and increase your upper body strength, check out the latest episode of Good Moves with, NYC-based trainer, Traci Copeland. In this 20 minute episode, she takes you through some really fun moves that will leave you feeling stronger. The best part about the workout? It's creative and quick.

In this session, Copeland does not have you reaching for dumbbells to get your bicep curl on. She actually utilizes a lot of plank variations to leverage your body weight. Some examples include toe taps while you're in a downward-facing plank, side-facing planks, and knee-ups. Throughout this workout, Copeland also has you move into different yoga poses like downward dog or child's pose. This is great to get some blood flow and mobility going between harder moves. Your upper body consists of so many different muscles groups, and this workout contributes to strengthening the area in unique ways.

Copeland counts along with you and encourages you throughout this workout. Even when the going gets tough, she's right there with you, and you'll be done before you know it.
