Best Upper Body Workout for Strong Toned Arms + Fat Burning Cardio Intervals

This upper body workout is a short but yet a very effective workout that will make your arms sore the next day! It’s an upper body strength training workout with some fat burning cardio intervals, which is always a great combo to burn extra fat. I personally don’t work on my upper body that much. Actually it’s not very strong, but I’m working on it. And my body will always be a work in progress. I don’t like to aim for perfection, I like to aim towards good and satisfying results.

I can’t say this enough so I’m going to say it again; Do NOT be afraid to lift heavy, ladies! Strength training and heavy lifting will only make you slimmer, more toned and fit and all in less time than you think or expect. It’s going to increase your metabolism, meaning that you can increase the volume of food you eat! And who doesn’t want to eat more?! Lifting heavy is not going to make you bulky. And even if it did I actually like women with a little muscle on them, not too much and not too little. Just the perfect amount. That is going to be different for every woman and man, and for every body type.

If you wish to increase your muscle mass it’s important to lift as heavy as you can control with clean and proper form. Your weights should be heavy enough, where you have a hard time completing the last few repetitions. If you wish to just tone up then lifting lighter with more repetitions is what you want to be doing.
