Get Crazy-Chiseled Arms With This 5-Move CrossFit Upper Body Workout

Get Crazy-Chiseled Arms With This 5-Move CrossFit Upper Body Workout

While lifting heavy weights definitely delivers results when trying to slim down and grow muscles, you can still get lean and ripped by doing multiple reps with moderate weight.

Jade Jenny, CrossFit coach and owner of Champlain Valley CrossFit, says, "Heavy low-volume and light high-volume illicit two very different effects." So if you don't have access to a barbell with plates, try this upper-body workout — all you need is a pair of medium-weight dumbbells and a non-bouncy medicine ball.

The Workout

5 Wall walks (or a 30-second handstand hold if this is too hard)
10 Plank dumbbell rows (5 per side)
15 Ball slams
10 Shoulder to overhead press
5 Triceps push-ups

Complete this workout five times. Descriptions for each move are below.
