New Workout Wednesday: Simple and Effective Upper Body Routine (Arms, Chest, Shoulders, and Back)!

It's Wednesday...and you guys know what that means...A NEW WORKOUT! Specially formulated by yours truly :) This awesome routine focuses on Upper Body, i.e. arms (biceps and triceps), chest, shoulders, and back...all these muscles only about 30 minutes! Yep, you read that right: 30 minutes. How?! With TFVG secret workout formula: I call it "multi training." Basically, my simple formula combines two strength-based exercises into one, maximizing muscles used, while minimizing workout time. Additionally, by combining TWO exercises, you stress your body twice as hard, doubling calorie burn per exercise.
This is a pretty basic, beginner-friendly workout, so not all the exercises are multi training exercises...however, as you get more comfortable with each individual exercise I introduce, you can start meshing more and more exercises together. Get creative with your training--exercise should be fun! Enjoy the workout!
