Each exercise has its own benefits and will help you build your upper body muscles. The Dumbbell Bent over the semi-circle is a great routine for the back and shoulders. The Dumbbell upright row to T position strengthens the trapezius (traps), deltoids (delts), and biceps.
Dumbbell Chest Flye + Pullover is a single-joint exercise that targets the pectoral muscles and increases stability and control. The Biceps Curl to Reverse Shoulder Press will help you focus on your biceps and shoulder muscles. Lastly, the Super Wo/Man is a core exercise that targets lower back muscles, glutes, hamstrings, and abs.
