What will the workshop cover?

This upper body workshop will target muscle groups from the hip upwards. We will be going through each of the different muscle groups, how to train them, what formats to use for specific goals as well as which muscles you should train together. We’ll cover what works well together and the range or equipment that can be used. Upper body workouts are just as important as lower body, as you need well rounded strength in the whole body otherwise you may cause injury to yourself. This is a great way to gain confidence and knowledge within the gym. Importantly, you’ll gain a good understanding of training formats for specific goals.
