Upper Body Workout Roundup


Upper Body Workout Roundup

When I’m planning my workouts, I tend to get stuck with one area: upper body. I don’t know why, but I am way more creative when it comes to working out my lower body, or core. I’m sure it’s partly to do with the fact that, in my mind, squat jumps are a little more exciting than bicep curls.


The truth is, there are tons of exciting, challenging, and flat out fun upper body moves. To prove this, I’ve rounded up a set of super fun workouts that target the upper body. Get your shoulders, arms, back, and chest ready- they’re going to feel it in the morning!



Upper Body Dumbbell Workout

I complete this workout any time I need to squeeze in an upper body workout quickly. It’s one of my go to routines because I just need a pair of dumbbells. That means I can get in a great workout while watching Mickey in the living room with my three-year-old. Win.


Upper Body Dumbbell Circuit

I love that two-angle shoulder flys are included in this one, because switching up a basic move can be a great way to beat gym boredom.


Superset Upper Body Workout

If you’re still just not feeling a workout, supersets are the way to go. You’ll be done sooner and the time will fly by. And, in my personal opinion, saying Skull Crusher is just as fun as completing one. It’s the little things, folks.


Back & Shoulder Workout

Ready to get your box on? Look no further. This workout has a great mix of weights and cardio. I love that you start to feel like Rocky while punching your little heart out. Bonus points if you turn on the theme song. This workout is no longer available.


Beginner Upper Body Workout

Not sure where to start? Head here first for tips on how to complete moves like presses and curls using a resistance band. Then, use your newfound knowledge to complete a great workout.


Ultimate Sandbag Upper Body Burner

Sandbags sound like they might be fun, but it will be no walk on the beach. For a twist on a traditional upper body workout, definitely check this post out. It includes a video demonstration and totally has me itching to buy a bag of my own.


Upper Body Pyramid + Cardio Workout

This workout challenges you to slow it down for the strength portions. Without using momentum to get you through the moves, you’ll be feeling the burn a lot sooner. A few seconds has never seemed so long! This workout is no longer available.


Beautiful Back Workout

I don’t really ever think about my back per se. That is until I’m jumping into a tank top or backless dress. At that point, I’m always wishing I’d completed a few more bent over rows. These three moves are just the push I need.


Focusing on Forearms Workout

Speaking of forgotten areas, my forearms could always use a little extra work. Thankfully, I’m not alone. Pull Up Bar Hangs, anyone?

There you have it. Those are some of my favorite upper body workouts for the summer. Have one you’d add to the list? Let us know!

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x
Bumble Bee Seafood Logo

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
