Which Upper Body Exercise Do You Love the Most?

Ahhh . . . the tank tops and halters of Summer. These lovely and cooling fashions require a little attention to the upper body. I tend to find strength training for the arms and back enjoyable. I like to work my triceps with Tricep Dips, my upper back doing Seated Rows, my chest and shoulders doing Chest Presses, and I throw Balancing Push-ups in the mix to strengthen my overall upper body, core, and arms. Out of all these exercises . . .

I love my ball! It feels like playing, not working out.

Tricep dips! They are so satisfying. I lost weight a couple of years save for the "bingo wings" arms which happened as a result of the weight loss and then I was introducted to tricep dips. It's very satisfying to feel nicely toned triceps. :D I prefer upper body exercises because I love to feel the strength that results. :D

wow, tricep things are so popular, didn't expect that. i have them. my wrists are really weak from playing all that big tennis as a kid and getting injuries so i hate push up and everything to do with my wrists.

I always liked doing chest presses. Seated rows aren't bad either. The WORST are triceps!! Any move involving them, I just despise. My arms are weaker than my legs, but still, I am sooo sore after I do tricep dips or kickbacks.

I like pushups of all kinds...they really work all the muscles of your upper body. Rows are a close second though...I like them because I can use really heavy weights, lol.

I prefer traditional push ups

I can't say that I have favorite upper-body moves, but I love working my chest, shoulders and triceps.

Not a fan of any of these, to be honest. I like overhead presses and curls the best. ^_^

when i was in high school, i was able to do almost 30 pull ups! without cheating. i did them slowly, and fully extended each rep. yeah.. all of these exercises are great, and i need to work on my pull ups too. :)

Weighted tricep dips modified to make them even more difficult by putting my feet up on another bench. Fun times! Not a fan of the push-up, but I realize you do get more bang for your buck by doing it as it works chest, arms, shoulders, and even your core to some extent.

I like to do all of them since my goal is to one day have "good arms." Thanks, Fit.

To be honest, though, I don't really like any of them :) I'll take curls and skull crushers any day!
