Do you ever do plate sandwich walks?
If not you should, they’re great for strengthening your upper body.
I also call these ‘plate compression walks’ however the one above sounds more fun.
They’re quite simple, yet very effective.
Take three plates, say 2x10kg & 1x5kg.
The 10’s are on the outside and the 5 is in the middle.
Keeping your hands flat (think palm pressure🙏), press the plates together hard, if you see your elbows slightly tucked you will feel this a lot in your pecs/lats.
From here go for a walk and only stop when you can’t hold the isometric contraction and longer.
Repeat for 10min, or longer if you choose.
You can of course to this with only 1 or 2 plates, I’ve just found three makes like rather interesting.
This also works great with kettlebells 🤗
Add this to your workouts and you’ll find upper body strength & progress you didn’t know you had in you.
