Lie on your back on an incline bench set between 15 and 30 degrees, and hold a pair of dumbbells above your shoulders with your arms straight. Lower the dumbbells to the sides of your chest. Pause, and then push them back up. Do 10 reps and rest for 20 seconds. Decrease the weight of the dumbbells by 20 to 30 percent and perform 10 more reps.
Assume a pushup position with your hands on a bench. (The higher the bench, the easier the exercise.) Your body should form a straight line from ankles to head. Bend your elbows and lower your body until your chest nearly touches the bench. Then push up with enough force so your hands leave the bench. Land with your hands on the bench and repeat. Do 5 to 10 reps.
Hang at arm's length from a chinup bar using an overhand grip that's slightly beyond shoulder width. Squeeze your shoulder blades together and pull your chest to the bar. Pause, and then return to the starting position. Do 5 to 10 reps.
Secure a bar in a power rack at about waist height. Drape two towels over the middle of the bar so they're slightly beyond shoulder width. Grab the ends and hang from them with your knees bent, your feet flat on the floor, and your body straight from knees to head. Pull your chest toward the bar. Pause, and then slowly return to the starting position. Do 10 reps.
Hold a dumbbell in your right hand, place your left hand on a bench in front of you, and assume a staggered stance, left foot forward. Hold your elbow in as you row the wight to the side of your torso. Do 10 reps, switch arms and leg positions, and repeat the movement.
Grab a pair of dumbbells, bend your knees and lean forward so your torso is nearly parallel to the floor. Tuck your upper arms next to your sides, bend your elbows, and hold your forearms about parallel to the floor, palms facing up. Simultaneously extend your arms straight back and rotate the weight so your palms end up facing each other. Return to the starting position. Do 15 reps.
Standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, hold a pair of dumbbells at arm's length by your sides, palms facing each other. Without moving your upper arms, curl the weights to your shoulders, and then press them overhead until your arms are straight. Reverse the move to return to the starting position. Do 10 reps.
