Do The Right Upper Body Workout For Optimum Results & Get On With The Rest of Your Day And Your Life
First things first, if you are interested in grueling, injury producing, 2 hour daily, old school weight lifting workouts, you'll have to look elsewhere. You will not find that here.
However, if you are like most people, you have a real life and can't, or just would rather not waste any unnecessary time, or risk stupid injuries, working out like a hardcore bodybuilder or powerlifter - when you are not trying to be either of those.
This is about a simpler, time efficient way of stimulating your upper body with various 'bodyweight' exercises that make it want to change for the better, instead of trying to force it to change with heavy weights & restrictive machines.
Being fit, lean, healthy and sexy does not require unrealistic amounts of time spent at the health club or in the gym.
(This myth comes from people making the assumption that others, who 'look like they know what they are doing', must know what they are doing, and since they spend 'ALOT' of time working out, this must be the only way to get the same results.)
This myth is both good and bad. Bad for the general public (maybe even yourself), who as a whole, completely assume they cannot be fit simply because 'they don't have the time' to exercise. But good for fitness pros like me who are trying to bring a modern fitness message to the masses.
A message of simple but extremely effective upper body workouts that break through all obstacles and crush all excuses, for the people that need and want fitness improvement the most. People just like you.
Men And Women On The Same Program Get Amazing Gender Specific Results - How Can This Be?
A beautiful thing, called the 'gender/genetic' factor, is what allows both genders to follow the same workout plan (as long as it is a good one) & get gender specific results.
Here is how it works. While men have the tendency to develop a more muscular physique, women typically develop a slender but shapely, toned & lean body look. Its that simple, basically mother nature handles the results!!
This happens because of differences in hormonal/genetic profiles that are rooted in the most fundamantal evolutionary societal role characteristics for males & females. OK, thats it for the scientific stuff - I promise!
Sure, there may be a few minor modifications in terms of sets & reps - but nothing major.
I learned this not through the classroom or the physiology lab - but by training many, many clients over the years.
Can You Handle The Fitness Truth?
To get a strong, toned & sexy upper body you do not need to do endless sets of weightlifting exercises for all these crazy different muscle groups. Nor do you have to take 2 hours out of your day to trek all the way to the gym just to kill yourself by going through the machine circuit 4 or 5 times (& still not see the results you deserve).

Effective Chair/Bench Dip For a Small Group Training Class
At The Former GAC Personal Training Studio In PVB, Florida
Now don't get me wrong, weights and machines have a secured place on the menu of fitness choices, but with all factors considered, most of your upper body workouts should be doable with minimal or no equipment, should be completed within 20 - 40 minutes, and should work the entire upper body - not just one or two muscle groups!!
By now, you might be wondering (if you haven't purchased one of my other fitness training programs or books), "Who the heck is this guy, Joey Atlas?"
In case you don't know me yet, I've been in the fitness industry since the mid 80's, I have a Bachelor's Degeree in Exercise Science and a Master's Degree in Exercise Physiology. I've owned and operated several Personal Training & Fitness Consulting Companies in New York And Florida over the past 15 years.
I am the creator of several other top-selling Fitness DVD Training Programs: (click these links to visit sites)
- 'Abs Of Stone - Core Of Steel'
- 'Athletic Legs For Men'
(You can also preview the Total Body Program For Men at this site)
- 'Optimum Flexibility'

The Most Essential Elements of The Ideal Upper Body - BodyWeight Workout Program
1) It must include muscle toning & strength building exercises for every muscle in the upper body including the core muscles.
2) It must include various degrees of challenge levels to foster the training effect for gradual upper body strength, toning & fitness improvement.
3) It must take into consideration your valuable time & should be able to be completed in 20 - 40 minutes depending on the specific workout - while still providing the upper body with the optimal training stimulus to bring about desired changes & results.
4) It must be doable anywhere - at home, a hotel, at a friends house or even a playground so as to remove any excuses whatsoever, which would prevent you from getting your workout in, no matter where you are.
5) It must show relatively fast upper body results/improvements to prove its merit over traditional, time consuming, gym mentality, injury risking, upper body workouts.
6) It should be compatible with & complimetary to training programs which are focused on other areas of the body - abs/core, lower body/legs & overall flexibility.
7) It should offer variations of specific upper body exercises, on each level, to account for and accomodate differences in your starting or current physical abilities as compared to other users.
8) It should not require you to purchase a gym membership, an expensive home gym or questionable fitness vitamin supplements or 'physique enhancers' - (A BIG, money wasting hoax that I will be addressing in one of my forthcoming books.)
9) It must include a simplified maintenance mode that tells you exactly how to keep your new upper body with smart, highly productive, condensed version, upper body maintenance workouts. NOT by you having to work harder & longer for the rest of your life.
These principles are what I base my own training program on, as well as the home and travel programs of my clients.
If you are like most people (who live in the 'real world'), you need an upper body fitness training program that doesn't take over your life and keep you from the things you'd rather be doing.
You want something realistic, but still extremely effective.
The reason I know this is, these are my own personal beliefs, as well. In my early years, I used to spend hours in the gym (before I knew better), working out as hard as possible (stupid) - because that's what I thought I was supposed to be doing.
Of course, I was able to do this (timewise, anyway) because I didn't have many other responsibilities. But as my life progressed, my 'fitness lifestyle' was just not fitting my life like it used to. I began to realize change was needed.
Marriage, kids and a growing business naturally demanded more of my time as compared to when I was young and single.
Transitioning into the real world required a transformation in my approach to fitness and my upper body workouts.
I had already been designing and teaching unique, simple and extremely effective 'home & travel' upper body - BodyWeight workouts for all of my personal training clients, both male and female.
I began using these programs myself & naturally spent more time improving and developing them.
Somewhat surprisingly, I did not lose anything (except for some aches & pains I developed during my years of traditional weight & machine workouts) on my new upper body - BodyWeight Fitness Training Program.
As a matter of fact I gained alot:
- I developed an effective workout program that fit perfectly into my busy life.
- I started feeling strong and full of energy during & between workouts.
- The visual results were (and still are) better, (with all factors considered) than when I was 'knocking myself out' in the traditional gym/fitness mentality mode.
As these upper body workouts became more structured, I began to give them to my clients (in print form) to follow at home or when they were travelling, as part of their training plans.
As happened with the other fitness training programs I have produced, my clients urged me to put these workouts on DVDs for them - and so I did. I also knew I'd have to get these upper body training programs mass produced for the general public as well - just like I did with the other programs.
We recently finished shooting video for the last DVD in this upper body training package and the complete program (3 DVDS) is going through production as you read this.
If you are looking for a better way to acheive your upper body fitness goals, and you are serious about getting definite results, then you should carefully consider this program.
Men, if you are looking to refine the muscle you already have or need to lose fat while defining & building the muscles hidden underneath, I strongly urge you to try this program.
Ladies, if you want more muscle tone or if you need to lose that layer of flab that is covering your sexy feminine muscles, you will want to follow this program.
If you are just taking yourt first steps on the incredibly rewarding journey to fitness, all I ask is that you start here with these DVDs & allow me to be your teacher. I will save you time, eliminate the guesswork and help keep you focused on your goals.
I've been doing this stuff for a long time. It is my passion. It has changed my life & I love helping others learn & realize the true benefits of realistic, effective, upper body fitness training. (Of course, true fitness is total body (& mind and spirit) and I also offer other DVD packages for these other areas.

"Joey, you are my hero...
As a female - the last thing I wanted was to build too much muscle mass. Thanks to your Ultimate Upper Body program I have been able to tone beautifully sculpted, feminine muscles. I have moved away from most of the 'weight-lifting' moves I was doing and my workout time has decreased dramatically. What I really love is that these workouts can be done anywhere, anytime. Your program is the only one that has been able to tighten up the 'flab' that used to hang from the back side of my arms. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and inspiration with the world. You changed my life"

Don't Be Like Everybody Else...
PS - If you are passing this opportunity up - Ask yourself "Why?"
Are you already too fit & satisfied with how you look and feel?
Or are you afraid to be fit, healthy and lean? Are you afraid of
change for the better and some of the uncertainty that may lie
ahead? Do you think you can't be in great shape or are you just
telling yourself that so you don't have to try?
Go look yourself in the mirror (I'm serious, try this!) and ask
yourself if you are happy with how you look, and how feel
about yourself? If you are happy then you shouldn't even be
reading this - you should be doing something else. But if you
have read this far, I'm pretty sure you want to make some
definitive, permanent changes with yourself.
My question to you is, "What are you waiting for ?"
If what you've read above doesn't strike a chord with you,
I can respect and understand that. If what I have to offer
doesn't interest you, then you may be very interested
in this site (especially men).
