Before You Begin

1. Take starting photos from your waist up – from the front, back and side, to help monitor your progress (we’ll repeat this at the end of the 4-weeks)

2. This is a 4-week challenge with the aim of developing your upper body physique. The photos will be your evidence for progress.

3. Commit to doing these sessions every day for the next 4-weeks... It doesn’t take long and the equipment is extremely easy to use, mobile and diverse.

You can even bring it on holiday with you!
