Looking for a new upper body workout that will make your biceps burn? These 5 moves from athlete Razi Khan will be sure to bring the heat. This lightweight, high-volume routine combines movements from both calisthenics and weightlifting, so you can grow your muscles while improving endurance and coordination. It's the perfect session to shake up your next arm day at the gym. Improve your skills and check out the moves below:

1. Dumbbell Push Up to Dip

Sets: 4

Reps: 10

Beginners may separate this combo move, perform 10 of each, push up, and dip. The heavier the weight of the dumbbell, the more range of motion you'll have.⁣

2. Double Rope Face Pull

Sets: 4

Reps: 15

Attach the cable around eye level. The weight should be light enough so you don’t fall forward as you pull toward your face. Use two ropes for better range of motion.⁣

3. Dumbbell Snatch

Sets: 4

Reps: 12

Beginners should start very light and work on the endurance/cardio and explosive aspect of this move while being safe.⁣ Perform 4 sets of 12 reps for each arm.

4. Seated Knee Tuck

Sets: 4

Reps: 15

Using a bench will allow you to spread out as far as possible for a full range of motion. Get your knees all the way up to your chest! Beginners should start with no weight between the feet and go slow⁣.

5. Inverted Sprinter Row

Sets: 4

Reps: 10

Keep your body straight on this one, pop your chest out, and pull up to the bar. This works on a TRX or a standard squat rack as well. Beginners can remove the “sprinter knee” in this movement and focus on just the row.
