I really don't like upper body workouts! how can I make them more fun?

If unable to do so then work w/ a certified personal trainer who can keep your work- outs more fun and goal/ oriented. Best of Luck! ...Read more

I regularly workout my upper body(chest,shoulders,and back) at the gym. Is it possible that it makes me heavy on top to slouch?

Certainly no harm in doing upper body workouts. If getting worse, see your orthopod. Good Luck. ...Read more
