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

Find partner: Workouts, whether upper body (in your case), lower body or cardio can be a 'drag' after a while. My best advice as a sports medicine physician and endurance 'athlete' is to find a work- out partner w/ similar work- out goals as you and train together... 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

Need help with a workout for someone who doesn't gain weight! What kind of diet should I have to complement this?

Question is why do you want to gain weight if you are of average range? Unless, of course, you want to become a sumo wrestler. ...Read more
