2021 Winter Upper Body Routine

My trainer at the gym wrote a new routine for me to do. This is auspicious because New York City might shut down again. The number of coronavirus infections is rising here.

You can click on my Home Gym category link to bring up the prior workout routines. There I also have blog entries that talk about how to do the routines.
