I agree with planks. I would also do calf raises too.

Dumbbell shrugs, one-arm dumbbell row, airplane pose are good ones for the upper back (and it hits more than just your upper back).

Actually, the lat pull down machine should be hitting the upper back and biceps already.

I second planks in place of crunches, but the one I would add are deadlifts for the glutes and lower back.

Thank you, what would you recommend for the upper back for a beginner?

swap out the bicep curls for something that targets the upper back, swap leg curl for deadlifts and you're already hitting your triceps with pushups. Add in a plank and you've got a full body workout.

Hi! For the past 2 months I've been doing strength training 2 times per week and cardio 3-4 times per week. Right now my strength training consists of crunches, wide leg squat, push ups, bicep curls, triceps press machine, lat pull down machine, seated leg curl machine and dumbbell shoulder press. This would take me about 30-35 minutes to complete.

I'm just wondering is this enough for a full body work out or should I add more or even replace anything. I am also concerned if I am not targeting all of my triceps heads and if I should even add anything else to make sure I am targeting all three of them or even replace anything as well.
