I'm training to complete a 5k rock solid race in 6 weeks, cardio is fine but I need to increase my upper body strength significantly and in 6 weeks. Can anyone recommend workouts to help?

Do a mix of strength and resistance training with your upper body. Work the larger arm muscles first then smaller (for example, biceps, then back, then pecs, then shoulders, then triceps). Do an arm circuit two or three times a week to get results faster. Regardless of what body part you are working, changing up what you are doing gives you the best result, repeating the same exercises makes your body stagnant. Good luck!
