Sweat & Tone! Awesome Shoulder Workout

Shoulder WorkoutThis was my workout yesterday. This is not a bodybuilder workout where you isolate muscles and rest in between exercises. Prepare to SWEAT! I was dripping wet and out of breath practically the whole time. I’m sharing the weight I did so you can get a feel for the right resistance for you. 🙂 Have fun!

Click on the links to see video instruction if you are unfamiliar with an exercise.

#1 SET (5 Sets)
10-12 Heavy Push Presses and Split Jerks
#1: 45lb Bar Standing Military Press
#2: 55lbs Push Press
#3: 65lb Push Press
#4: 75lb Split Jerk
#5 85lb Split Jerk
TIP: Rest between sets so you can lift heavy. Not TOO much rest though. 🙂

#2 SUPER SET
10 25lb Snatches (10 Left & 10 Right)
10 Alternating Shoulder Press (ladders) with 8-10lb dumbbells (10 each arm/20 total)
TIP: no rest between exercise. Rest AFTER both exercises are complete back to back.

#3 SUPER SET
10 45lb Bar Moderate Military or Push Press
10 8lb Dumbbell Alternating Shoulder Press (Fast ladder press – 10 each arm/20 total)
10 5lb Dumbbell Lateral Raises
TIP: On ladders, one hand should be going down WHILE the other is going up to keep BOTH arms moving. Otherwise one arm gets rest while the other arm works. This super set is about wearing them out.) NO REST until all 3 exercises are complete. Short rest between super sets.

#4 SUPER SET
12 Face Pulls with Rope
12 Rear Delt Raises

Let me know how you do!! 🙂

LiveXFit: Shoulder & Cardio Workout

If you’ve worked out with Steve before, you might have heard him say this is going to be a “Scardio” workout. What he means is, this is going to be a strength + cardio workout, so prepare to pour sweat! Well, this is one of those workouts! Truth is, all of our workouts on the LiveXFit shows are scardio workouts. Here’s a good example how a shoulder workout can take your breath away! Give it a try:

5 Snatches Right
15 Push Press
5 Snatches Left
15 Ladder Press
5 Snatches Right
15 Lateral Raises
5 Snatches Left

Repeat 3-5 times OR start with 20 reps of the strength moves, and drop 5 reps each round (20, 15, 10 & 5). If you go down in reps, you might want to try to go UP in weight. Pick a heavy weight or you won’t get all the goody out of this workout! Let me know what you think! 🙂

Bikini Body Workout

Mass SuitWhat makes a bikini body? A flat tummy, sculpted shoulders and nice buns! With that in mind, here’s a workout Steve and I designed for the MASS SUIT to burn calories and tone all the important bikini body parts – all in one pretty simple workout. You can also do this workout with bands or dumbbells. Granted, there is NO WAY it will be as intense as it was with the MASS SUIT (OMG!), but it will still be a killer workout.

One thing that makes this workout challenging is because it uses compound movements. Meaning, you are doing a lower body exercise AND an upper body exercise at the same time. To make things even more intense, you are not taking any rest between exercises to maximize calorie burn. The good news is, you get twice the workout in half the time! Yahoooo!!

The MASS SUIT kicked my butt and really challenged my core. I was out of breath in half the time of doing traditional training – and I have to admit I was challenged at only 10 reps in! ha! Here’s the workout video to follow along with, as well as the matching written workout!

MASS SUIT BIKINI BODY WORKOUT

10 Jumping Jacks
20 Stepback Lunges with Lateral Raises

Butt & Delt Live X Power Blitz

How to do this compound workout: This workout uses several different exercises combined together in one fluid (compound) movement. NOTE: Click on the exercises to watch video demonstration of each movement.

butt and shoulder workout

Tools: Dumbbell or Kettlebell

Before you pick up your weight, do 5 burpees. Grab the dumbbell and get ready to work! The compound movement starts with a clean (bringing the dumbbell from the floor to the shoulder), then with the weight on the shoulder go down into a squat, return to stand and go right into a 1-arm shoulder press (keeping the dumbbell overhead), then immediately to an overhead step-back lunge (with dumbbell still overhead with active shoulder), return to stand, bring dumbbell down and back to the ground to begin the whole sequence again for the 2nd rep. After 10 full reps are complete, stay standing on that last round and pump out 15 1-Arm shoulder presses. Feeeel the burrrrn!! 🙂

This is what it looks like on paper…

RIGHT ARM:
5 Burpees
10 Clean + Squat + Shoulder Press + Overhead Step Back Lunge
15 1-Arm Press

LEFT ARM:
5 Burpees
10 Clean + Squat + Shoulder Press + Overhead Step Back Lunge
15 1-Arm Press

3 ROUNDS
(6 total rounds, 3 on each side)

Smokin’ Shoulders Workout

smokin' shoulders

This is a great workout that will sculpt your shoulders, while also toning the glutes, legs and core – AND burn a bunch of calories! UNLESS….

This workout will be extremely effective UNLESS you rest between sets and rounds. The goal for this workout is to try to keep going, back to back, through the whole workout. Turn up the effort even more by turning up the weight. For the best results, I recommend timing yourself for the whole workout. Then repeat the workout next week, and time yourself again. Compare your times to hold yourself accountable and push yourself into one effective conditioning, body-toning zone!
