One of my favourite hashtags is #bouldershoulders. If you follow me on Instagram (check it out & follow if you aren’t already) I’m sure you’ve seen me use the hashtag quite a few times before. It’s like each training day has a different hashtag to use to tag your selfie muscle pump pictures in. 🙂
After completing this workout, my shoulders were pumped For.Real! I’m thinking it was all to do with the death walk – it is freaking killer!! If you haven’t done the death walk before, you really need to try adding it into your routine. Just when you think your traps are going to cut off your breathing, do the death walk. 🙂
+ Dumbbells – I used 15lb, 10lbs, 45lbs and 65lbs
+ Exercise Mat
You want to use a weight that is heavy for you when you’re completing your final 2 – 3 reps. Everyone is different so don’t be discouraged if you aren’t lifting as heavy as others. Muscles are very hard to build, but working them at least five times a week will give you great strength over time.
As you continue to lift weights, you can begin to increase your weights as certain exercises become easier.
Complete the following circuit without any rest between each exercise.
Complete a total of 4 circuits.
20 Arnold Presses
15 Front Raises
15 Lateral Raises
10 External Rotations (R&L)
10 DB Shrugs
30 second Death Walk
I’m that one who grabs the 65’s off the dumbbell rack and slams it into my thigh before I take my death walk. Yes, this seriously did happen, and I have quite the bruise to prove it. Luckily there were only about 5 other guys around, and not one of them even laughed!
Good on them! 🙂
Have you ever had an embarrassing moment in the gym?
