Often neglected whilst working out, I wanted to remind you that we have to work out our shoulders too.
Your boy will look weird if your biceps and triceps have increased, but your shoulders are the same, it must go up with the rest of your arms.
Also having stronger shoulders helps, and you avoid such injuries such as rotator cuff, which hurts very much & will slow own your progress.
So, I’m going to share with you three shoulder workouts for you to start right away, to get them active and on your way to getting stronger.
Get into the press-up position, think of your body now as a straight line.
Now keeping your body straight & looking ahead of you, lower yourself slowly until you are nearly touching the ground, then hold it for 3 to 5 secs and bring yourself back up fast, then repeat.
The whole point of going slow is, your body is being worked on the way down, so you need to keep that tension as long as you can, this is why I say go down slowly, then shoot back up.
Do three sets of 10, then when you get stronger increase it to 3 sets of 12.
It may not sound like much, however the whole point is to get your technique down and avoid getting hurt, your strength over time will shoot up, when you keep at it.
Inverted Rows First of all you are going to need a bar, then put yourself in a position where you are at waist height.
Then grip the bar with both hands, spread them out, so your arms are away from each other, then hang underneath the bar.
Your boy should be straight now, your arms should be fully stretched out, and your heels on the floor.
Now pull your chest toward the bar, it does not have to touch!
When you are going up, take a pause at the top, then slowly bring yourself back to the starting position.
Once again going slowly gives you more time under the pressure you are putting your body under, so the more time you can spend under that pressure the better, so make sure you go slow.
Start off by doing 3 sets of 10, then when you get stronger do 3 sets of 15, this will be a bit easier for you, so keep on increasing the sets, not so much the reps in time, and you’ll see the change.
You’ll need two dumbbells at your sides with your feet and shoulder a width apart.
Then you slowly raise your dumbbells out to the side, as if you’re pretending to be an airplane.
Then slowly go up and down, up and down.
You should start off with 3 sets of 5, then as you get stronger o 3 sets of 12, for those of you asking what dumbbells should you use?
I would say the light ones, this will allow you do a higher number of reps, if it was a big one, you would do less of them, the aim of this is to do more, so go light.
Please let me know your thoughts on this?
Until We Meet Again, Ciao
We Look Up 大
