Happy 4th of July! Today’s workout was a struggle but I roughed through it, and I pushed myself to the max! Yesterday was a rest day for me, and since today I don’t plan on eating super clean I wanted to make sure I got in an epic (fasted) workout. Keep reading if you want to know how my shoulder workout went!
It’s shoulder day! *sarcastic excited voice*
Here’s what I did:
Drop set: (3 rounds) – Dumbbell Shoulder Press – 30lbs x5 – 25lbs x5 – 20lbs x5 – 15lbs x5
Superset: (4 rounds) – 1. Cable Side Lateral Raises (8 each side)
2. Barbell Shoulder Press (5 HEAVY)
*superset means completing both exercises as one set.
Single Sets: (4 rounds each) – 1. Cable Rear Delt Flys
2. Standing Barbell Press Behind Neck
Tips: To help keep my shoulders healthy and strong, I like to take a 5lb plate and do external rotations between each set (or after each completed exercise). This helps with your rotator cuff.
Cardio: For cardio, today I did a Spartan Workout and sprints to finish
5 Jump Squats
10 Split Squats
35 Jumping Jacks *no breaks in between & repeat 2-5 times
AND to finish I did sprints for 12 min: warm up with a light jog for 5 min then…
30 sec on 30 sec off sprints @ 11-12mph
I hope everyone enjoys their day with family and friends! As always, thank you for reading.
