The Weight of The World...............

On finely sculpted shoulders, that is!


    It will come as no surprise to anyone who has trained with me, that I am a huge fan of trying out new ways to exercise the body parts. Standard routines are great, but to keep motivated, I get inspired by what else is out there, and how an exercise has been adapted from my days of competing. For this, I look to many of the Brazilian fitness competitors. Where I live, the sun shines pretty much all year round. We're experiencing a very mild Winter, and while a vest top may be a tad ambitious, it is most definitely T-shirt weather during the day. With that said, every well fitted T deserves a set of nicely shaped and toned shoulders to complement it. And here goes: [gallery columns="2" ids="|"]  

Perform 4 sets of 12 reps on each exercise

For demo purposes I've used a light weight, in reality, the weight needs to get heavier on each set

And to finish off...let this one flow from one exercise to the other:

Start with arms at right angles to body, pull the weight back, straight up into the shoulder press , pec dec it, back to the start - that's 1 rep, I need 12, repeat 4 times. Don't be afraid to ask your training partner to assist - it is meant to be harder on set 4!

And that's a wrap!


Until next time/Até a proxima
