Morning! Just wanted to share a new workout with you guys today. This is one that I taught for the beginning of class last week, but it’s one that would make for an extremely effective 15-20 minute workout during the busy holiday season.
I hope this one isn’t too confusing. Basically, if you are working out with a friend, partner 1 starts with the circuit and goes through 10 reps of each exercises while partner 2 does barbell push presses for however long it takes partner 1 to finish the circuit. Then you will switch so partner 2 does the circuit while partner 1 does barbell push presses. The next round will be exactly the same except that the overhead exercise will be a barbell overhead hold instead of a push press. You will continue alternating in this pattern for 15-20 minutes or until both partners have done equal amounts of rounds.
This makes for a great shoulder burn because of all the overhead moves! If you want to do this one solo, just do the overhead moves for 30 seconds on your own before going back to your main circuit. But since tomorrow’s Holiday Hustle suggested check in is something active with a friend, I thought I’d help you guys out!
About how much I’m LOVING barbell push presses lately. Anyone else? What exercise always makes your shoulders burn?
Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday so far! To follow along with my Holiday Hustle challengers, check out #ffholidayhustle on social media. Everyone’s breakfast pics today look so YUMMY!
Thanks for this quick and effective workout!
I have been doing a few of the Beast DVD’s and on The Shoulders DVD there is this set of 15-12-8-8-12-15 lateral raises and rear delt raises that make my shoulders feel like they are on fire!
You’re welcome! That lateral raise and rear delt raise combo sounds torturous!
This looks awesome – love the way it can be done with a partner or without!!!
Thanks! Enjoy it!
This looks like an awesome workout!! Linked to it on my latest post!
