Shoulders

A Shoulder in the Fight Against Weakness

A big part of that athletic taper are your deltoids. Gym fit-natics often ignore how big of a factor well-developed shoulders are in obtaining your ideal physique. Properly trained shoulders give your body that broad, squared off appearance that attributes to the image of a cultivated physique. Here’s to people mistaking your shoulders for boulders…

‘Merca

I’m willing to bet that your gym is probably closed on the glorious day we celebrate our rebellious forefathers; but I know that they wouldn’t take a day off from achieving their goals – so why should you? Today, I offer an American themed workout to ward off the calories from those burgers, brats, and…

Full Body with a Slight Chance of Core

For all of my full body fans that have either plateaued or fallen asleep doing your old boring workout, search no further. Please plan accordingly; you will need about 30 minutes after the workout to gather yourself so that you won’t topple over like the Titanic on your way to the showers. This one targets…

Full Body Strength Training Workout

A quick full-body workout with a tough set of abs to finish it off.

Completing the Second Circuit

Another addition to full-body circuit training. Like the first one, be sure to record your times, weights, and reps so you can increase the difficulty on your next workout. I would recommend this be done 2-3 times a week, but that’s up to you and what you want to accomplish in fitness! The idea behind…

Drop Sets and Pyramids

A common mistake many weight trainers make is doing the same exercise, at the same weight, for the same amount of repetitions, each, and every time. The problem with this is that many weight trainers hit what is called a plateau (a point where gains have come to a screeching halt). By changing up your…

Extension and Contraction Split Training

Not entirely a full body workout, and not entirely a split routine. It’s a split between the muscles that are extending and contracting… so, it’s like a half-body workout? Ready to start training? Anyway, this is for people who are trying to maintain AND make gains in muscular strength, it just depends on how hard…
