Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
Here's a high intensity, killer workout I've been doing for my 'guns' lately that my trainer (JC) came up with:
Monster Set: Biceps
-BB Preacher Curls 10-15 reps
-DB Hammer Curls 10-15 reps
-EZ Bar Curls 10-12 reps
-DB Preachers 10 reps
Superset all those exercises consecutively. I can normally curl 45 lb DB's with strict form 10x each arm but struggled to hammer curl the 30's. Really good workout to get the blood flowing.
Monster Set: Triceps
-CG Bench 10-15 reps
-DB Overhead Extensions 10-15 reps
-V-Bar Pressdowns 10-15 reps
-CG Bench 6-10 reps
-Skull crushers 10-12 reps
-Rope Pushdowns 15 reps
Should take under an hour to get through it all. Allow yourself ample rest time after completing a monster set. Rest 2-3 minutes and repeat it again.
Blood will be flowing, muscles will be incredibly pumped, and you'll leave the gym with an awesome workout. Take it up if you've hit a plateau and mix things up.
All credit to JC for the workout.. He can be found on bodyspace @ bodybuilding.com for those interested.
