3/1 - 3/8 GYM WORKOUTS

3/1 - 3/8 GYM WORKOUTS

3/1: CHEST

Wide to Narrow Push-ups

  • 3 x 8+ (1 rep = wide push up narrow pushup)

2. DB Incline Rotational Press (pinkys together) / DB Incline Around the World

  •  4 x 12/10/8/8
  •  4 x 10-12

NOTE: Around the Worlds, thumbs touch at the top over head, then circle down under your chest, with pinkys touching.

3. SS* Flat Bench Press / Flat Bench Svend (Hex) Press

  •  4 x 12/10/8/6
  •  4 x fail

NOTE: Bring dumbbells or plates together touching, with palms facing, and really squeeze them together as you press up and down for the Svend Press. I'm actually using the same weight for both exercises. Just bring dumbbells together and rep out as many as you can.

4. SS* Singe Arm Crossbody Low to High Fly / Dips

  •  4 x 10-12
  •  4 x fail

NOTE: Singe Arm Underhand Crossover Incline Fly, is a standing incline (low to high) fly.  You are doing one arm at a time so that you can crossover and go from hip to opposite shoulder with an underhand grip.

The dips can either be done at a dip station bar, between two benches, or between two chairs.  If using chairs, to get more emphasis on chest, tuck your knees to you chest almost like curling into a ball, instead of having your feet out in front of you.

5. SS* Standing Flat Cable Fly / Standing Flat Cable Press / Push-ups

  •  4 x 8-10
  •  4 x 8-10
  •  4 x 10 -12

NOTE: The difference between cable fly and cable press, is the bend in the elbow.  For the fly your elbow is slightly bent and it stays in that fixed position throughout the entire movement.  You will do 8-10 flys and then switch right into presses by bending your elbow on the way back and then as you push forward your elbows will straighten just as you would a press.

 

3/2: BACK

Warm-Up: 3 x 10 each

  •  Band shoulder Up and Overs 
  •  Band Pull-aparts (reverse fly pull-apart)

1. SS* Rope Straight Arm Pulldown / Lying Cable Rope Facepulls / Seated Cable High Pulley Wide Row

  •  4 x 10-12
  •  4 x 10-12
  •  4 x 10-12

NOTE: You are going from straight arm pulldown, to sitting on the ground face pulls, and then to a wide row.  Elbow wide on the row to hit rear delts and upper back/traps.

2. T-Bar Row (overhand shoulder width grip)

  •  4 x 12/10/8/6 drop 10

NOTE: You can also just do a Bentover Barbell Row if you do not have an actual T-bar.

3. SS* Neutral Grip Pulldown / Neutral Grip High Row (stay at lat pulldown)

  •  4 x 12/10/8/8
  •  4 x 8-10

NOTE: I'm using a neutral medium (shoulder width) grip bar for both of these exercises. For the Standing High Row, you stay at the lat pulldown station, stand up, put one foot up for stability and you are just perform a high row, pulling towards your chest with elbows wide.

4. SS* Seated Wide Grip Cable Row / Seated Underhand Cable Row

  •  4 x 10-12
  •  4 x 8-10

NOTE: Staying at the same seated row station, you are just switching your grip from wide grip overhand to an underhand grip
