PURPOSE GYM WORKOUTS WEEK 7

2/22: CHELTS

1. Med Ball Push-up (Advanced - Stability ball push ups)

  •  3 x max effort (failure)

NOTE: Rest 90 secs in-between 

2. SS* Incline DB Rotational Press / Plate Raise 

  •  4 x 12/10/8/8
  •  4 x 10-12

NOTE: The incline rotational press, you will be internally rotating as you press up and then externally as you come down.  So you will start in your overhand (palms face away) grip, at full extension you will end up in a reverse (palms face you) grip and pinky together.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-d2hD0vC4jE

3. SS* Flat Bench Fly Press / Seated Lateral Raise

  •  4 x 12/10/8/8
  •  4 x 15/12/10/10

NOTE: The elbows aren't exactly locked in a slightly bent position—there's some opening and closing, but not to the degree you see with a chest-pressing motion. The rationale here is to utilize movements that combine characteristics of both a compound and isolation movement.. 

4. SS* Dual Cable Superman Press (Trap Press) / Dual Cable Incline  Facing Low to High Fly

  •  4 x 8-10
  •  4 x fail

NOTE: Using an incline bench, place it between the Cable Cross. Lie facing chest down on incline with handles in both hands, up by shoulders just like a shoulder press. You are just press up like a shoulder press, but you are on an angle. Then transition right into  a low to high fly from that same position. 

5. TS* Reverse Cable Fly / Flat cable chest fly/ Decline Push-up (feet on bench) /

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

NOTE: pulley at a setting above you head, makes it easier to do the reverse flys.


2/23: BACK

  •  4 x 10
  •  4 x 10
  •  4 x 10

NOTE: W-raise, arms come up to make a w- with the arms.  Hands will be above elbows, elbows pointed down, making a "W" with your arms. Your thumbs point back behind you.

2. Wide Grip (3 sec eccentric)

  • 3 x 10

NOTE: Use a band for assistance!  I will be using one too, so dont feel bad! Im using a light one so that my form is strict and im not pulling with my shoulders

3.  Single Leg Bent-over Rows

  •  4 x 12/10/8/8 (switch legs about half way through set)

NOTE You will be in single leg stance with dubbells at the side of the leg on the ground. The purpose for this is create less stress on the back.You'll also be forced to eliminate any momentum, cheating, or technique issues. Any aberrations in form will immediately disrupt balance. Ideally you should be able to handle at least 70% of the weight you use for standard bent-over rows. If you're unable to do this, then you need to work on your single-leg balance

If balance is not a strong suit, do the single leg bent over, but place the toe of other leg on top of a bench kinda like a bulgarian.

4. SS* Neutral Grip Pulldown / Neutral Grip High Row

  • 4 x 12/10/8/8
  • 4 x 12/10/8/8

NOTE: The neutral grip high row can be done at the latpull down, just stand up, place one foot up on the seat for balance.

  •  4 x 10 full reps + 10 partials
  •  4 x 10 each (20 total squats)

NOTE: Start with DB at your sides, squat down, as you come up you will clean the weights up to your shoulder so by the time your are standing up the dumbbell will be sitting vertical on your shoulders (palms facing in, thumb down, pinky up).  Then squat down in front squat, once you get beck back to standing you will just drop the dumbbells back down to your sides…..and continue.  10 reps each form or 20 total reps.

2/25: DELTS (same as Dumbbell Only Workout)

1.  Front Raise to Lateral Raise Combo

  •  4 x 8-10

NOTE: 1 rep = front to lateral then lateral to front. These are tough, so start out light.  Make sure to watch the video link.  these are not two separate movements, they are meshed together to create one movement. 

2. Neutral Grip Front Raise to Push Press Combo

  •  4 x 8-10

NOTE: Front Raise to Shoulder Press, dumbbells will come to the front in a neutral grip front raise, when dumbbells reach shoulder height, elbows will bend so weight come back to your shoulders.  As soon as the weights come back to shoulders, press them up in a neutral grip push press. This is similar to a Hang Clean & Press, but in a neutral grip position the entire time!

3. SS* Strict 1.5 Rep DB Lateral Raise / Regular DB Lateral Raise / Band Pulsing Laterals

  •  4 x 6-8 (1.5 reps)
  •  4 x 8-10 (full rep)

NOTE: The 1.5 rep lateral raise, you keep your arms are pretty strict at your sides, raise DB up to shoulder height, come down half way, back up to shoulders, then all the way down….that is one rep. You do 6-8 of the 1.5 reps, then you go to regular full range DB Laterals , keeping the same exact weight for 8-10, these can start more out in front of you.  Then lastly drop DB and if you have a resistance band you will do 10-12 With Resistance band.  I do pulsing/partial reps very fast to really get the blood pumped up in your shoulders.
