Shoulder workout

This mornings shoulder workout was great.

About two weeks ago I started to take some preworkout, I have put it aside and am aiming to take two weeks off using this. After that I will aim to only have this on days I know take more energy ie legs and days that I am feeling a bit flat. I know most people would think that getting up at 4:45am to train most mornings would mean I am always flat, but it really doesn’t take me long to get going again. I don’t necessarily get up this early by choice, why its always a choice as in I choose to train in the mornings, for me to fit it in to my working day then this is required. I like being able to finish work and go home so I will continue to do this if I can πŸ™‚

So back to the purpose of this blog, my shoulder workout:

Iso shoulder press – 5 sets – 1st set = 5 pulses, 1 full – repeat 5 times and end with 5 full reps. 2nd set – 5 pulses, 1 full, repeat 4 times and end with 5 fulls – do this concept down to 2 and on the last (5th) set complete a drop set.

Seated shoulder press with dumbbell single arm side raises – 4 sets – 10 reps press and 12 rep sides.

Standing front/side raises with standing dumbbell upright row with front plate twists (or ‘driving the bus’) – 4 sets – 16 front/side raises, 12 upright row, 12 front plate twists


What weight did I use?
iso press – I started with 10kg and increased by 2.5kg each side each time
seated press – 12kg dumbbells
side raises – started at 6kgs and increased to 8kgs
standing front/side – 4kg
standing upright row – started at 10kg and finished with 12kg
plate twist- 5kg plates
