Happy Monday everyone. I’ll be hitting shoulders and traps twice this week with my 4 day split schedule. This morning and again on Friday.
I did all straight sets this morning. No supersets or rest pause sets. Some think that straight sets aren’t enough but when you apply intensity and train to muscle failure, it’s more than enough. The goal is to overload the muscle. There’s no ‘best’ way to do that. You can make anything work.
Barbell Shrugs: 5 sets x 12, 8, 8, 8, 20 reps
Rear Delt Raises: 4 sets x 10-12 reps
Seated Lateral Raises: 4 sets x 12 reps
Smith Barbell Press: 5 sets x 10, 10, 10, 10, 20 reps
Machine Press: 3 sets x 15 reps
I started out with traps which I’ve been doing for the past few shoulders and traps workout. This helps warm up my delts. I also like to do heavy shrugs so it makes sense to do those in the beginning of my workout.
I also trained both calves and abs this morning. I picked two exercises for each. I did 4 sets for each calve exercise and 3 sets for each an exercise. After that it was cardio time.
Train with Passion,
