CHEST, TRICEPS & ABS - BUILD MUSCLE - Workout 1 #SUMMERSHRED


Download the WORKOUT CALENDAR!


Get ready to blast your CHEST, TRICEPS & ABS! This is the first workout in your 8 WEEK SUMMER SHRED and it is geared toward BUILDING MUSCLE! This workout combines high volume with my own personal creation BURN SETS! Burn sets will help you rip and tear more muscle fibers per set than ever before to ensure you are always taking your training to the next level! They also help “pre-exhaust” whatever muscle group you are targeting making the following exercises more intense as well. So make sure you give every set everything you’ve got!

*BURN SET: The number of “BURNS” determines how many times you complete the desired rep range within 1 set.  For example, Dumbbell Chest Press (3 Burns).  Complete 10 reps with as much weight as you can, lower the weight, complete 10 reps with as much weight as you can, lower the weight, complete 10 reps with as much weight as you can THEN rest 60 seconds.  There is no rest between burns.

Do you complete 3 sets and then complete 3 burn sets?  DB bench press, for example: Do your three sets with 60 sec rest periods between sets, then complete the burn sets as described?

Scott_Herman

you do 3 burns PER SET, Watch the video, I give an example and explain how to do everything 😁 

rdill1122

What would be a good alternative to the reverse-grip BB bench press?  I have a shoulder injury that prevents me from doing this without pain.

Scott_Herman

well... if you use proper form you shouldnt really feel this at all in your shoulder due to the external shoulder rotation... but you CAN use the incline press instead (dumbbells or barbells).  What happened to your shoulders?

Maneesh97

Hi, I am quite skinny e.g. wrist size is 5.5 inches. (though have belly fat)... will so many sets help me or should i lift heavier and do less sets

Scott_Herman

just follow the program as designed dude.  Also, what are your meal plan macros?  you using my custom @mealplan app?

KagedTom

Hey Scott, the workout schedule link seems to be broken. I'd like to know what should I do on weekends for this program. HIIT/Cardio active rest? Thanks!

Scott_Herman

oh damn, you are right.  I updated it on the other page.. but not the workouts.. fixing now!  should be good by the time you read this! :-D

KagedTom

Thanks Scott! It's working now :)

Scott_Herman

Awesome, thanks for letting me know @kagedtom!

alexparkaj

Hi Scott, when following this program should I do all the same exercises shown in the videos for all 8 weeks or switch some exercises up, for example switch standing Bicep curl with a Preacher curl, but still stick to same amount of burns, sets, rest etc.? Thanks!

Scott_Herman

Follow the exact program.... but nothing wrong with switching things up from time to time.  Make it your own :-D

alexparkaj

Thanks for the help Scott! :-)

I only have ~60 minutes to get my routines in each day, but I really want to to try this workout. Is there an effective way to cut it down? Perhaps one less burn on each movement or push the abs off to another day? Thanks!

Scott_Herman

Try doing 1 burn per set and do it on the FIRSt set of each exercise.

MAscencio

Hey Scott, is it ok if I do the monday workout on thursdays instead? 

Scott_Herman

sure, adjust it to work for your schedule @mascencio!

Hey Scott, I did the first chest day and it is painful!!! But i love the burn. I want to know that how long would it be perfect to complete this workout? like under 90 minutes? Also, before Im able to do 60-50-50-50 for the dumbbell bench press, now i do like you burn set so it become: 1st: 50x10, 40x10, 30x10, 2nd: 50x8, 40x10, 30x10, 2nd: 45x10, 40x10, 30x10. Would this make my chest got smaller even though it burn every time i workout with your program? (Since the weight is lower)

Scott_Herman

yes about 90 minutes my friend! and about the weight.. not at all..  the reason why the weight is lower is bacause you are doing exactly what you set out to do which is destroy the chest muscles to grow bigger.  If anything.. get a spotter to help you wth forced reps if you want to stick with the same weight.  They can help you on the push and you control the negative :-D

cheburashka307

I'm sorry to ask again but i just want to make sure. 3 burns mean 3 burns per set or 3 burns per exercise? If it is 3 burns per set the if i do the dumbbell press does that mean i have 9 burns in total?

Scott_Herman

it is 3 burns per set on every set :-D

cheburashka307

Hey Scott, my wrist have problem when i do the reverse grip barbell bench press, would i get the same result if i just do the normal grip?

Scott_Herman

Normal grip doesn't train upper chest.  Have you tried useing wrist wraps to take pressure off?  You could switch it for incline press :-D
