PUSH-A: CHEST, TRICEPS, SHOULDERS & ABS #SHREDCHALLENGE


Download the WORKOUT CALENDAR!


Today we are going to be focusing on Chest, Triceps, Shoulders & Abs. To begin, you are going to work on increasing your bench press strength and then go right into the high volume portion of the workout to focus on building muscle. It is IMPERATIVE that you follow these rest periods perfectly. The short rest periods are going to be vital to keeping the intensity high throughout the entire routine. Be sure to drink lots of water and give every set EVERYTHING you’ve got!

Did this tonight Scott, but prior I did the first day of the 400 ab routine. That took :40. First part was slower since I was watching you. 2:45 workout. Family thought I died! :) Still need to somehow lose that belly fat that is left. That is frustrating. My diet it spot on, workouts and cardio. I guess I'm impatient. Took years to get it there can't expect to look like you overnight. Keep it coming.

Scott_Herman

yeah man, it will go in time.. just stay consistent.  That is key to seeing results!  proud of you!!

Probably a dumb question but should you warm up before starting this workout? or when you switch body parts? If so, what would you recommend for a warm up? It just doesn't seem right to me to start a bench press and push yourself to only do 7 reps without warming up first.

Scott_Herman

always warm-up before training.  Check this out to get those shoulders ready.

Fast Question, I am kinda new to this type of training, I used to Crossfit a bit.  the 7,7,6,4,3 sets. Do I go up and I go less or do I stay the same?  I am thinking I go up.  The first week, don't have all my numbers, etc so just trying to get on it.  Love all your videos and DBZ!  :-) Thanks!

jeppesenc

Like he says in the video, increase the weight :) All the sets should be difficult

Scott_Herman

Right on @jeppesenc!!  You will need a spotter for the 7,7,6,4,3 😁

Just about to start day 1 - this is my first time trying a full programme rather than just making it up based on the muscle group I'm focusing on. I need to sort out my meal plan thought, it's already fairly healthy, just need the right quantities of protein, fats etc.... wish me luck!

Scott_Herman

you got this bro!!  Did you get to the @mealplan app yet?

franula

what is alternative to low to high cable fly?


thanx

franula

i have a cable machine but one side is busted and until they repair it.....couple of days....i just want to keep on track with the routine :)

Scott_Herman

oh ok, you can do it with dumbbells on an incline bench press if you want to stick with the low to high variation!

Why isn't there a standing OHP in the push A workout?

Scott_Herman

@chrone, you can switch the seated shoulder press for it if you would like!
