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!

Sickboy

Been following you for a year man. Just Platinum'ed up. Starting this Monday. 

SpartanLAD

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!

Chrone

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!

J1kler

Hello!! I've noticed that in the PUSH PULL LEGS, there are certain exercises I will not be able to do the AMRAP, since i'll be at my limit after the barbell bench press of 7 7 6 4 3, can i drop it? and carry on with the other exercises normally?

or should i instead do another program to increase my basic strength first?


J1kler

Ahh definitely can do it!! Just went through this!!! Did the AMRAP just fine! It was just a mental block! :-D 

Scott_Herman

I was about to ask why you couldn't do it @j1kler.. I knew you could!! Good job bro :-)

OGgaucho

Hey Scott. So should I focus on only these exercises for my entire workout for that given day? Like when Im done with these should I be fine with only doing those?

Scott_Herman

Yes @oggaucho this routine is definitely enough for one day :-)

SebSystema

Excellent work out! I really appreciate the exercices with only 30 sec rest, I fill very Pump after that! 😀

Scott_Herman

The pump is unreal from these workouts @sebsystema! Makes a big difference with such short rest periods huh?

Scott, my arms look small when I'm wearing a T-shirt , but when I take it off and flex my arms the look really good.The question is,is it genetics or the lack of training the medial head of the triceps(learned about it 3 weeks ago)

Scott_Herman

It's probably just the t-shirt to be honest. If you're just buying generic t-shirts which aren't fitted in anyway, the sleeves tend to be bigger and your arm might not fill them out. Doesn't mean they don't look good, it's kind of an illusion because of the arm sleeves :-)
