    Scott Herman - TRAPS & CALVES!

    January 15, 2020, 11:10 am

    Hey guys!


    It's time to FINALLY spark some growth in these stubborn calves and traps!!  Now, I DID start Nuclei Overload Training with my biceps in my last experiment, however I didn't finish.  


    I was only able to keep it up for about 12 days due to time restraints with my daily training. So I thought it would be best to keep the focus 100% on biceps for the first experiment and supersetting traps and calves together would be a lot easier as I can just set-up two barbells in my power rack.


    So if you missed the original video explaining Nuclei Overload Training, be sure to check it out here!




    But now.. IT'S TIME TO LIFT AND MAKE SOME GAINS AS A COMMUNITY!!


    I want you all to post your STARTING/BEFORE photos right now as a new comment in this thread!


    HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO!


    1. Take a front and back photo of your traps


    2. Use a measuring tape and take a photo of your calves!


    and then the rest is easy! 



    POWER SHRUG

    BARBELL CALF RAISE


    The way I am going to complete my 30 days is that instead of resting, I'm going to be supersetting these two movements together non-stop until I complete 10 sets of 10 reps.  Now, if you're still relatively new to training, I suggest picking traps or calves to start.  Doing both could be too much for you right now.


    The key is to listen to your body.  But at the end of the day, the way I see it is that your calves can take a MASSIVE beating.  So hitting them along with power shrugs won't be too draining on my overall energy.


    I am really excited to start this new journey with all of you!!!  NOW LET'S GET STAHHHTED!


    PS: I will be OFFICIALLY starting this next TUESDAY, January 21st as I am traveling this week!

    Alright guys so I officially started February 3rd, 2020.  Took a few extra days to get things in order after my trips, but I haven't missed a day yet!


    My current workout:

    1. Power Shrugs: 10 sets: 10 reps with 315lbs

    2. Barbell Calf Raise: 10 sets: 12 reps with 275lbs


    So I've been treating this as a superset.  I currently have both barbells set up in my squat rack and I take about a 60 second ret between sets.


    All in all it only takes me about 25 - 30minutes max to complete all 100 reps!


    This in combination with Full Body Training has been amazing.  I have lso bumped my calories to 3,500 as well!


    I would say the most important thing to note right now is that during my Full Body Workouts in the gym I am not targeting calves and traps specifically.  There is no need to as I am training them daily.  However I will still utilize exercises like Lateral Raises, Front Raises, Rear Raises, Face Pulls and Upright Rows in my workouts.


    I am really enjoying my second month of Nuclei Overload!  I hope you guys are training hard as well!
