After getting a little mixed up and reading the Lean Beast schedule rather than Huge Beast I thought I was lined up for a Beast Cardio workout. My legs are still burned out from Tuesday’s leg session so finding out that Shoulders was on the cards was a welcome relief.
This workout introduced a couple of new exercise to me. The EZ Bar Underhand Press, basically a barbell shoulder press with palms facing inwards and the amusingly named Sagi Six Way. The latter involves doing a seated lateral raise then at the top of the motion moving the weights forward until they’re in front of your face, then from there you lift them, straight arm, to a vertical position. Then you do it all in reverse for 1 rep in total. It’s a killer and an amazing way to finish off all three heads of the shoulder.
I loved this workout, just like the others it’s focussed on the combination of single, super, giant and drop sets which totally exhaust the whole shoulder girdle and traps. All-in-all it felt supremely effective.
Tomorrow is cardio, having had a quick look at the workout to see what was coming it looks like P90X plyometrics crossed with Insanity Plyo Cardio Circuit….with weights!
