My incredibly fit husband mentioned recently that he's ready to incorporate some additional strength training into his workout routine, and of course I was thrilled to write up some new workouts for him.
Honestly, I would absolutely complete this same workout if I wasn't in the middle of boot camp. But since a lot of the workouts I create are more focused on stabilization and strength endurance, I thought this one would be a welcome change, especially for anyone seeking some bulk.
In my NASM training, I learned about the three aspects of resistance training: stabilization, strength, and power. Within the strength phase, an emphasis on muscle size is called hypertrophy. I created a hypertrophy workout that left Terry feeling fatigued.
Some form cues:
- Upright Rows
- Walking Lunges (Note: Complete the said number of reps for each side.)
- Seated Lat Pull Downs
- Dumbbell Step Ups (Note: Don't alternate legs; complete all of one side, then complete all of the other.)
- Concentration Curl (Note: Complete the said number of reps for each side.)
- Dumbbell Squats
I hope it's a tough one for you! Get ready for some bulging biceps!
