Daily Extras -
It's a 45 min workout. You won't need extra. Your all good here. If you need a little more, go heavier during the workout. See warnings below first!
- This FRICKIN workout is a "soremaker!" Unfortunately the only thing that will prepare you for STAB is - STAB! Those of you who are unprepared & choose to Rx are likely going to feel it for a couple of days!
- Try leaning over a smidge (like 20-30 deg) while doing upright rows. Doing so will help isolate and target your rear delts. This will finish the shoulders more nicely since front raises work primarily the fronts of your delts & OH DB presses target mid delts. Only thing left are rear delts.
- In the old days, we only had 3-4 people (out of several hundred) finish all of the triceps complexes. If you are ready - push yourself to get them all! If you get every rep with good form you will have accomplished what others have said was impossible (Seriously, a couple of ladies heckled me the first time we did this workout. They were, like "it's IMPOSSIBLE to Rx this!" They were trainers. They stormed out & NEVER came back. It's true, the first day hardly anyone Rx'd this. But, now everyone does. IN YOUR FACE stupid ladies.
- Take NO REST during abs. We break 30 - 60 secs between rounds of the arm stuff. We don't break at all during abs. Just keep rocking till all the reps are done. This has a cool effect. A cardio effect. Makes you breath heavily and cranks on the rain (IOW you'll get a bit sweaty).
- Not that the biceps 21s aren't hard enough, but IF you are looking for more out of this movement, do them backwards. IOW take "rests" in the mid position with arms bent at 90 degrees. That'll fire em up - TYT!
Jayne has been with us longer than almost anyone. Started with us over 7 years ago. Has made progress EVERY FRICKIN YEAR. Seriously, she's lost over 10 lbs per year for a total of "about 76 lbs." Pic on the L was 2012. Pic on the R was yesterday.
Happy 73rd birthday (I have permission) Jayne! Thank you for the inspiration!
