I am endng my last post of November with an awesome muscle building shoulders and glute workout I did recently. Shoulders are one of my favorite muscle groups to work. I’m not really sure, but I just like the definition that it gives on a person’s body and with 3 deltoid groups to work, there are so many exercises you can do to work them. I typically do circuit training, because my body responds well to that way of working out. I can’t stand, waiting around at the gym, in between sets, then moving onto another exercise, etc. So my workout goes faster, I dont get bored, plus I burn more fat this way.
Muscle Building Shoulders & Glute Workout
I’ve had to take it easy here lately, due to straining my sacrum joint during a landmine move. It’s so important to have the proper posture and slight bend in your knee. Even though I always am conscious about my posture during a workout, it just goes to show if you make the wrong move one time, it can cause an injury. Thankfully, I am on the mend and was able to get in a 3 mile run before this workout. I took it slow, listened to my body, and it felt so invigorating to just get outside and move! If there’s one thing that ticks me off, it’s an injury. I do NOT like taking time off from working out. It’s my zen, it’s literally my therapy!
Here’s my workout: 3 sets of 12-15 reps
- Assisted Pistol Squats
- Rope Face Pulls
- Plate front raises and lateral raises
- Plate Chest press and tricep press
- Dumbell Shoulder Press
- Upright rows on Smith Machine
- Landmine Squats
- Plate Bicep curls and overhead wrap arounds
- Plate lateral raises
