Fitness Kick Start: Chest and Shoulders Focus.
I rarely do body-part split workouts any more. I have a solid muscle base and don’t need to build much more. I also despise working certain muscle groups, and began skipping those days all together for some extra time on the elliptical with a Keeping Up with the Kardashians marathon.
Nothing like burning some brain cells while you’re burning some fat.
Some days, I’m just really in the mood to hit a muscle group hard, if for no other reason that I want to lift heavy.
Chest is one of those muscle groups that I just dread working. It’s a complete snoozefest.
So I added some shoulder exercises in today to keep me interested. And of course, some cardio bursts at the end. I just can’t sit still.
Chest & Shoulders Supersets
4 sets of 10 reps for each
Incline dumbbell chest press
Overhead shoulder press
Dumbbell chest fly
Dumbbell lateral side raise
Barbell front raise
60 seconds Mountain climbers
Repeat the last 3 exercises twice.

I have some dreaded body parts to work..namely biceps!!
This routine sounds great, this is defiantly something I’ve been looking for!! I think I’ll try a (MODIFIED haha) version later this week.
love it…i always superset ,it shortens the workout and keeps my HR up!! I want to workout with you Jess!!
So you would recommend for people trying to build muscle to work separate body parts first? :S
Not necessarily. I’ve had clients see great results with a solid 4 day upper/lower split.
I love working chest! It’s legs I dread. Looks great.
I hate a love/hate relationship with legs. I dread biceps.
What is a burpee?
If you are a beginner, you can skip the pushup in the middle.
Oh! I do those all the time. I call them “Floor Humpers” though.
I like that name better. :)
Awesome workout! I’m definitely doing this strength routine in place of one of mine this week
