When you have less time for gym, try supersets and partial reps at the end:)
a great example for superset is standing rope straight arm pulldown-to-rope high pulley rows. .
for that move you start with slightly bent back and about 2 feet away from the base. start with slow straight arm rope pulldowns to stretch and isolate the latissimus dorsi muscles, then just with slight change of grip and elbow positioning start doing high pulley rope rows which will isolate inner side of trapesius and almost all of your midback muscles! it is a very simple but great workout, and try to finish with 3-4 partial reps of rowing for great pump! (if you want you can add face pulls as the 3rd move and hit the rear delt muscles as well). .
also in the video, there is one of my favorite shoulder movements;
plate full rotation over the head; hold a 45lb plate with both hands and start rotation over your head and follow with the opposite direction, try to keep the distance between your head and plate same throughout the exercise and not hit your head(!), this exercise will exhaust allover your shoulders and traps, also will engage your core muscles for stabilization:). give it a try on your next shoulder or back day!💪🏻💪🏻

Great #shoulder and #arm workout today. today i realized that if you need #motivation, its not always looking at pictures on the internet and wanting to look like the worlds fittest people. sometimes your motivation can be the person right next to you. there has been a few times that @losingmanda has paused her fitness journey, but she always gets back on it! and today she said she felt like she was "starting over". seeing the #drive and #determination she had today definitely was motivation for me to continue what i'm doing and would be for anyone else! i'm super proud of her! #strong#livefit#gains#grind#neverstop#dedication#inspiration
first pushup progression: protracted pushups. push your scapulae in direction of the ground during the complete exercise.
this variation improves the strength of your shoulder with protracted scapulae.
they may help you developing conditional prerequisites for advanced skills like the #planche.
the protraction is mainly generated by m. serratus anterior and m. pectoralis minor. many people have lack motor control over these. this functional disorder of the shoulder-stabilizing muscles are often the reason for shoulder impingements e.g.
so this pushup variation can also prevent shoulder injuries.
Woke up today at 164lb. just a couple more weeks before i can gain again, which i am looking forward to like crazy!!!!!! i hope everyone's days going well & you're staying consistent with your goals no matter how difficult it seems.
#facepull the face pull is a dynamic exercise that increases strength in the shoulders, more specifically the rear regions of the shoulder. this exercise also develops strength in the forearms
