Body Beast: Bulk: Shoulders

Updated: Nov 12

This morning was the first time for doing Bulk: Shoulders and I was pretty amped to lift heavy! This is going to be my last review for awhile (I have one Tempo review left to do)!

  • Length: 35 minutes

  • Equipment needed: Bench or stability ball (I choose the ball to work my core and because I do not have a bench), curl bar (optional) & weights.

Disclaimer: my photos were taken after I finished the workout AND the INSANITY warm-up. Thus, I am sweaty and my hair is a tornado.

Warm Up:

This is 2:50 minutes of jogging, arm circles, light weight arm raises, shoulder presses, upright rows, reverse flyes, and a light jog again. It has a lot of weight lifting compared to the other warm-ups. I was already getting a work out with my 8lbs.

Lateral Raise/Arnold Press

  • Round 1: lateral raise: 15 reps

  • Round 1: Arnold press: 15 reps

  • Round 2: lateral raise: increase weight: 12 reps

  • Round 2: Arnold press: increase weight: 12 reps

  • Round 3: lateral raise: increase weight: 8 reps

  • Round 3: Arnold press: increase weight: 8 reps

  • Drop set: Arnold press: decrease weight: 8 reps

When Sagi gets ready to do the Arnold Press for the first time he says,

‘Arnold Press! My favorite guy. My hero. That’s right’

He also says things like:

'We want Beasty shoulders!’

We’re movin’ on. We’re goin’ places. We’re in a hurry to get HUGE!’

The Arnold Press is interesting - and it was killing me at the end.

Upright Row:

  • Round 1: 15 reps

  • Round 2: increase weight: 12 reps

  • Round 3: increase weight: 8 reps

Take a short break…my quads are gettin’ biggah!

'One on on with The Chosen One.’

'You guys at home - Chill. Out.’

  • Round 4: heaviest weight: 8 reps

  • Round 5: decrease weight: 12 reps

  • Round 6: decrease weight: 15 reps

At one point, Sagi is kneeling on the ground waiting for them to change plates and he actually peeks around his bench and says:

'Can’t hide me! I’m not hiding. I’m not goin’ anywhere.’ (to the camera):

It was hilarious.

Alternating Front Raise/Plate Twist-Twist:

  • Round 1: front raise: 15 reps

  • Round 1: plate twist: 10 reps

  • Round 2: front raise: increase weight: 12 reps

  • Round 2: plate twist: 10 reps

  • Round 3: front raise: increase weight: 8 reps

  • Round 3: plate twist: 10 reps

During the first one, Scotty gets in trouble while doing front raises because he is turning the weight.

Sagi:

'Nope! Straight up! You gotta listen…. I want straight up! I’m gonna drop you a score next time. That’s right. I’m gonna write it right there!!’

'Twist, twist. Down! Up!’

'Pick it up!! Why you breathin’ so heavy?’

I am pretty sure my favorites are:

'You’re not a quitter…. if you finish.’

Scotty, did you eat breakfast? Do you need a hug?’

I peeked through the hole of the plate (you can see in the last photo). I’m a careful driver, for sure.

Reverse Fly

  • Round 1: 15 reps

  • Round 2: increase weight: 12 reps

  • Round 3: increase weight: 8 reps

Check out this view:

'Everything touching on the bench. I want your whole body to hug the bench’.

Quick break…

  • Round 4: heaviest weight: 8 reps

  • Round 5: decrease weight: 12 reps

  • Round 6: decrease weight: 15 reps

My favorite:

'Scotty! Your form SUCK.’

Mine did too - so I switched to doing reverse flyes on the chair.

Superman Stretch/Plank Twist-Twist:

  • Round 1: superman stretch: 10 reps

  • Round 1: plank twist: 30 seconds: max reps

  • Round 2: superman stretch: 10 reps

  • Round 2: plank twist: 30 seconds: max rep

At first I was doing them from a plank position (like in INSANITY), then I realized the guys were doing them on their knees. OKAY!! I can do that. :)

'We are alternating. We gonna fly.’

Are you guys good? Did you get it? Is your blood in your brain? (Mine is). I don’t know about that!’

Sagi asks Pretty Boy how he feels:

'How does it feel? (Good) Feels good. What is he gonna say? It feel HORRIBLE? NO! It feels great.’ :)

I laughed. Lulz.

Cool Down:

This is a minute of stretching your arms, lats, and shoulders. It’s quick!

I like that he says:

SCOTTY! You’re alright buddy’. Awww.

:)

Final Thoughts:

  • I like that Sagi does most of this entire workout with everyone else. This guy - miss a lifting session? I don’t think so!! :)

  • When I see Sagi, I sometimes see this:

  • I burned 282 calories doing Bulk: Shoulders which was not too bad. I was sweating quite a bit so I know I was working my shoulders. I decided to do INSANITY Cardio Power & Resistance afterwards. Talk about sweating… and burning calories. I burned 505 more calories. Total: a lot.

  • Here’s my Flex Friday photo (after Body Beast, INSANITY, and sweating like a moron).

Slowly, but surely! I hope everyone has a great weekend! :)
