Body Beast: Bulk: Shoulders

June 7, 2013

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!  :)
