Tip Sheet: Shawn Rhoden

2012 Europa Super Show, winner.


-“I like to use the Smith machine for overhead presses sometimes as a change of pace. You’re able to go heavier without worrying about balancing the weight.”

-“To finish of chest, I superset dips with pushups, using just my body weight and going to failure on both. Three supersets make certain my pecs are thoroughly pumped.”

-“For hamstrings, I use higher reps. I go up to 25 reps per set on every ham exercise.”

-“I do a lot of volume for shoulders. It’s right around 30 sets total and usually seven exercises. But delts are a complex area. If you think of each delt head as a separate muscle, it’s really not a crazy amount of work.”
