Maximize your strength training routine by cutting out these time wasters.Read article
For big, broad shoulders, compound moves do the trick. But for muscle striation and dimension, putting different equipment and lesser-targeted muscles to use can deliver exactly what you’re looking for.
Transform your upper body with this specialized routine.
Your typical program consists of a big, compound exercise or exercises followed by isolation exercise, or exercises. For this particular approach, you’re going to chill out on the big lifts and double-down on the smaller ones. Isolation exercises are a great way to hyper-focus and zero in on one particular muscle, as well as tap into smaller, more discreet muscle fibers.
For 2-3 weeks, couple up a large muscle group (legs, back, chest) with a smaller muscle group (shoulders, arms, abs) or a push and a pull. Shoot for 1 day of rest between workouts. Cycle back onto your regular programming after the 2-3 weeks are up. Rest 30 seconds or less between sets.
Watch the video for detailed instructions on how to do the moves, as demonstrated by Eugene Isaev (@eugeneaesthetics), an LA-based certified personal trainer.
