Now that you’re a few weeks into the Eternal Beach-Body Workout Plan, you’ve likely started achieve more mobility in your hips and shoulders. All those shoulder mobility drills may not feel like much, but they’ll go a long way toward keeping your shoulder joints healthy and nimble as you continue to lift weights.
With this workout, the tenth in Eternal Beach Body Phase I, you’ll put that mobility and durability to the test. With a barrage of difficult exercises designed to isolate muscles in your chest, back, triceps, biceps, and deltoids—plus some planks and jump squats to keep things interesting—this workout will be your best upper-body test yet.
Do each exercise in straight sets; complete all sets of each exercise before moving on to the next.
Make sure you pay attention to the designated rest—20 seconds will go by fast, and you’ll be well served by tracking your rest periods on your watch or on a clock.
Because the rest periods are so short and the volume is so high, don’t be afraid to choose relatively light weights.
