FOLLOW ALONG SHOULDER WORKOUT

FOLLOW ALONG SHOULDER WORKOUT

Mary:

What's going on, everyone? I'm back with another Follow Along Workout. Today, we're going to be doing sexy sculpted shoulders, and it's going to be all banded. This is something you can absolutely do at home, just like I am, or you can do it at the gym. It is totally up to you. All you will need today are two longer loop bands, a lighter one, and a more difficult moderate mine. So I actually have a light resistance one and a more medium moderate. It's really up to you, your strength level. If you want to use a more moderate one as your easy one and an even more difficult one, that's completely up to you. You will only need two. It's completely up to you. We're going to do a total of five movements and we're going to do them all for three sets. And it's going to be similar to the other Follow Along Videos where it's just so many seconds of a movement and then so many seconds of rest before we switch.

Mary:

But instead today is actually not going to be a circuit. It's going to be all of those movements in a particular order. So like strength training where you don't really do a circuit, you just do your one movement at a time. You do all the sets you need for that movement and then you move to the next one. It'll be like that, but timed instead of for reps. So, that's how today is going to be. I'm really excited for it. I have to do love shoulder workouts. I think this particular exercise is really important. The joint itself is such a finicky joint so doing certain movements to protect it like the very first one that they were going to do as a warmup is really, really important. So get your bands and let's get to it.

Mary:

Mary:

All right, guys, you made it. I don't know about you, but I have an absolutely great, an absolutely phenomenal shoulder pump right now. I can feel so much blood flow into my upper body right now, it feels amazing. Even in the warmups sometimes they actually get a really, really good amount of burn. So I really like workouts like this, especially for ones that you can do them at home and they're super quick. I think there's just so many good things about workouts like this. Again, it's a version of strength training where you are sticking to each movement and doing all of the sets before you move onto your next movement versus a circuit. But what I liked so much about this one is instead of doing them for reps, you're doing it for time and you're keeping your rest periods pretty short.

Mary:

So, for today, we actually did 20 seconds of movement and 15 seconds of rest simply because we were doing the same movement for a few sets before we switched. So I wanted to give it a little bit longer than just the typical 10 second rest like we've normally done. And this way it gave you a little bit longer in between to really catch your breath before you started really pushing, because at least with the standing shoulder press, with the heavier band, I really, really liked being able to have a good amount of rest in between so you can really get the movements down and focus on form. I'd rather form over everything. So I was really, really focused on controlling my movements during the entire time. I really want to make sure I feel it versus rush through it. This is not a race. I understand it's for time, but it's not a race to see how many reps you can squeeze in. It's really all about feeling that movement the entire time.

Mary:

So, again, at least for the side lateral ones, obviously that was one arm at a time, so three sets for each side. A total of five movements. We actually did the pull-aparts twice at the beginning and at the end, like a warmup and like a cool down type of movement. So every single head of the shoulder was hit today and I think it's really, really important for things like that. Again, the shoulder joint is such a finicky joints and if you're not careful you really can't hurt yourself. So, again, it's all about form, not about rushing. So I'd really hope you enjoyed this workout. I know I did. I feel really good about myself. I'm really good about this. Again, you can take workouts like this on the go with you. If you're on vacation, you can just bring your bands with you and you're good to go. You can do this at the gym if you really feel like. You could do it at home. You could really do it anywhere and it really didn't take you that much time.

Mary:
