Workout of the Week – Power 20 Workout

Having recently finished up with the 30 Days of HIIT advanced workout program by NeilaRey.com I decided I want to now try and build up more strength and muscle endurance.

Today’s workout is called Power 20 and it works the following muscles:

Forearm muscles (Brachioradialis and the Extensor carpi set), shoulders (deltoids – lateral, posterior and anterior), biceps, triceps, lower back, trapezius muscles (inferior, superior and middle portions), Rhomboid.

I did the workout with a slightly lower weight then I think I could have done but since this was my first time to try it I wanted to make sure I could finish each routine. Also, after watching my video I realized I need to work on my form a little more as well 🙂

The below video shows just parts of each routine except for the shrugs.  If you want to see the entire workout go to here on  YouTube.

All in all it was a great workout and my arms and shoulders definitely felt pumped up afterwards.

You can repeat the same workout several times a day.

What it works: Forearm muscles (Brachioradialis and the Extensor carpi set), shoulders (deltoids – lateral, posterior and anterior), biceps, triceps, lower back, trapezius muscles (inferior, superior and middle portions), Rhomboid.

Tips: When performing deltoid raises do not raise your arms past the height of your shoulders.

Make it better: Exhale sharply with the flexing of each major muscle group to bring your core into play.

Make it harder:  Perform the entire routine on the balls of your feet challenging your core and working both hamstrings and calves.

Body types this can work for: Anyone who wants to power up their arms.

Perfect for: Anyone who is looking for some extra arm strength. Great for those who are ready to challenge themselves and prove they have the arms to contain the strength they crave.
