    So, you can do all four of those variations in one work out for that body part and be finished for that area? I’m not savvy on all of the different muscle groups, but I used to do over head presses when i’d work on my shoulders…sorry, i’m new to the detailed naming of workouts!!! πŸ™‚ I’m more of the old skool: Back & Bi’s, Chest & Tri’s, Legs & Shoulders…grouped workouts!

  4. Gina says:

    Jenn– yes you can do all four of those variations in one workout and then what I would do is supplement them with a side lateral exercise, rear delt and a front raise and there you have a great shoulder workout! These 4 press exercises are just variations of the press that is the core of our shoulder workout. no worries on being new to the exercise names, I will help you learn them over the coming weeks!

    My suggestion on your split is
    upper chest (only) and tri’s
    Shoulders — by themselves (incl. front and rear)
    lower body

    Glad you are liking the tips and finding them helpful. I know how it is when you tend to do the same things over and over and need a refresher on changing things up. Always trying to offer new ways, ideas with my special style of training… glad we are off to a great start with the training tips. Great ideas ladies to bring this back!! off to do some running intervals! πŸ˜‰

    Hi Gina – If someone just wanted to tone but not build muscle, how many reps and sets… would you do all 4 in a row kind of like you showed with the row in that circuit a few weeks back? Or would you put the side laterals and front raises in between?
    Part of the reason I ask is that I’ve been doing your suggestion of 100 to 150 light deadlifts (using squat rack bar…. LOVE THIS exercise by the way – thank you) and I heard yesterday that Cross Fit is causing a lot of injuries via repetitive use/overpatterning. That made me wonder if it’s such a good idea to be doing such high reps of the same body part. What say you?

    • Gina says:

      Hi londin!! I would stick with lighter weight, focusing on squeezing, elongating the muscle with stretching, rolling on a foam roller, and doing more plyos and higher sets/reps. The circuit vidoes I am offering are key and going to continue to help you with your goals! Keep up the great work!! πŸ™‚
