I Wanna Be Like Dwight!!

Last Monday was my day to create Dwight Howard Baby Boulders as I like to call them :) As you may recall, I'm on a mission to have shoulders like the ones in this picture or this picture. I'm not quite at Dwight's level by I'm definitely making progress!

Tom shot a video of last Monday's shoulder workout and I want to give you a little background about what's going on in the video before you view it.

As most of you know, Tom creates my workouts and this was one of his more brutal creations :) He wanted to incorporate a lot of mid-delts by using supersets and dropsets. The idea was to create separation but also tie in pre-exhausting the delts. You will see me posing at the end of some of the sets. I was doing this to help feel the exact muscles I had just worked on and recognize what muscles I want to pop while I'm on stage - mind/muscle connection, baby!!

The workout consists of the following:

Superset #1 - Lateral raises --> Upright rows
Superset #2 - Military press --> Bent-over raises
LifeFitness Rear Delt machine
LifeFitness Lateral Raise machine
Kettlebell Front Raises (in squat position)

I hope you enjoy the video and I want you to know...the comment about Zumba....all Tom...he's such a smartass ;)
