Just like our 10-Minute Bicep, Tricep and Shoulder workout, in this video GHUTV trainer Shelly Hawkins will take your through some basic strength moves that build muscle in the upper body without building bulk. This is about being sculpted and toned. Right off the bat Shelly gets you down for unique push-up that gets this chest and shoulder workout started off the right way. Push-ups are definitely the king of all chest exercises. Then you’ll move right into an army crawl exercise that works not just chest and shoulders but incorporates your core body muscles too!
You’ll find all of these moves simple enough to follow, but challenging enough to keep you thinking and keep you focused – big time! The shoulder exercises are designed to build strength in your shoulders and help you avoid future injury that so often occurs in the shoulders. Whether everyday routines or exercising with bad form, shoulders are vulnerable. If you have any issues with your shoulders, check out these exercises for shoulder pain.
The best part of this chest and shoulder workout is that is only takes 10 minutes out of your day. You don’t need to carve out an hour to get your workout in. Squeeze in 10 minutes at a time and it won’t take long to see progress! Take a look around GHU TV for more free 10-minute workouts!
I used a pair of 7 lbs weights, and it was challenging enough. Hoping I will feel strong the next time I do this. That plank sequence was hard on my because it’s difficult to hold myself up, but i modified by being on my knees and elbow, although I could tell that was too easy. All in all, it was a good quick workout.
As a beginner, I found it difficult to hold the moves. I should have watched the video first, so I would know the positions. My arms really feel it!
