13 Jun 45-Minute Shoulder Sculpting Workout
Welcome to Week 6 of Bikini Bootcamp 2017! Over the next 8 weeks I am going to be posting some of the toughest MFit workouts ever. These videos will all include strength training, fat burning cardio, and stretching. I will be giving away some of my best tips and exercises to burn fat and build muscle. Let's get swimsuit ready!
Today's workout is all about the shoulders! It's summer time, which means tank tops, bikinis, and very little clothing. You are going to want your shoulders to look good. In my opinion, strong sculpted shoulders are super sexy. So let's work on those today!
If you want to grow your shoulder muscles, try to lift heavy weights during the shoulder circuit at the end of the workout. If you simply want to tone the muscles, you can lift slightly below your max. No matter what, choose a weight that challenges you and allows you to feel the burn!
Feel free to print out the workout below to take it with you to the gym or follow along with the video:
