Day 1

1. Bench Press

Sets: 4 Reps: 10, 10, 6, 6

Grab the bar outside shoulder-width grip. Your shoulder blades should be squeezed together and your back arched. Take the bar out of the rack and squeeze it hard. Lower it to just below your sternum and then push your feet hard into the floor to help you press the weight up.

2. Shrug

Sets: 3 Reps: 10

Hold a barbell in front of your thighs at arm’s length. Shrug your shoulders as high as you can.

3. Incline Bench Press

Sets: 4 Reps: 5

Set an adjustable bench to a 30- to 45-degree incline and lie down on it. Squeeze the bar hard and arch your upper back. Lower the bar to the upper part of your chest, tucking your elbows close to you as it comes down. Once the bar touches your chest, push your feet hard into the floor. Press the weight up, focusing on pushing it back toward your face.

4. Seated Overhead Press

Sets: 3 Reps: 6

Grab the bar about shoulder width. Press the bar overhead and slightly backward so that it ends up in line with the back of your head at the top.

Hold a lightweight plate in each hand and raise your elbows out to your sides. Keeping a 90-degree bend in your elbows, rotate your forearms backward until

Day 2

1. Power Clean

Sets: 5 Reps: 3

Set a barbell on the floor, crouch down, and grab it with hands outside shoulder width. Explosively stand up and shrug the bar, coming up onto the balls of your feet. As the bar rises to chest level, flip your wrists over so that your palms face the ceiling and your upper arms are parallel to the floor. Allow your knees to bend as you absorb the force of the bar at your shoulders.

Sets: 4 Reps: 10, 8, 6, 4

Same thing as squat just load the bar on the front of your shoulders

4. Romanian Deadlift

Sets: 3 Reps: 6
