I hope you’ve been enjoying your weekend and have made some time to get some exercise…

If you haven’t done so yet, I have a great video for you from Fitness Expert Craig Ballantyne.

Craig shows you how to do some great exercises to train your back and shoulders using dumbbells.

Here’s the video you need to watch…

Enjoy :)

Today I want to talk to you about muscle groups that are often overlooked when building a beach body. They are the deltoids, lats and upper back. Now, most people think that the chest, biceps and triceps are the only areas to train. If you really want to stand out at the beach with a nice V taper in your physique, you really need to train your shoulders and your upper back so you look great and have great posture when you are on the beach.

I’m going to show you a superset that will take you about 5 10 minutes to do when you are pressed for time or you can add it to your regular workout to help you build more muscle in the right spots.

The first exercise is a dumbbell shoulder press. Choose a weight where you can do 8-12 repetitions. Stand with feet shoulder width apart and start your shoulder press. Keep it controlled and be sure not to bang the weights together at the top. Press up overhead and slowly lower back down.

Move immediately into dumbbell rows. Choose a weight where you can do 8-12 repetitions on each side. Kneel on the bench, keeping your back leg slightly bent and put that lead hand flat on the bench with a slight bend in the elbow. Hold the weight down at arms length and row up. Keep your elbow tight to your body and your back flat and row it back down, keeping it controlled. Repeat 8-12 repetitions on the other side.

Rest 1 minute and repeat this superset 2 more times for a total of 3 times.
