Day 44:Chest & Shoulders

My legs are really sore today, how are yours? We’re now in the second to last week and our attention must be on creating fullness and burning energy. This is why we’re doing supersets with short rest periods to induce more sarcoplasmic hypertrophy. This makes our muscles appear rounder and scorches through energy stores very quickly.

As we’re using a lot of exercises today which work the shoulder joint, I’m doing some rotator cuff exercises just to increase the elasticity within the joint and promote synovial fluid. Your shoulders can be a real weak link on an intense transformation like this one, so always take care of them before it’s too late.

Right, let’s get to it!
