Whole Body Workout At Home.

Hey guys,

How are you doing? Had a nice weekend? Atleast I did.
Unfortunately we are back at work again. I promised you guys to write a post about good chest and back exercises, but because of the lack of time I couldn’t manage to write it on Friday.

So, today I will show you some good exercises to work that chest and back when you’re at home. When you don’t have enough time to workout in the gym, like I do, you can workout at home as well. I know that feeling that you got: “I really need to workout again. I will start on monday again..” If you ask me: that ain’t gonna happen. I got a good workout which will train all of your muscles.

Workout #1. You need to do every exercise at least 4 sets of 10 reps. You can choose to the whole workout schedule 3 times a week (all exercises per day) or you can split it up in 2 days and that you train 4 times a week at home.

Chest:
– Side To Side Push Ups (Step left with your left leg and left arm, push up, step right with both and push up. That’s how you should do it. You can also Google it if you don’t understand what I mean).
– Triangle Push Ups (You need to make a triangle with your thumbs and forefingers. So let your hands point to eachother and push up like that)
– Diver Bomb Push Up
– Push Up + Clap

Back:
– Prone Cobra
– Dumbell Dead Lift
– Bent Over Dumbell Rows
– Chin Ups -OR- One Arm Dumbell Row

Shoulders:
– Arnold Press
– Bent Arm Side Lateral
– Dumbell Front Raises
– Shrugs

Triceps:
– Chair or Table Dips
– Skullcrushers
– Kickbacks
– Dumbell Tricep Extension

Biceps:
– Dumbell Curls
– Hammer Curls
– Concentration Curls
– Overhead Dumbell Curls

Legs:
– One Leg Chair Squat
– Dumbell Squat
– Lunges
– Sitting against the wall (1 minute)

Abs:
– Follow my weekly schedule!

The only thing you need for some exercises is the TRX or dumbells. Of course, you can do them without as well and just use some towels or other objects that have a good weight. Next to that, the pull ups and push ups are good for the shoulders, abs, back, chest, biceps and triceps. So if you don’t have enough time, they work the other muscles as well.

I hope you enjoyed it and that you actually might try this workout. Good luck!

Sincerely,

Mathieu Duijst

Tirceps & Trapezius

Hi y’all,

Today I want to talk about exercises to train the triceps pretty good and also about the exercises for your trapezius. This one is good because a lot of exercises help you grow but make you walk bended over as well, which is not the right way to walk.

First I got a movie for you guys with a lot of tricep exercises. I don’t do that much of exercises in my workout, just because I don’t have the time for it. I can barely make it to train 3 times a week for 1,5 hour max. With this number of exercises per musclegroup, well it would take days.

Pretty nice tricep if you ask me. The exercises that I got in my workout now are: High Pulley Overhead Cable Tricep Extension, Skullcrushers, Dips, Reverse Grip Cable Tricep Extension One-Handed. I think that 4 exercises is enough for you workout schedule if you do it 4 sets of 12 reps per exercise. Of course, every 4-6 weeks you change your schedule and then you can pick some other exercises, but these work great for me!

Next to that, the trapezius.. How many of you do an exercise for the trapezius with the shoulders bended over when you do the exercise? Well, I know a lot of people and I used to do it myself as well. The guy in the video explains pretty good why it isn’t working when you do it wrong.

As you can see he pulls his shoulders backwards. The way that he explains is a way to do it. Of course you can grab a bar as well and make shrugs with the bar behind you. I use the shoulder press machine to do it. I step on the seat and grap the handles behind me and do it that way. You can do it however you want, just remember that you hold your shoulders to the back.

Well, this was it about triceps and trapezius. Back & Chest exercises are coming up! Keep in touch, stay tuned and enjoy your day!

Sincerely,
