Gain Muscle and Lose Fat – Get Lean and Jacked Workout A

May 2, 2011

Superset #1:
Workout A is going to start with a classic exercise from the Turbulence Training Archives called the The Triple Press. This requires you to start in the shoulder press position (seated) and you are going to work your way down the bench into 3 different positions. You want to do 6-8 reps in the first position.

Drop the bench down half way and do another 6 reps. Youve gone to your weakest position to a stronger position.

Next, drop the bench down to the flat (also your strongest) position and do 6 more reps.

Move immediately to the inverted bodyweight rows with an overhand grip. Pull yourself up and squeeze your shoulder blades while keeping the movement nice and controlled.

Superset #2
Well start this superset with pushups. You will do 2 reps short of failure. If you dont know your maximum number, simply stop before you know you are at the end. You dont have to train to failure all the time.

Position your hands in front, slightly wider than shoulder width apart and slowly lower yourself down and drive back up. If you lower yourself slower, your reps will decrease.

Move immediately into barbell rows. Take the bar off of the rack and position your feet just about hip width apart. Push hips back with the bar at arms length and tuck your elbows up as high as you can, squeezing the muscles between your shoulder blades for 8 reps.

Rest and repeat 2 more times for a total of 3 supersets

Superset #3
For this upper body blast, were going to pair chin-ups with dips. These are 2 classic bodyweight exercises that dont just work your back and chest, but will work your arms as well.

Perform chin-ups with an underhand grip, slightly narrower than shoulder width apart. Hang down for the start position. Pull yourself up so your chin is above the bar. Lower yourself down in 4-counts, aiming for 6 reps. If you cant pull yourself up, only do the lowering phase. Get a chair or get a boost up and then slowly lower down.

Move immediately into dips. Remember, when you do dips, you will bring your knees up to your chest to move your center of gravity forward. This takes some of the stress off the rotator cuff. Pull your knees up, lean your chest forward, drop for a 3-second count down and drive back up. You will aim for 2 reps short of failure for these.

Abs Superset:
Finish your upper body blast with an abs superset. You wont do any intervals at the end of the workout this time.

The first exercise is a classic Stability Ball Rollout with a 5 second rolling out phase for 10 reps (1 minute to do the set). Stay upright and count down for 5 counts. You will have a nice strong stretch and contract abdominals to come up. You will perform these at a very slow pace.

The last exercise is called a Cross-Body Mountain Climber. You will start these in the pushup position and taking your opposite knee to the opposite elbow, alternating sides. Keep your body in a straight line as much as possible. You will do 10 reps on each side.

Rest and repeat superset 2 more times for a total of 3 supersets.
