Have you been trying to get that chiseled ultimate V-shaped back and slimmed down waist? Well it’s time to try this V-shape shortcut and begin sculpting a great pair of shoulders and get that slimmer waist with this killer workout challenge!
You will start off with three exercises that focus on your front, rear, and middle deltoids (the roundish looking muscle that nears the top of your upper arm and the one you can see when sporting a sleeveless shirt). To shred your gut, step back to the schoolyard and dust off that old jump rope. Perform this routine every weekend until the first day of summer and challenge yourself to get that perfect V-shape.
Perform the exercises listed in the order shown below; then repeat.
Dumbbell lateral Raise – Grab a set of 15-pound dumbbells and have them hang at your arm’s natural length at your sides while keeping your palms facing each other. Without changing the bend in your elbows, raise your arms straight out to your sides until they re at shoulder level. Pause for a few seconds, and then slowly lower the weights back to the starting position. That is one complete repetition; perform 10.
Dumbbell Rear Lateral Raise – Begin by bending forward at your hips until your torso is about parallel to the floor. Let your pair of dumbbells hang straight down from your shoulders while keeping your palms facing each other. While keeping your torso immobile, raise your arms straight out to your sides until they are in line with your body. Slowly lower your weights back to the starting point. That is one full repetition; perform 10.
Jumping Rope – With every jump you take, your weight should be on the balls of your feet while keeping your knees slightly bent. Do not jump higher than an inch off the ground, as your goal is to maintain a fast rhythm. Remember to keep your body upright with your eyes facing forward and keeping your elbows close while making small circles with your wrists! Complete 30 full jumps.
Are you ready to give it a try? Aim for completing the circuit twice in less than 3 minutes. If you are able to fully perform the entire routine in less than 3 minutes, aim for performing the circuit 5 times while keeping up the same intensity. Before you know it those well-defined set of shoulders alongside a slimmer waist will arrive just in time for that first beach outing. You will have all the guys (or girls, whichever floats your boat) starring!
