These days all the social outlets such as Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter are populated with workouts or ideas that women need to focus on their bums/butts/glutes/tuchis… However, the body is a frame and we need to work everything not just one part. I’ve asked tons of male friends what they’re attracted to and the answers are primarily fit/curves/lean.
This workout focuses on my favorite body part: shoulders with a mix of abs and tabata. No one likes a slouch or droopy shoulders – get to work!
**All sets in this workout are to start with a light to medium weight for the first set and then progress in weight without compromising form or remain with a challenging weight.
**When moving from exercise to exercise or waiting between sets keep the rest no more than 60 seconds.
