DAY 54:ARMS AND CALVES WORKOUT - KAGED MUSCLE

DAY 54 ARMS AND CALVES WORKOUT

Because these are small muscles, we’re going to really work on pumping blood into the target groups while keeping up heart rate. And we’re going to start with 5 biceps exercises followed immediately by weighted sled pushes and pulls. Take a close look at my video to see how Kai and Danielle incorporate sled pushes and pulls—alternate directions so you don’t need to turn the sled, and you can get in a solid 2 minutes of HIIT with weight.

You’ll perform the entirety of each circuit without resting. So, 5 weight-training exercises followed immediately by 2 full minutes of weighted sled pushes and pulls before you go immediately back into your next circuit. I want you to feel like your elevated heart rate is pumping blood into your target muscles, helping to create muscle growth while burning fat.

Next up is your triceps circuit. This one includes 4 weight exercises followed by tire sledgehammers. We’re applying the same philosophy—take this small target muscle group to failure, include some intense cardio, and then hit the muscle again. You’ll, in effect, perform a total of 15 sets with no rest.

Then, today’s workout ends with seated calves raises—20 reps slow and controlled, really emphasizing the stretch and contraction. And then you’ll perform as many reps as you can quickly, going to failure. I list that as 10 reps in the chart, but I want you to take this to your version of failure. When you watch the video, I want you to see how many reps Kai performs.

GETHIN’S GO-TO:The intensity of these circuits followed by a HIIT session with weights is key for today’s workout. But I’m aware that you may not have access to each of the moves I mention in the workouts. Still you can find excellent substitutes. These include battle ropes, burpees, jump rope, mountain climbers or jumping jacks. The key is to understand the purpose of each move rather than to just shrug and give up if you don’t have a particular exercise available to you. I know it’s a complicated message, but you need to be both disciplined and adaptable if you truly want to succeed. The key is finding that balance.
