Today, many lifters associate the barbell clean with advanced Olympic lifting, CrossFit, or balls-to-the-wall barbell complexes. But for Arnold, it was a staple movement for everyone looking to get stronger, from beginners on. Indeed, he favored the clean-and-press over the far more popular barbell military press.

“Why I prefer to start beginners out with the clean-and-press exercise rather than just shoulder presses is that the extra movement—lifting the barbell off the floor, bringing it up to shoulder height, and tucking the arms underneath to support it—works so many additional muscles besides the deltoids, specifically the back, traps, and triceps,” he wrote in “The Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding.”

Stick with the programmed reps and sets in today’s shoulder workout. Your biceps, on the other hand, are scheduled for shock treatment, just like your chest received yesterday. Today’s technique, one of Arnold’s favorites, is the 1-10 method. Read more about it below.

  • Follow rep ranges below unless listed otherwise.
    30 reps is a warm-up set.

    Technique 1-10 Method:
    After 1-2 warm-up sets, choose a weight that you’re only able to lift for 1 rep. After you perform that 1 rep, take just enough weight off to perform 2 reps. From there, do the same for 3 reps and 4 reps, going all the way up to 10 reps. This is brutal because you take no rest between sets. The only rest you get is when you’re unloading the weights. I loved this technique, and it’s a total shock to the muscle.

She was a true fighter..

You could see it in her eyes. She wasn’t born strong.. She was built strong. She didn’t come from the perfect home and even tho it may seem she were in the most favorable current situation, things were far from perfect. Despite her past, She kept her heart beautiful but her fight tough. She was focused, handling her own business and she made a decision to do more than just survive using courage, hard work and consistency.

Somedays she had no idea how she’d do it but she never made excuses or gave up and even when she failed, she got right back up. She learned that the hardest times in life were when she was transitioning from one version of herself to another.
