Strengthening shoulder workout

For all the girls carrying the world on their shoulders, Karey Northington provides an epic upper body circuit designed to build strength and create some serious shape.

The why

This workout is a fantastically efficient time saver that hits the deltoid from multiple angles, creating beautifully sculpted shoulders. Using dumbbells, the body bar and the plate help vary the muscles used and make the workout convenient to do almost anywhere. With today’s busy schedules, it’s crucial to have at-home options that save a trip to the gym.

The do

Complete 12 reps of each exercise one after the other, with little to no rest in between. Begin with two rounds, working your way up to four rounds as you become stronger and fitter. Rest for 60 to 90 seconds between each round.

Start by holding the body bar with a pronated grip and hands shoulder width apart, elbows slightly bent. Raise bar to chin height engaging anterior deltoid. Control bar back to start position.

Dumbbell shoulder press

Lift dumbbells and rotate hands so palms are facing up. Start with dumbbells even with your ears and press overhead without letting the dumbbells touch. Return to start position and repeat.

Hold dumbbells at sides, palms facing your body and elbows slightly bent. Raise arms leading with your elbow and small finger to shoulder height. Lower slowly to starting position and repeat

Holding a plate on each side, raise to chin height and rotate plate from side to side. Lower and repeat.

Tip: challenge yourself by doing 12 front raises alone with the plate to pre-fatigue the muscles, and then holding the plate in the top position to complete reps rotating the plate.

 

Low plank to high plank

Start in a low plank position on your forearms, with your feet shoulder width apart and your lower back flat. Push your body up into a high plank position, first onto your right hand then onto your left. Lower yourself back down to the low plank position one arm at a time.  Repeat, alternating which arm pushes up first.

Want to try something new to really test yourself? Find out why #RUNSUPYOGA is the challenge of choice this summer

If the dismal walls of the gym or the repetitive views of your daily running route are getting a tad old then here’s your chance to inject some vitality back into your fitness.

Fashion fave Roxy is bringing its global #RUNSUPYOGA tour to the UK where 3,000 girls can run, paddle and practise yoga in this famous fitness event. Think triathlon but instead of rain and mud, you’ll be pushing yourself on a sandy beach with a stunning sea. Sounds good to us!

Thousands of girls took part in the first event hosted in Barcelona as part of Roxy’s 25thanniversary celebrations. Time to get among the action as the Roxy #RUNSUPYOGA tour will be travelling around the world visiting Hawaii and France before coming to Fistral beach on 25thJuly in Newquay, Cornwall here in the UK.

You’ll be starting the day off by getting wet and wild with a 2km stand-up paddle (SUP) in the sea before moving on to the serene views that Fistral beach has to offer on a 5km run. Finally you’ll be finishing with your best downward dog under the glorious sun with a yoga sesh.

The combination of activities are sure to provide a much-needed break from your usual routine and will help you discover skills you never knew you had. Your traditional run will look empty in comparison with this 5km that’ll have you soaking up a picturesque view of Newquay in all its glory. The 45-minute yoga class will take place to a backdrop your dreams, too – essential for the Instagram obsessive.

Roxy ambassadors Natalie Fox, Lucy Foster, Amy Stapleford and Sophie Everard will be guiding you through the activities, so don’t worry about getting stranded along the way. The day will culminate with a celebratory jam sesh where you’ll be able to reflect on what you’ve just achieved and catch up with like-minded people.

For adventure-seekers everywhere this is a great a chance to work hard and play harder at one fitness event that’s worth getting stuck in to.
