I’m all about following every little detail to any program I take on. Four week, eight, ten, twelve, whatever it may be. I don’t deviate.
But if there’s a period of a couple weeks where I’m not really working on anything particular, I like to experiment with odd, one-off workouts. Sometimes these workouts are just fun challenges that I know burn loads of calories and will help keep me lean, or in this case, if a body part is stuck, or plateaued, I need something new.
The Muscle Shocker Workout series was created to do exactly what is says, “shock” the system.
Throughout the year we’ll add more and more “shocker” workouts you can try, but for now, we have three main workouts based around three concepts.
The first is around the idea of “pre-exhausting” the muscles. This one is a demonstration for your chest. I can say, I’ve used this many times with great success.

The second one is focused on the “eccentric” part of the exercise. This demonstration targets the entire body; you might just be more sore throughout your entire body than you have ever been after this.

The third is focused on the “fascia” around the muscles. This demonstration targets the shoulders and traps.
