Scott Herman's Getting Fit VIDEO: Bodybuilding pump!

Switch up your muscle gain split with "Bodybuilding PUMP!" Supersets are a great way to not only save time, but to maximize your pump during a workout increasing both muscle endurance and size. The challenge here is to progressively overload when possible and focus on absolute muscle fiber breakdown. If that isn't enough, we are going to torture your already fatigued back & triceps with 50 burpees AS FAST AS POSSIBLE! #HTH

Scott Herman's Getting Fit VIDEO: Weighted chin-up

If you are having a hard time building muscle in your biceps then try adding "weighted chin-ups" to your workout.

Keep in mind that if you perform the reps with a SLOW negative you stand a better chance of building muscle. The negative part of any movement causes the muscle to lengthen and stretch beyond it's normal threshold thus causing more damage for repair. When building muscle the more damage the better!

Scott Herman's Getting Fit VIDEO: Rear kick

Your glutes are the largest muscles in your body and making them as strong as possible should always be a main objective. Especially if you want to increase your Squat and Deadlift.

On your next leg day try supersetting a the "Rear Kick" with your squats. Perform 15 Squats and immediately following superset 15 rear kicks per side. Hold the contraction at the top of the movement when your leg is fully extended for maximum glute activation.

NOW GO TEAR IT UP HERMANITES! #HTH

Scott Herman's Getting Fit VIDEO: Incline chest press

If you are having trouble with pain in your shoulders when you incline bench press it could be a simple form correction that can get you back on track.

Most people forget that by pinching your shoulderblades together you are creating more stability in your upperbody, especially with heavier weight. You also want to make sure that your elbows are not flaring out away from your body too much as well.

If your goal is strength try sticking to a low rep range of 2-6 reps per set. For muscle gain, kick it up to 12-15 reps per set.

Scott Herman's Getting Fit VIDEO: Toe touch

This is one of my favorite abdominal exercises to sneak in during my "rest periods."

If you focus on a hard contraction on the way up and a slow negative, your abs will be screaming after 15-20 reps.

Try it today and let me know how you feel Nation! #HTH

Scott Herman's Getting Fit VIDEO: Arm circles

Most of us go from our beds, to the kitchen chair to eat breakfast, then to the car to drive to work, then to the work desk, then back to the car, and then FINALLY to the gym!

That is A LOT of "work" before you actually take the time to loosen up and STRETCH!

Arm circles are a quick way to loosen up your shoulders and get the blood flowing in your upper body.

If you are just waking up, take 5 minutes to do 20 reps clockwise and then 20 reps counter-clockwise.

Scott Herman's Getting Fit VIDEO: Standing cable double bicep curl

Although the curling "motion" is the same, a standing bicep curl is definitely a sure way to switch up your routine for great results.

Changing the plane of motion will force you to still activate your biceps, but also some different muscles during the exercise.

For example, if you have never done this before, you might feel very unstable around your shoulders, so start off light and maintain control throughout the entire movement.
