#FreakMode: Alex Savva's 12-Week Fitness Plan - Week 11, Day 71

Boulder shoulders and bulging biceps are on the docket today. Make every movement count!

While they might be common to you now, know that each of these exercises is challenging you daily. A few of the exercise variations I integrated into your routine are intrinsically more difficult. The standing overhead shoulder press, for example, requires more stability than its seated counterpart.

Standing also generates more neuromuscular activity in the deltoid and activates the biceps and triceps to a greater extent. Just remember to keep some key elements of form in mind: Keep your core tight to protect your lower back, and maintain a microbend in your knees to absorb the load.

Know that, with each of these exercises, I’m ensuring you get the most bang for your buck.
