Golden Eagle Workout

I chose the name Golden Eagle for this workout as the Golden Eagle is a swift-flying, majestic bird, and so is this workout. You’ll need a barbell and one kettlebell for this workout.

 

The workout targets:

  • biceps (several angles)
  • quadriceps
  • gluteus
  • deltoids
  • abdominals

 

Assisting:

  • latissimus dorsi to pull the shoulder down into it’s socket
  • triceps to lockout the elbow
  • teres minor, to help hold the humeral head in the glenoid cavity of the scapula
  • trapezius (inferior region), to depress the scapulae
  • rhomboids, to push the chest out

 

The exercises are:

  • 3 wide grip barbell bicep curls
  • 3 neutral grip barbell bicep curls
  • 3 close grip barbell bicep curls
  • 5 sets of kettlebell combo on the left
    • dead swing clean
    • strict press
    • overhead squat
    • overhead reverse lunge
  • 5 sets of kettlebell combo on the right
    • dead swing clean
    • strict press
    • overhead squat
    • overhead reverse lunge

Repeat for 8 rounds or adjust accordingly.

 

For the warm-up and as part of the workout we did:

  • 100 jumping jacks
  • 30 surrenders
  • 50 chest push-ups

 

Benefits of the workout:

  • working a muscle group normally not targeted much in kb training, the biceps
  • flexibility
  • mobility
  • range of motion
  • stability
  • shoulder strength
  • quad strength

 

This is not a fast workout, it is to be performed with control and slowly to take advantage of what this workout can offer you.
