BACK – (2 sets regular, 2 supersets) Plank SH Razor Pull Back SS with Standing DH Band Bent Over Row

Plank SH Razor Pull Back

  • Attach the door stop below the bottom hinge of the door and then close and lock the door.
  • Slide the desired resistance bands through the loop hole and attach the clips to the Razor.
  • If you are in the gym, lower the cable to the closest locking position to the floor and attach the Razor.
  • Start in the kneeling plank position or glute to heel form. Grab the Razor with your right hand and palm down, and place your left hand on the floor to stabilize your body.
  • Your starting position should be fully extended, facing the door or machine, with tension on the Razor.
  • Begin to pull back keeping a straight line from your elbow to the cable or band, with your forearm parallel to the ground, pushing through the floor the entire time.
  • At the back of the movement retract at the shoulder blade of the working side, and draw your elbow tight against your rib cage.
  • Release and follow the same line back to the starting position.
  • A complete set is when both sides have been worked.

Standing DH Band Bent Over Row

  • Use the handles out of the Band Kit and clip each end of the hook to one or more bands so that you have two handles on a band.
  • Bend your knees slightly and use both feet to stand on the middle of the resistance band.
  • Bend forward slightly at the waist and let both hands hang straight down for the starting position.
  • Then retract the shoulder blades moving both arms up at the same time, as you flex the elbow, drawing the handles towards your stomach or rib cage.
  • Lower the handles and repeat for recommended repetitions.

CHEST – (2 sets regular, 2 supersets) Plank SH Tension Razor Push Ups SS with Wide Grip Push Ups

Plank SH Tension Razor Push Ups SS

  • Place the pulley at the lowest setting, or the door stop 6” above the floor, select the resistance to be used and attach the Razor to the cable or band.
  • With a slight bend on the elbow holding the Razor in order to prevent stress at the biceps tendon, keep tension in the start plank/push up position.
  • Keep the hand holding the Razor steady and still as you begin the movement, keeping your head to your toes in a straight line, moving straight down.
  • As you move down, the arm holding the Razor performs a push up with tension as you try to keep it in one place.
  • Your chest should be only a few inches away from the Razor at the bottom, and if you are a beginner, just get as low as you can that still allows you to come up.
  • One complete set is when both arms have been worked. Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions and always start the next set using the opposite arm.

Wide Grip Push Ups

  • Get into pushup position on the toes or knees if you are a beginner, with your hands two hand widths outside of shoulder width.
  • Perform a pushup by allowing the elbows to flex.
  • As you descend, keep your body straight from your head to our toes, or knees.
  • Try to get a few inches off the ground for advanced and just get as low as you can if you are a beginner.
  • Follow the same line up and repeat for recommended repetitions.

BICEPS – (2 sets regular, 2 supersets) Standing Alternating Band or Dumbbell Curls SS with Plank SH Razor Curls

Standing Alternating Band Curls SS

  • Hook up both handles to the selected band(s) for resistance.
  • Stand up straight and stand on the band with both feet about shoulder width apart.
  • The palms of the hands should be facing your torso to start.
  • While holding the upper arm stationary, curl the right arm forward while contracting the biceps until your arm is at shoulder level.
  • Hold the contracted position for a second as you squeeze the biceps.
  • As you return the right arm down to the starting position, begin moving the left arm up, following the same line as the right arm.
  • One complete set is when both arms have been worked.
  • Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.

Standing Alternating Dumbbell Curls SS

  • Stand up straight holding a dumbbell in each hand with both feet shoulder width apart.
  • The palms of the hands should be facing your torso to start.
  • While holding the upper arm stationary, curl the right arm forward while contracting the biceps until your arm is at shoulder level.
  • Hold the contracted position for a second as you squeeze the biceps.
  • As you return the right arm down to the starting position, begin moving the left arm up, following the same line as the right arm.
  • One complete set is when both arms have been worked.
  • Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.

Plank SH Razor Curls

  • Place the pulley at the lowest setting, or the door stop 6” above the floor, select the resistance to be used and attach the Razor to the cable or band.
  • Get down in the push up, or plank position with your feet against the door or machine, and your palm down.
  • Put a slight bend on the elbow that is not holding the Razor in order to prevent stress at the biceps tendon and to get low enough to keep your working arm, elbow to shoulder, parallel with the ground for your starting position (for a beginner, or after muscle fatigue you can hold yourself up with the forearm of the non-working arm, instead of using your hand with a slight angle).
  • While keeping the elbow in one spot, and pushing through the floor, start with your arm fully extended and curl until your bicep is fully contracted.
  • Then follow the same line going back in a controlled fashion.
  • One complete set is when both arms have been worked.
  • Repeat the movement for the recommended repetitions.
