Charles Glass shared a way to use one machine for multiple purposes during a superset.
Charles Glass knows a thing or two about building size and strength in the gym. As a bodybuilder, he developed a shredded physique with great size. Now, he is sharing his knowledge as a coach for others to try. Recently, Glass shared a superset to try during shoulder that can be done on one machine.
Glass is one of the best coaches in the sport because of his incredible attention to detail. During his career, Glass has put many workouts together and figured out which movements make muscles grow effectively. This time, he is doing so by cutting time and doing multiple things at once.
Charles Glass’ Shoulder Superset
Charles Glass took to YouTube to share this video. The super set consists of the plate-loaded deltoid and shoulder press machine. Glass positioned the arms underneath and then went across the body. He believes that turning the shoulders inward helps during the movement.
“THAT SHOULDER SHOULD COME TOWARD ME A LITTLE BIT. GLASS SAID. “YOU TURN YOUR BODY IN AS YOU MOVE ACROSS. A LITTLE HIGHER THAN THAT BUT KEEP PRESSING THE ARMS BACK SO THEY DON’T GO FORWARD. THERE YOU GO, NOW YOU’RE ON THAT DELT. NOW TAKE A BREATHER AND DO ALL THREE AGAIN.”
Glass continues to explain how machines can be used in different ways. this particular video focused on shoulders and the shoulder press machine.
“I WAS JUST TRYING TO SHOW HOW YOU CAN TAKE ONE MACHINE AND DO MULTIPLE THINGS ON IT, THAT’S ALL. SO, WE DID ALL THREE. ACTUALLY, WE COULD HAVE DONE FOUR BECAUSE SHE COULD HAVE DONE REAR DELTS BY FACING IN AND PUSHING UP.”
Charles Glass discusses why he begins with mid delts as well. This is because he believes it is the best place to get warm first and have blood pumped. This will benefit the lifter over the course of the workout.
“I DO MID BECAUSE I’M TRYING TO WARM ME UP A LITTLE BIT. TRYING TO GET THE BLOOD IN THAT AREA. FACING FORWARD, YOU’RE GETTING A WHOLE LOT OF BLOOD IN THAT WHOLE DELT AREA. NOW, WE WANT TO ISOLATE IT A LITTLE BIT, SO WE GO ACROSS THE BODY, THE NUMBER FRONT DELT. YOU’RE NOT HITTING THE MID.”
