5-10-5 Workout: Target Legs, Shoulders and Back

5-10-5 Workout: Target Legs, Shoulders and Back

This 5 - 10 - 5 workout is technically a full-body workout with some cardio, but it will specifically target your legs, back, and shoulders.

The 5-10-5 format makes reference to the rep scheme. It includes:

  • 5 bent over rows
  • 10 dumbbell squats
  • 5 shoulder presses

Before the Workout:

Figure out the weight of the dumbbells. Gauge it based on your upper body strength.

For beginners: Start with 10 pounds

Intermediate: 20 - 25 pounds

Advanced: 35 pounds or more

 

During the Workout:

Complete the rep scheme five times as fast as you can, with the best form and efficiency possible. 

Remember: Each round consists of: 5 bent over rows, 10 dumbbell squats, and 5 shoulder presses.

  • Bent over rows: Squeeze your shoulder blades, and lift the dumbbells in a nice, clean way up to your shoulders. If the dumbbells are not that heavy, you can do a little curl before positioning for the squats.
  • Squats: Keep a nice posture and your chest up.
  • Shoulder presses: With your palms facing away from you, lift your arms keeping your chest up and your core braced.

To see the correct form for each of the exercises, check the video.
