Workout: Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps Home Gym Workout

I wanted to show you one workout I do while working out from home. This PUSH (Chest, Shoulders, Triceps) workout is basically a workout that I did in the gym and I just converted it to my home gym environment. For most of these exercises, I usually do a warm-up set and then three working sets of 12 to 15 reps depending on the amount of weight I’m using.

After a nice dynamic warm up, I start with the Flat Barbell Bench Press.

Save Time and SuperSet!

To save some time, you can always superset your exercises. A superset is when you perform two exercises back to back, without a break in between the exercises. Rest after you perform both exercises. It’s ideal when working opposing muscle groups, or muscles that are “opposite” of each other. So for this superset, I am doing a band crossover and supersetting it with a band press down for the triceps.

  1. Facing bands, grasp one handle with an underhand grip and elbow by your side.
  2. Press arms down concentrating on your triceps muscles.
  3. Release.
  4. Repeat

I complete four sets of 75 lbs. (1 black band, 1 blue band, and 1 red band) for twelve repetitions.

  1. Grab each handle of the band and with a slight bend in your elbows, squeeze your chest muscles and push the handles in front of your chest until your palms face each other.
  2. Repeat

Equipment Used for the Pressdown and CrossOver

I never thought I’d fall in love with exercise bands, but these bands with the anchor are stackable, you can put more weight on or take weight off of it. I absolutely fell in love with them during lockdown in 2020 and now they are a permanent place in my home gym. Another thing I love about the bands is that they are so customizable. You can anchor the bands to the top of the door, sides of the door, or at the bottom.

Five bands come in most sets. The resistances are equal to a certain amount of weight. Different sets can come with different weight/resistance variations, so definitely note the resistance range before purchasing.

Common Stacking Resistance Configurations

  • Black (30 lbs.)
  • Blue (25 lbs.)
  • Red (20 lbs.)
  • Green (15 lbs.)

Next I’m going to do a superset of a reverse grip band pressdown into an overhead extension. Normally with the reverse grip I would do it with a rope or a curved mustache bar, but since I’m working out from home, I use the cable handles.
