Gear up for more Winter Workouts

The winter months give you a chance to hibernate and bulk up. So, in order to get the most from your winter, make sure to incorporate the exercises mentioned below.

Gear up for more Winter Workouts

Everybody struggles when winter hits. The nights get longer, and energy levels fall as the body produces less vitamin D. Some steps can be taken to boost your motivation and help you build muscle in winter but, as always, trying to keep gaining through the colder months takes some serious work, sweat, and dedication.

Weighted PullUps

Pull-ups, in general, are terrific for building mass, but if you’re looking to grow your muscles, you will want to add resistance. One of the best ways to do so is to strap on a dipping belt, add a plate and start pulling.

The major muscle group that Weighted Pull-ups work are:

  • Biceps
  • Forearms
  • Posterior Shoulder
  • Back

Weighted Shrugs

Weighted shrugs are actually one of the best ways to build a terrific set of traps, and they enhance your back’s overall appearance while building muscle at the same time. Performing heavy shrugs will help grow your traps and power up your physique.

The major muscle group that Weighted Shrugs work are:

  • Trapezius
  • Shoulders
  • Back

Leg Extension

Leg extensions are a key exercise in strengthening the patellar ligament and the quadricep attachment for the knee. This exercise focuses on strengthening the quad alone and, therefore, strengthens key attachments on the knee joints. Keep in mind to opt for a high-quality leg extension machine for your workout, as it will help with your performance and posture.

The major muscle group that Leg extension work are:

  • Vastus Lateralis
  • Quads
  • Vastus Medialis

Start with light weights followed by minimal reps and increase gradually over time. By following the workout over the course of a few months, you should start to see great results.
