The focus of this workout is about bringing some good depth and shape to the upper chest, all while hitting a little bit of side delts. So the end result after a few weeks/months on this plan is a greatly improved and strong chest, and improved roundness in the shoulders. Remember to keep the challenge on in the workout. Really push yourself and ask if you are giving your ALL for each set and each rep.Continue Reading
This program is intended to be a nice finisher for a cardio program, or “cardio only” day. It’s more of a pump workout simply focused on keeping the HR up and the caloric burn on! I do this workout after performing my cardio when the body is already warm.
THE FOCUS IN NOT ON HOW HEAVY YOU CAN LIFT!
In fact, this workout is more about moving light to moderate weight through space AS FAST AS YOU CAN!
So we are working in the modality of Power Endurance. By definition, power endurance is about producing as much force as you can, in as little time as possible – and over a long period of time. With this kind of work we can improve neuromuscular efficiency – which is basically the body’s ability to have all of your muscles work in tandem and to do so efficiently in any direction you move.
The rate of force production – or basically how powerful we are, which will have huge effect on our strength workout as well. So this workout serves more than just the purpose of fat loss! Train intelligently and raise the bar.Continue Reading

This workout marks the advent of a new series I’m starting on the blog called “Roxie’s REAL Workout”. I get asked a lot, what can I do for this (__insert body part here__), or Roxie, what do YOU do when you get to the gym… Well the mystery is over because I’ll share with you guys, right here on the RoxStar Fitness Inner Circle EXACTLY what I do, and how I do it in the gym.
Now keep in mind these are MY workouts. Your body and my body are two different beasts. So if you need to change something, or switch something out, be smart and do so!
The following program is my “freakin legs and freakin abs” workout that I hit this week. I’ve titled it appropriately and you’ll see why… It’s a KILLER AWESOME program. In fact, I’m sitting here right now (48 hours later) with my glutes on FIRE. So it does a nice job in hitting the body in all the right places…
I suggest for the amount of weight you use to be HEAVY. Heavy is a relative term, so gauge it by the fact that you should NOT be able to do any more reps than I’ve given below on your plan. If you can – YOU DIDN’T LIFT HEAVY ENOUGH! Raise the bar, challenge yourself so you can progress, and get to the next level.Continue Reading
It’s so crazy how a little number can have a huge impact on your self worth, right? If I can name the ONE thing that tends to throw off clients, it’s their obsession with the scale. For so long, we’ve ALL been taught to “stay at that number”… But what if that number changes? What […]Continue Reading
