Week 9 - Workout #1

Congratulations on making it to the last leg of the program and last change in program design. This is the month designed to set you up for long-term success. Unlike last month’s high paced design, this month is designed to slow things down and really focus on developing your total body strength. The very first exercise consisting of 1 set of 25 reps is where it all starts. Do your best to choose a weight that just barely allows you to complete all the reps without reaching technical failure. Notice the burner at the end. The burner is your chance to challenge yourself, giving it everything you have left at the end of each day.

Week 10 - Workout #1

Take a look back at the weight you used for last week’s first exercise. If you feel you could have chosen a better weight, make sure to do that this time around. The first exercise is meant to shock your body and nervous system, but that only works if you reach that near failure state. Make sure you’re still looking at the rest times too. Notice that they are decreasing from week to week.
