Description

Fewer reps means heavier weight. We're working on improving our strength today, so get ready to add some pounds to your workload. Because we're using the periodization method, it's important that you keep track of the weight you lift and the number of reps you complete. You can't expect to improve if you're just guessing. The lifting exercises are the same as last week's first session, but the reps are in the 6-8 range, so pick a weight that causes you to fail right around 8 reps. Remember that you can change the cardio acceleration exercises at any time. Pick from the list of exercises on the training overview page, or choose one of your personal favorites
