Description

A variation on a Push Pull Leg Barbell full body workout. Ideal for building strength and muscle without having to go to the gym six days a week. Lift heavy, be heavy. This is similar to most 5x5 barbell programs, only with a reverse pyramid rep range. Starting with a low weight and high reps, increase the weight on the barbell with every set, but decrease the amount of reps. So for five sets, perform 8, 6, 5, 5, 5 in that order. The first two sets should get you warmed up, and the last three sets are your working weight. Good for getting warmed up for heavy sets as well as getting in enough volume to cause muscle growth. If you perform the last three sets of the target weight with good form then add a pound or two on the barbell for the next workout. Take it slow, warm up properly and stretch afterword and progress can be made to your strength and muscle. Always be safe and use a spotter when you can for the squat and press when it gets heavy.
