Workout Notes: 

  • You'll have about 15 min to complete the arms portion of the workout today, then it's on to the conditioning. 
  • For those who won't read the "superset" article: A superset is where you go from one exercise to the next without resting. After you've completed both sets - you rest.
  • How much rest? Only as much as you need to complete the next set.
  • The purpose of a SS is to grossly fatigue a muscle. Resting until completely recovered negates the effect.
  • You may use a little monkey motion on those kick backs, but keep them stricter than not. 
  • No KBs because - our backs!
