Workout Notes:

  1. OYC - On YOUR Count. 

  2. Go slow.

  3. Control the weight.

  4. Use strict shaping bias form. 

  5. Be precise with your rests. 30 sec only please. 

  6. The point of this workout is to continually build lactic acid in the muscle cells over multiple sets. If you rest too long, lactic acid clears and you don't get as good of a pump. Those who are best at shaping muscles on the human body (professional body builders) will tell you the "pump" is critical to muscle shaping success. No, we are not body building (compare our measly 3 sets of relatively high reps to their 30 sets of 6-12 reps.). While we don't embrace the body builder's methods, we surely can use their techniques to achieve our own.

  7. If you did yesterday's workout it may be overdoing it for you to do the "PUSH" portion of this workout today. Know your body. Vets should be fine (depending upon the individual), but if you are in doubt skip it and replace for the following: 

    3 rounds of: 
    25 situps
    25 superman back ext
    25 tic tocks R 25/35
    25 tic tocks L 25/35
