- Don't confuse this workout with our other "run the rack" workout. This one is done in rounds instead of back to back sets of the same muscle groups.
- After you storm as far up the rack as possible with fr. squats, move straight to the next exercise (biceps curls) without taking a rest. Do the same from biceps to OH triceps. Then go run.
- Do it four times.
- Running the Rack: How to
- If you can't get 10 good reps - you are done.
- If you are taking a long time between sets - you are done.
- If your form is breaking down to the point where your exercise is not effective, nor efficient - you are done.
- If your form breaks down the point where you may become injured - you are done.
- It is extremely important to keep transition times between your sets of 10 to a bare minimum today. Doing so will help you attain and maintain "maximum pump," which is particularly important for gaining max benefits from this specific workout.
- This workout closely mimics a bodybuilding workout. The great Larry Scott (the world's first Mr Olympia - he won it 2x) taught me, "The key to bodybuilding is attaining a good pump." I had the distinct privilege of working (and working out) with this living legend during a pivotal time in my career. He exemplified the concept of "Optimal Health." Here is a pic of him in his mid 60s. He was a very gracious and generous man. He would have been thrilled to know I am passing along some of his tips on to you.
- We are simply not limited to any ONE concept, or methodology. We find usefulness in many proven concepts and methods. We've made it a point to become educated and experienced in many other ways, so that we may bring a more efficient and effective program to you.
I've ALWAYS thought "reward & punishment" methods were crap when it comes to one's health. Health is a pretty complicated thing. The solution to your problem is more of a moving target than the "Fiteratti" will admit. In health and fitness, there is certainly a mismatch between what science knows and what health/fitness does!
