Workout Notes

 Weight – For a given exercise, use the same weight for each set. This will help streamline your lifting, reducing downtime between sets by not changing plates.

Progression – When you can comfortably perform each of the sets using a given weight, add weight to the bar the next time you perform that exercise. For example, let’s sat you are using 200 pounds on squats for 2 sets of 20 reps. When you can complete both sets without feeling like you were close to failure on the last several reps, add weight.

Rest – Each workout has 20 sets per day. To get this workout done in about an hour’s time you will need to limit rest between sets to 90-120 seconds for most exercises. Take a little longer between sets of squats and deadlifts.

Here are some rest recommendations:
Squats – 3 minutes between sets
Deadlifts – 3 minutes between sets
Pressing – 90 seconds between sets
Rows – 90 seconds between sets
Leg Press – 60 seconds between sets
Triceps – 30 seconds between sets
