4.25.13 SWOD



  • EMOM for 7 minutes (EMOM = Every Minute On the Minute)

Volume (Increase weights 5-10 lbs from last week)

Same workout as last week, just added an isolated oblique exercise to the ab circuit. Rest periods between supersets should be 60-90 seconds for max hypertrophy.


  • This image comes to us courtesy of one our SwoleFIT brothers in Japan, Andoryu0126. I’m sure we’ve all been minding our business, adding full pallets to our semi-truck of swole, and seen this foul play occur at the other end of the gym.
  • Oftentimes, it is tempting to walk over and give unsolicited advice. Instead I recommend maintaining your distance, recording a video on your smartphone, and using it as conversational fodder at the bars later.
