Swole Phase 3, Week 1 of Glory.

Swole Bro Minions,

We’re two months into the new path of swole, and most likely, you’re barely recognizable now compared to the puny, pathetic form with which you entered this journey. Friends and family have started voicing their concerns about your “nattiness.” I mean, come on bro. There’s no way you can be this jacked and natural.

False. There is a way. The SwoleFIT way.

COLEMAN

See this video for context.

Week 1 (of 4 week cycle):

Warmup for all days: Official SwoleFIT Warmup

Emphasis on strength days should be on pushing heavy weight with ample rest. Please use proper form, bros (see Youtube for a wealth of video resources on this subject).

Emphasis on hypertrophy days should be on moving the muscle through it’s full range of motion, using a weight that’s relatively “easy,” focusing very much on proper form, and feeling DAT PUMP while doing so.
