Swole Phase 3, Week 3 of Glory.

Faithful Bros of the Galactic Republic,

Luke Thighwalker and his sidekick Pump Solo have embarked on a mission to destroy the evil Emperor Palpatine who has imposed a new Galaxy wide ban on Spacelifting. Brobi Wan Kenobi has issued a call to all Spacelifting bros to join their fight.

Will you let the evil Sedentary forces of the universe prevail or will you join the Swole side and use your muscle FORCE for good??


Week 3 (of 4 week cycle):

Warmup for all daysOfficial 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.


Monday (Legs/Shoulders/Traps/Abs):

   Strength (3-5 minutes rest b/t sets):

  • Back Squat: 3×3 (add 10 lbs from last week)- Remember to keep that form 100% perfect as the weight increases
  • Deadlift: 3×3 (add 10 lbs from last week)- Ditto


  • 5 rounds- 5 Deadlift, 5 Hang Power Clean, 5 Front Squat, 5 Push Press
  • Perform these rounds as one unbroken movement complex. Choose a LIGHT weight that will allow you to do this (i.e. 95-135#); focus is on proper form and going at moderate to fast pace.
  • Rest ~60 seconds between rounds
