Swole Phase 3, Week 4 of Glory.

Swole Children of Brodin,

Congratulations– you’ve officially reached three months of the SwoleFIT lifestyle! Most of you, I’m sure, can barely remember what it felt like before you began. What it felt like not to have two little mountains sitting next to your ears. Trap-mountains with their own weather patterns, wildlife, and tourists. 

TRAPSSHOW

Week 4 (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 its full range of motion, using a weight that’s relatively “easy,” focusing very much on proper form, and feeling DAT PUMP while doing so.
