Third week of the bodybuilding micro-cycle as part of the SwoleFIT strength template. Decrease the reps, increase the weight, increase the INTENSITY. Your body is a temple of muscles. Go ahead and make it a bigger temple so more people can worship inside.
Motivation- Dom gives the breakdown of one of life’s most crucial skills: skipping leg day.
Today’s workout marks the start of a new bodybuilding micro-cycle as part of the SwoleFIT strength template. Tempo should be deliberately slowed to increase the amount of time your muscles are under stress. We’ll be using a 3-0-3 tempo: 3 seconds down, 3 seconds up. This slower pace will increase the amount of time your muscles are under tension and should really break down those muscle fibers paving the road for sweet, succulent muscle growth.
Motivation- Check out this video of Drew Brees hitting it hard in the offseason:
For the third week of this bodybuilding micro-cycle, decrease the reps and add on that weight. Push yourself to the limit and learn to tolerate the burning sensation as your muscles are broken down. In the words of a famous movie quote, “If you build it, they will come.” “It” of course refers to muscles and “they” refers to ladies. Science people.
Watch this weird dude consume over 8000 calories in one day as he documents his two month “epic bulk” progression.
This workout is very similar to the “Prometheus” GODSWOD done on 6.23.13; this time Kettlebell swings are subbed for the SDHP’s and DU’s. Push yourself to the max limitations here- never give up, never surrender.
Here’s a pretty awesome training montage of two guys, Dan Green and Eric Spoto, who recently broke powerlifting world records for the raw total and raw bench categories respectively.
Second week of this specific workout for the bodybuilding “micro-cycle.” Add some weight, keep that form perfect, and watch as your muscles, similar to a Chia Pet, blossom into the house decorations they were meant to be.
The same young man who challenged the world with the monumental question, “Do you even lift?” returns for a second round of interrogation. This time, he targets the female population, inquiring, “Do you even squat?”
Use the same weight (as appropriate to your strength level) for the deadlifts and power cleans. Deadlifts should be fast and relatively easy, but maintain good form and engage your muscles as if you were pulling heavy.
This video montage showing some of history’s greatest recorded displays of strength should get your mind in the right place for Monday’s swole sesh:
