Same swole song, different verse. Hit this bodybuilding workout hard on the second week of the ‘micro-cycle’, amp the weights up by 5-10 lbs each. Maintain your form, feel that deluge of blood in your muscleveins (one word, it’s a real word).
Make some time to watch “Pumping Iron”– an hour and a half documentary chronicling bodybuilding in the glory days of the 1970’s.Arnold is the star of the show, providing entertainment, inspiration, and hilarity.
Another four weeks, another NEW VOLUME WORKOUT! Use this week to take the weights back down a notch; focus on form and do not go to failure. I’m programming such that every four weeks starts a new “micro-cycle” with these bodybuilding volume workouts.
Dom shows how to properly carry oneself within the sacred realm of the locker room:
This is the last week of this particular combination of movements. Push it to the limit and max out that pump potential in your guns. Start priming for the peak of summer; this is when the hard work really starts to pay off. Comments like, “Damn dude, have you been working out,” “Bro, you are freaking huge,” and“Are you doing protein or something now, man?” make all the hard work worthwhile. (Note that 80-90% of comments about your increased musculature will originate from other males)
The legend, Mr. Burgundy, shows us how to impress women in an office environment. Take notes.
Push yourself through this conditioning workout; it may sound easy but trust me it’s pretty challenging. This Friday’s workout will push you to the limit, get you in gear to take on the weekend. Use bands/assistance on the pullups as needed to maintain form and prevent flailing.
If you need a spot for your workout, look no further for advice than good ol Dom.
Sub jumping jacks for DU if you don’t gots a jumpy rope. Seriously though, just buy a jump rope.
Post times of conditioning workout to comments.
This is pretty much the ideal Friday workout. First you throw up a ton of weight on the bench press, then you immediately get a get a case of pump fever from the conditioning workout. Head to the Baby Gap afterwards, get yourself a sick smedium shirt, then hit the club.
I’ve got to go with my main man, Dom Mazetti, coming through in the clutch once again. Dom explains the relationship between lifting and drinking, eloquently intermingling #broscience, hilarity, and truth.
‘Pelvic thrust?’ you ask. It’s exactly what you think it is. Basically, you should forcefully hump the air for 20 EXPLOSIVE reps. This works on hip mobility as well as the NGAF muscle (not giving a F*CK).
*just kidding, do 10 box jumps
If you really are too embarrassed to do these reps, sub 1 rep of bench loading. This is where you:
Stack up a bench with 4-7 plates on each side
Walk around the gym breathing heavily and muttering to yourself
Approach the bench, position yourself under the bar, and act like you are about to lift off
Suddenly stand up, walk away, and shake your head in disgust as you display the universally recognizable “psych out” grimace
Yeah, this workout is going to be sick. Don’t even attempt to put on a shirt for at least an hour after your workout; your pecs will most likely shred right through it.
If you don’t have a jump rope, sub a 150 m run. If you can’t run, do 30 jumping jacks. If you’re too embarrassed to do jumping jacks, then high five yourself 20 times consecutively while skipping around the gym.
