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:
Third week of this bodybuilding micro-cycle– you should be feeling both hot and big at this point. As Aristotle once said, “If you got it, flaunt it homie.” Ipso facto (that’s Latin), don’t let those muscle pythons sit in their cage wasting away. Head directly to the beach after this workout andproceed to BARK&FLEX at as many randos as possible.

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.
