Description

 

This 5 day workout uses a variety of protocols and HIIT to sustain as much muscle as possible while shredding fat. Different exercises in this workout will use different set protocols:


  • Superset Protocol: Perform two exercises back to back without rest (2 sets, rest, repeat)
  • Forced Rep Protocol: Once can no longer complete a rep, have your spotter lift the weight for you and complete the negative yourself until you can no longer do so.
  • Drop Sets Protocol: Perform an exercise until failure, then reduce or "drop" the weight so you can complete more reps until reaching failure once more.
  • Hold Set Protocol: At the end of the set, hold full contraction until you can no longer do so.
  • Rest-Pause Set Protocol: Perform an exercise until failure, then rest for 10-15 seconds before performing the exercise again until failure once more.


After each workout, 20 minutes of high intensity interval training is to be performed. To accomplish this, complete 8 rounds of the following:


  • 30 seconds all-out effort followed by 90 seconds low-moderate effort.


Any form of cardio is appropriate for HIIT. Choose your favorite! Overall, this workout is sure to burn extra calories and burn fat while maintaining muscle for advanced lifters.
