Get Big Worksheet

My worksheet for the next couple weeks is 7 days, lifting heavy! I am not training with FP for a while, and not sure when I will see SC, looks like he won't be able to train me for a while, now it looks like I will be on my own, so I wrote my own worksheet.

I have learned that you need to lift heavy if you want growth, it needs to be difficult and the last rep should not be as easy as the first, or it's way too light.

I wear a night guard on my teeth at the advise of my Dentist because I clench my teeth when I lift heavy and it keeps me focused now, I can tell if the weights aren't heavy enough if I am not chomping down on that guard.

I am hitting legs heavy two days a week, shoulders and back twice a week, but one of those days is focused more on back than shoulders.

One day on glutes

One day bi's and tri's

One day on some interval training, maybe kettlebell swings or fartlekking. What does fartlek mean?

fart·lek (färt'lěk)
An athletic training technique, used especially in running, in which periods of intense effort alternate with periods of less strenuous effort in a continuous workout.

A workout using this technique.

[Swedish, speed play : fart , running, speed (from fara , to go, move , from Old Norse; see per- 2 in Indo-European roots) + lek , play (from leka , to play , from Old Norse leika ).]
