Summer Shredding Workout

I’ll do more updates on this plan, but I signed up for the Alphalete Summer Shredding challenge. Mainly as a way to get myself focused and challenge myself in as many life areas as I can. It ends right at the start of my 30th birthday, so the timing is perfect. Anyway, onto the workout!

Summer Shredding Workout

Every week: fit in 3 or 4 days of cardio. (30 mins)
Week 1: All exercises 12-15 reps
Week 2: All exercises 8-10 reps
Week 3: All exercises 6-8 reps
Week 4: All exercises 2-4 reps
Cycle through all the rep ranges as needed

All exercises, 3 sets. Unless it’s one you want to build up more. (For me, that means legs #chickenlegs)

Rest-pause for all sets: On last set, go to failure, wait 15 seconds, then go to failure again.
