2 brutal workouts

Updated: Jan 14


The text above says it all. This week I received more than a few disgruntled messages from R5ers who were experiencing the aftermath of 2 brutal high volume, high intense sessions.

The increased number of sets and reps within this workout are great for building lean muscle mass. When these sets are performed with minimal rest periods, it not only increases the intensity (which burns more fat!), but allows blood to stay within the muscle creating more of a hypertrophic response (builds more muscle).

We split it into two separate torture sessions. Upper body and lower body. The structure was supersets for individual mucsle groups with just 30 secs rest in-between each set. So make sure you have your equipment set up and you move onto the next superset sharpish. If you take the correct rest periods, each workout should take about an hour.

So strap in, get ready for hell and give it a go if you dare!
