Hard Work Workout


I don't know about you guys but sometimes I get the urge to just bust my ass real hard in the gym. Not that I don't every workout, but the following routine I use when I really want to up my work output:

1) Back Squat - 6 work sets of 6-12 reps
2) Push Press Superseted
with Weighted Chins - 6 work sets of 6-12 reps
3) Deadlifts Superseted
with weighted Dips - 6 work sets of 6-12 reps

All reps are taken to positive failure or 1 rep from it. Negatives are slowish and controlled. Rest is as little as possible until gasping has stopped, up to 3 minutes for dead's and squats, 1-2 minutes for push-press and chins.

It may not look like much but I'd love if some of you guys could try this and tell me how you make out. If you aren't totally wiped (but strangely satisfied) at the end then maybe I need some more GPP work.


yea i had a good time today...

i used the 5-4-3-2-1 for an upper body chest/back workout
Used the method for Bench Press as well as weighted chins.


For a second I thought this thread was gonna be about tugging the 5 inch anaconda.
