I decided to try “The Bear” today since it’s an off day from Meltdown II. Let me tell you this is one hardcore movement. I was panting harder than the taco bell dog! I did 6 sets all for 6 reps at 80% of RM. I also rested 2 minutes and 40 seconds in between sets. I could barely get any liquid in cuz I was breathing so hard heh. Anyways this is definitely a killer. I could see a lot of room for injury if people don’t keep strict form. While i’m talking about hardcore workouts i’ll tell you about some modifications I made to Meltdown II. It wasn’t anything really serious. I kept everything the same except I minimized the rest period significantly. The 15 second rest in between reps still remains since it’s there for a reason.
1st week: Rest between sets: 160 sec rest.
2nd Week: Rest between sets: 140 seconds
3rd week: Rest between sets: 120 seconds.
4th week: Rest between sets: 160 seconds.
The original called for:
1st week: 240seconds
2nd week: 230seconds
3rd week: 220 seconds
4th week: 240seconds.
I’m using Mag 10 so i figured i’d play around with it and the results are outstanding! I’ve done meltdown II before and never got results like this. Losing a significant amount of bf% as well as gaining LBM.
