Heavy Hittin' Bodybuilding Plan Week 3

Posted by VPX Sports on Oct 19, 2014 9:27:00 AM

Ok, it’s week 3 of this series and time to go back to Heavy Weights. The goal is 5 sets of 5-10 reps with heavy weights where you should be getting a tuff burn at 5 reps and barely be able to make it to 10 reps. If 10 reps is easy then add heavier weights. If 5 reps are not possible then lighten the weight a bit.Heavy Hittin' Bodybuilding Week 3
