This is week 4 and it’s going to be a Lite Weight Shocker with the goal being 4 Circuits of 15-20 reps where you should be getting a tuff burn at 15 reps and barely be able to make it to 20 reps. If 15 reps is easy then add heavier weights. If 15 reps is not possible then lighten the weight a bit. Be ready to get your HEART and Muscles Pumpin'! You should attain a high heart rate and heavy but safe breathing during the entire workout!
