Heavy Hittin' Bodybuilding Plan Week 6

Posted by Team Xtreme on Nov 9, 2014 10:07:00 AM

Week 6 is going to be a Heavy Weights Blitz with a goal of 5 Sets each with 5-10 reps (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. These Muscle Blitzing Workouts will attack and jump all over your muscles demolishing them this week, so pay attention too and follow my advice for the Rest & Recovery Days! Very Important!heavy-hittin-bodybuilding_week-6
