Medium Weights - Triple Giant Sets!

Week 11 is going to be Medium Weights for Triple Giant Sets training! Your goal is 3 Sets of 10-15 reps each exercise consecutively. You should be getting a tough burn at 10 reps and barely be able to make it to 15 reps. If 10 reps is easy then add heavier weights. If 15 reps are not at all possible then lighten the weight a bit. Goal this week is to demolish each body-part with 3 different consecutive exercises (Triple) for 3 sets of 10-15 reps (Medium Weights) multiple times!

Tips to Introduce First Timers to OCR

Posted by VPX Sports on Jun 29, 2014 10:03:00 AM

The Northeast SUCK Review (Spoiler Alert)

Posted by VPX Sports on Jun 15, 2014 10:15:00 AM
