Heavy Hittin' Bodybuilding Plan Week 2

Posted by VPX Sports on Oct 9, 2014 1:04:00 PM

Last week, for Week 1, I had you go “Heavy” with 5 circuits 5-10 reps but this week I want you to use “Medium” Weights, aim for 4 circuits of 10-15 reps! Your goal should be to be getting muscle pumping burn about 65-75% of the way through each set and barely be able to get a 15th rep because of muscle bursting pumps! Using medium weights will trick the muscles, since they are expecting heavy weights like last week, and you will crush this workout with some serious intensity!heavy hittin bodybuilding week 2
