Heavy Weights Unilateral Training!

heavy-hittin-bodybuilding_week-10Week 10 is going to be Heavy Weights for Unilateral Training (one side working at a time while using the other hand or leg for support). Your goal is 4 Sets of 5-10 reps (Heavy Weights). You should be getting a tough burn at 5 reps and barely be able to make it to 10 reps. If 5 reps is easy then add heavier weights. If 10 reps are not possible then lighten the weight a bit. This Unilateral Training Week will recruit a bunch of your Core muscles as well as demolish the muscles you plan to exercise each workout! Secondary and stabilizer muscles will all get worked along with the main muscles being hit! Do one arm then the other or one leg then the other within each set for each exercise (5-10 reps of one side then the other for 4 Sets). Whichever arm or leg is not working should be ready to support, balance, and spot the working side.
