Okay. Now that that is out of the way, it’s time to WORK. You all know how much I love to share workouts with you. Creating workouts is definitely something that pumps me up…almost as much as completing a good workout. I can assure you this workout will leave you PUMPED. Your muscles won’t know what hit them!
Who here has heard of pre-fatigue sets? Well, it’s just as it sounds if you haven’t heard of this great training technique yet.
You complete pre-fatigue sets by completing an exercise to failure before moving directly into another exercise that works the same body part. This combination really challenges the strength endurance and can help push you past a workout plateau as you work your muscles to exhaustion…and then some more.
Sounds good, doesn’t it? If you love that pumped up feeling from a good strength workout, then this should sound good to you. Pre-fatigue sets deliver. I have not one, but TWO, workouts for you today.One upper body and one lower body. Each workout has pairs of exercises – do the first exercise to fatigue and then finish out with 8 to 12 reps of the second exercise in each pairing. Complete 2 to 4 sets in this fashion before moving on to the next pair of exercises. Each workout should last between 20 to 40 minutes depending on how many sets you complete.
Good luck lifting your arms or going up stairs after these.
Have you ever done pre-fatigue sets like these before? Which combo looks like your favorite?
