Today’s workout takes advantage of a single set to failure. Sets to failure work by focussing on metabolic stress and muscle fibre recruitment, two key requirements for muscle growth.

Squat variation 20X1
3 sets of 6 reps to warm up to a tough set for 6 reps. Then…
6, 6, 6+ reps, 90-seconds rest between sets
*In this workout, you’ll perform 3 heavy sets of 6 reps. After each set, if you feel like you could have performed more than 2 additional reps, you’ll add weight. In the third and final set, you’ll perform as many reps as possible.

5 sets:
10 strict pull-ups
60-seconds rest between sets

4 sets:
12 reps per arm, 3-point dumbbell row, no rest
20 kettlebell swings, 60-seconds rest

3 sets:
Max reps, prone shoulder external rotation with plates, no rest
30-60 seconds reverse hollow hold with alternating single-leg lift, 60-seconds rest
