DAY 33:ARMS AND ABS - KAGED MUSCLE

DAY 33 ARMS AND ABS

Today, we’re beginning with a circuit of 4 exercises that all target biceps. You’ll perform one set of each move without rest before taking a 2-3 minute break before the next circuit. And you’ll perform a total of four circuits comprised of cable curls, alternating dumbbell curls, plate hammer curls, and barbell curls. You’ll perform 15 reps for each move for a total of 60 reps in each circuit.

Then you’ll perform a similar circuit of 5 exercises that target triceps. The moves for this one include triceps cable extensions, overhead rope extensions, incline barbell extensions, bench dips, and close-grip pushups. Again, you’ll perform 15 reps for each move before resting. That means you’ll perform 75 reps before taking a 2-3 minute rest between circuits.

Take a look at today’s video to see how I’ve set up the equipment so these circuits can be performed without a break. It’s important to do this when you’re training in a gym. And you need to be adaptable, realizing that you can make changes if necessary when you’re training in a busy facility. As with all aspects of your 12-Week Lean Muscle Program, I recommend that you plan ahead.

Today’s workout also includes intense abdominal training. You’ll start with a superset of banded leg raises for 15 reps, followed by pike sit-ups with a bar. And you’ll perform 3 of these supersets. Again—that means no rest from one to the other, but then you can rest for 1 minute between each of these supersets.

And then you’ll burn out with 1 set each of crossover V-ups for 30 reps (15 per side) followed by bicycle crunches for 30 reps (15 per side).

GETHIN’S GO-TO:

One thing I hope you’ve gleaned from this program is that there are no days off. Today is another day where Kai was traveling for work, but he still managed his schedule so that he was able to get in his 2 cardio sessions, and his arms and abs workout. You often have to plan ahead to make sure you have access to a gym and cardio equipment when you travel. Don’t count on being able to figure this out on the fly—use your Google machine to plan your workouts before vacations and work trips.
