Day 18Hamstrings, Lower Back & Upper Abs

We’re already near the end of week 3. Before you know it you’ll be halfway through this transformation. This should awaken your mind to the fact that time passes so quickly, which is why you need to remain in control of your daily actions. Every workout has to surpass the last one; leave nothing to chance here. Missing your supplements for a day, or even one meal can knock you back.

We’ve got another lower back, hamstrings and upper abs workout ahead of us today. Usually we hit lower back first, however, the pump which you get from this means that it can negate from your hamstring workout. For this reason we’re starting with hamstrings first today.

How are you finding the increase in cardio this week? Let me know by tagging me on your socials using #HardcoreTrainer2.
