BackWeek 10

This workout uses the same moves as Week 2, but now you’ll use heavier weights while following the same sets, reps and rest schemes. At this point, you should be much stronger.

NOTES:

* Keep all your reps strict—while you should be stronger, the goal is not to sling around more weight; it’s to work these muscles just as strictly with the amount of weight you can now control for the number of sets and reps.

* Barbell shrugs targets the upper portion of your traps. Keep your arms straight and hold the contraction at the top for about a second. Then pause for 2 minutes between sets.

FERMENTED GLUTAMINE

Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body, and it can be synthesized from other amino acids. When your body has a greater need for glutamine, such as when you’re on an intense training program, it may break down muscle tissue for this purpose. Supplementing Fermented Glutamine helps reduce muscle breakdown and encourages protein synthesis.
