HamstringsWeek 8

This may be the most challenging week of this program. Today we’re combining two of the best growth techniques — supersets and DTP. It’s no coincidence that I call these DTP supersets, and they’re amazingly effective. They’re also quite challenging. Here’s how they work 

You’ll perform a set of stiff-legged barbell deadlifts with a light weight for 20 reps, followed immediately by a set of lying leg curls with a light weight for another 20 reps, and then you’ll rest for 2 minutes. Perform this same DTP superset again before adding weight and decreasing reps.

Continue to pyramid up in weight as you decrease reps until you reach 10 reps in your DTP superset. Then repeat this set before increasing reps while decreasing weight. You’ll perform a total of 10 DTP supersets.

NOTES:

* Note that you’re going to perform a total of 40 reps for the first DTP superset. Today’s workout will only get more challenging as you perform 10 of these DTP supersets.

* You’re going to need your recovery supplements. I recommend getting in RE-KAGED® immediately after your workout. Also, get in Kasein®—go with a 2-scoop serving before bedtime.

* Use the rest-pause principle if needed to complete each DTP superset, and check out the video for tips on how to perform this unique strategy.

TIP: DTP supersets are going to feel unnatural to your body. Your brain is going to rebel against them. It’s important that you bring everything you’ve got to this workout, using your brain to overcome the limits your body is trying to impose on you.
