Week 1

  • This is a "medium" week to help your body adapt to a new program without excessive soreness.
  • Rest 60 seconds between each set unless it is a designated superset exercise. If so, rest only as long as it takes to get to the next exercise. You may take up to 2 minutes between the harder work sets of the more involved multi-joint exercises such as the Squat, Bench etc.
  • If an exercise is preceeded by the letters SS(A) or SS(B) this means to superset the exercise with another exercise(s) that has the same designation. Click on these letter designations to find out more about supersetting!
  • This week perform each repetition for all exercises with a 2-0-2-0 tempo. This is 2 seconds down, no pause, 2 seconds up, no pause, and repeat.
  • You can change the exercises or weight by clicking on the exercise you wish to change
  • .
  • During your workout, record how each exercise felt then, update your program accordingly so that we can track your progress and fine tune your program. Lower the weight if you can't complete all of the sets and reps of a particular exercise. You do not want to do any negative repetitions this week. However, you should increase the weight of an exercise if you can complete all of the sets and reps with relative ease!
  • Your training.strengthengine.com workout uses the concept of Periodization. This means that as you progress, there will be built-in changes in exercises, sets, reps, or weight to provide your body with the perfect amount of stimulation to help you achieve the fitness level you want!
