In this video, Brian's former personal trainer, Tito Raymond, has been replaced by a good friend and former competitor of Bob Cicherillo, Rico McClinton. Rico is really increasing the intensity of Brian's workouts, and the results are amazing!

Weeks 11-12: Your Program

..... -> Training: .....

    Please be sure to warm up for 5-10 minutes cardiovascular prior to weight training. Also, warm up for several sets prior to your working sets.

    Note: Sets stay at two during these remaining two weeks. Both sets on each exercise are to be conducted as a drop set. Once failure is reached on the initial eight reps, immediately follow this with a lighter weight that will allow another equal amount of reps. This is to be done twice on each exercise.

What Is A Drop Set?
A drop set is a set where you do as many reps as you can with a certain weight, then immediately lower the weight and do more reps. There should be as little rest as possible between sets.
