In the final week of the Duel Trainer, you're going to lift weights that are beyond your normal abilities. But don't worry, we're not expecting you to bear those extra plates alone. As always, your partner will help you move the load—every rep and every set.

For each set, you're going to use 10-20 percent more weight than your one-rep max, so your partner is going to have her hands on the bar the whole time, assisting you with every rep. We're focusing on strength this week, so you won't be doing more reps than you can handle.

Because the load is so heavy, you'll have to eccentrically resist the load for three seconds before the partner aids you on the concentric contraction. Remember to rest for three minutes between sets and five minutes between exercises.
