For the last four weeks, you've laid a solid foundation of muscle and strength. Now, it's time to kick the intensity up a notch and push some heavy iron. The Pyramid Phase is all about maximizing your strength and building dense, powerful muscle. If you lift with everything you've got for the next four weeks, you'll come out significantly stronger than you've ever been.

During this workout, you'll add weight and drop reps on most exercises. Every time you see the reps drop in the workout below, you should add weight. On most movements, you'll lift a relatively light weight for high reps, and then add weight and drop reps from set to set. This technique, known as pyramid training, will help you boost your strength and size.

Make sure you record the weight you lift and the number of reps you hit on each exercise. Your goal is to beat these numbers next week, the week after, and the week after that. By progressively overloading your body from workout to workout, you'll build strength and get swole.
