Shortcut To Size: Phase 1, Week 4, Day 26

Lay the foundation: Squat, press, and deadlift your way to bigger, stronger legs. Complete the package with incredible abs.

It's time to hit your legs, and we're going heavier than ever: 3-5 reps per set, with 5-10 more pounds than your last leg session. Warm up thoroughly and be careful when you're deep in the squat pocket -- brace your abs, engage your core, and push up with everything you've got on every set.

If you love lifting heavy, this is your time to shine. Next week brings us back to the 12-15 rep range, so heave the heavy iron while you can.

Track your progress, tune into your music, dominate your drop sets, and lay waste to your legs. You get two days of rest after this, so you better make the workout worthwhile. If it keeps you on the couch all night, you did it right.

Terms You'll Need To Know

Drop Set: During weeks three and four of all phases, you will do a drop set as the last set of each exercise. To do this, take the last set to muscle failure, then immediately reduce the weight by 25-30%, and continue the set until failure again.

Warm-up Sets: Perform 1-2 warm-up sets of 12-15 reps on the first exercise for all body parts, except abs and calves. Warm-up sets lubricate the joints, send blood to the working muscle, and prepare your body for a heavier load. After your warm-up sets, dive directly into the working sets below!
