Shortcut To Size: Phase 2, Week 5, Day 33

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

Your legs are neither strong enough nor big enough. Your prescription? Squats. Lots of squats. Between barbell and front squats, you'll hit 7 total sets of squat work in this session. If you can walk properly after the workout, you did it wrong. Get sore today; get stronger tomorrow.

Terms You'll Need To Know

Rest-Pause: During weeks one and two of each phase of the program, you will do a rest-pause set as the last set of each exercise. To do this, reach muscle failure on the last set, then rack the weight and rest 15 seconds. Then continue the set until you reach muscle 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!

Day 33: Legs/Abs
Shoot for at least 20-30 reps, but if you can do more, continue until reaching failure. If you cannot complete 20 reps, do as many as you can trying to get as close to 20 reps as possible.
