Squat till you drop set, and then squat some more. Got stubborn legs? Shortcut to Size will take them to a bigger place, provided you keep up the intensity. Remember to add weight based on your last recorded numbers. You can usually see some serious strength gains on squats, so don't be afraid to dig deep and lift heavy.

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!

Day 47: Legs/Abs
Perform the hip thrust while holding a medicine ball or dumbbell between your feet, or while wearing ankle weights.
