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!

Wts the benefit of a "one arm shrug" over the 2-arm version?
it would just take longer.

I wouldn't recomend it. Allowing your muscles time to heal and recover is just as important as the actual training. You may not feel super sore from the workout, but that does not mean your body is ready to train that muscle group again.

Me too. I�m thinking on keep doing things similar to Shortcut to Size. Meaning that I will go back to 15 reps next month adding somer exercises like chin ups on back day for example.
Kris Gethin�s programs seems interesting too.
What did you do?
