Your programming changes as you begin the second four-week phase of the Blueprint to Cut. The biggest addition to the chest and back day is the deadlift!
In Phase 1, we used a series of rows and pull-ups, but the deadlift gives you the opportunity to pull some heavy weight from the ground, just like Arnold. It sounds simple to pull a bar to hip height, but foot placement, grip, and posture are all very important to the success of this classic lift.
Today's workout also includes a number of supersets. Be sure to set up for both exercises before you begin. It's easy to over-rest, so be diligent and keep moving.
You'll also notice that phase two also comes with some extra abdominal work. Yes your core will be tired and sore, but complete every workout. At the end of four weeks, you'll notice a big difference in how your abs look!
Don't forget to do your cardio! You only have four more weeks of Arnold Schwarzenegger's Blueprint trainer, so make sure you're doing everything you can to lose that extra fat. If you found a good cardio schedule in Phase 1, stick with it for Phase 2, because you're still running 1-2 miles 3-5 times per week.
