Alternate to Stimulate

4 workouts per week / 45-min. workouts

You may think you know what rest-pause training is all about, but Jim's take is uniquely his own. Every movement you'll perform is unilateral, meaning one arm or leg at a time. This allows you to take advantage of your muscles' ability to quickly recover. You'll accomplish more reps, with higher weight, and earn greater gains!

More than a workout plan. With this plan you also receive:
