Welcome back to the first workout of 2020. We’ll start the new year with a bang. Strength Training!
The goal is still muscle building. Strength training for muscle building? Yup. that’s correct. Strength training works wonders for muscle hypertrophy – when done correctly.
We will train week 1 of January 2020 with strength exercises, week 2 with hypertrophy followed by mixed workout of strength/hypertrophy in week 3. And lastly, active recovery in week 4. So, we have effectively incorporated strength training in our muscle-building routine (muscle hypertrophy).
Word of caution, you don’t wanna go overboard with the number of exercises you do in strength training. You dont need to do 4+ different exercises to try to hit all angles. We will do that next week in our hypertrophy week. With strength training, the goal is to be able to lift heavy rather than hitting all angles.
Here’s the chest and abs workout for today:
1# Incline Bench Press 5 Sets Of 2-4 Reps
