Tough Mudder Sexy Back Program
What we mean is a sexy back, as in the back of your body! Not getting your sexy back, like reinvigorating your private life! Just to get things clear!!
Pyramid training is a method of strength training in which you start with a lighter weight for a higher number of repetitions and, for each set, you increase the weight and decrease the repetitions. You can also do the reverse and start heavy, dropping the weight and increasing the reps for each set.
In this version, you increase the weight and decrease the reps for each set. Example:
Set 1 – 15 kg x 12 reps
Set 2 – 20 kg x 10 reps
Set 3 – 25 kg x 8 reps
For each set, choose a heavy enough that you can ONLY complete the desired number of reps.
In this method, decrease the weight and increase the reps with each set. Example:
Set 1 – 25 kg x 8 reps
Set 2 – 20 kg s x 10 reps
Set 3 – 15 kg x 12 reps
