Want Big Arms? of course you do: Big Gunz Workout 1

 


Last week I felt like doing some arms to increase strength on my push/pull.   


What I did was combine 3 exercises back to back and work on both agonist and antagonists muscles with minimal rest.


The result was: Major cramps on my biceps and a hard time brushing my teeth the next morning.

Giant Set Workout for Quads Featuring IFBB Pro Milos Sarcev




The picture says it all.  Milos Sarcev killed me this week!




1 Days before leaving the DR, Milos Sarcev saw me doing torso and said the words "Tomorrow at 10am Quads"



I prepared mentally, I had steak and potatoes for dinner the night before as well as for breakfast.  I grabbed a Spike Shotgun (yeah the big ones) for pre-workout and used half a serving extra of my PreWorkout aminos.  The result was obvious "when you do legs with Milos you end up dead in the ground"

Torso Workout 2 and 1 Complex


Every time I visit the Dominican Republic means that I have to bring my A game.  Even people like Charles Poliquin have reviewed this small island for having some of  the best coaches in the world doing their work there.  I couldn't agree more.




During my visit, I went trained a few times at "Workout" a Strength Coaching facility that is a dream gym for any kind of athlete or gym rat.  The first workout I'll share with you is a Torso routine using a 2 plus 1 complex.




This principle pairs up agonist and antagonist groups making emphasis in the area that needs more work.  In this case my back.  The Idea is to super set 2 exercises of one muscle, followed by 1 exercise of the antagonist.
