25-Rep Workout – Extra

In the March 2011 issue, we had you do five sets of five reps for your main lifts during the first week. The remaining weeks’ configurations are below — follow them for the squat, overhead press, incline bench press, and power clean:

Week 2: 6 sets of 4 reps.

Week 3: 5 sets of 8, 6, 6, 3, and 3 reps. On the power clean, do six sets of 6, 6, 5, 3, 3, and 3 reps.

Increase the total number of reps you perform for the dip and pullup to 60 in Week 3.

Week 4: 3 sets of 8 reps. On the power clean, do 4 sets of 6 reps. Use 20%-25% less weight on all your exercises this week than you used on your heaviest sets last week. Perform only 40 total reps on the dip and pullup.
