How to Do It:
Pick a rep range between 50 and 100 and do each exercise that many times without stopping. Make sure to choose a weight that feels easy and de. nitely have a spotter handy. For reference, Jericho might use only 95 pounds for the bench press. You should probably use less.

30-45 minutes

The Exercises

  • Leg Press
  • Leg Extension
  • Leg Curl
  • Bench Press
  • Lat Pulldown
  • Seated Row
  • Shoulder Press
  • Biceps Curl
  • Triceps Extension


Inside Tips:
“It doesn’t matter if you do . at bench or incline, dumbbell curls or straight-bar curls,” says Chris Gonzalez, Jericho’s trainer. “It just has to be that movement.” So choose a different handle for your pulldowns and rows but don’t replace them with a different exercise. “I defy anyone not to feel sore everywhere the next day,” Jericho adds. “If you did it properly and with the right motion, it will kill you.”
