VIDEO: Countdown Sets Workout, Day III

All week long, we’ve been showing you a muscle-building strategy that forces your muscles to grow by pausing an exercise at a point in its range of motion. It’s called the Countdown Sets Workout, and you can find the complete program here. Our training director Sean Hyson has been demonstrating all the exercises from Day I and Day II. Watch Day III here to see proper form of the moves.

Day 3 of the Countdown Sets Workout:

DIRECTIONS
Perform each workout (Days I, II, and III) once per week, resting a day between each session. Perform exercises marked with a letter (“A,” “B,” and sometimes “C,” or even “D”) in sequence, resting as needed in between. So you’ll do a set of A, rest, then B, rest again, and repeat until all the prescribed sets are done. Perform the remaining exercises as straight sets.
