Lift your LIFE workout cycles use minimal rest, because seriously…
Why waste half your workout taking a break between sets of the same exercise? Don’t do it! Lift your LIFE workouts maximize your time by organizing exercises into what are called “supersets” that way you spend the least amount of time waiting around!
Lift your LIFE workouts are provided in 7 pages.
The first page is your overview of the cycle, and the last six pages are instructions, tips and modifications for each exercise.
The top part of page one will show you the six exercises you are performing in that workout.
The exercises will be color coded based off what type of movement they are (purple for lower body, teal for upper body and grey for core or total body). Each exercise will also be assigned a letter, as shown below.
The bottom of page one will show you how those colors and letters are ordered for each week of the cycle.
Some weeks you will superset an upper and lower body exercise together, some weeks you will superset 2 lower body exercises together, etc... It all depends on the week, but I promise you, the burn will feel different each week!
After noting the colors and orders, you will then look at how many sets are being performed of each movement. 2 squares of the same letter means 2 sets, 3 squares of the same letter means 3 sets, and so on. This is when you use your knowledge of reps and weight to decide what weight to use, or how hard to perform a movement (note that specific rep ranges will be given for each week).
The less sets (squares) there are, the more reps you perform, meaning you use either a lighter weight or an easier modification.
The more sets (squares) there are, the less reps you perform, meaning you use either a harder weight or a harder modification.
