Heavy Hittin Bodybuilding Plan Week 4

Heavy Hittin Bodybuilding Plan!
Week 4

By Strength Runner and Trainer Dave Gluhareff or on Facebook under TrainWithDave –


Lite Weights Shocker!
This Week for Week 4 it’s going to be a Lite Weights Shocker and the Goal is 4 Circuits of 15-20 reps (Lite Weights) where you should be getting a tuff burn at 15 reps and barely be able to make it to 20 reps. If 15 reps is easy then add heavier weights. If 15 reps is not possible then lighten the weight a bit.  


Be ready to get your HEART and Muscles Pumpin!  You should attain a high heart rate and heavy but safe breathing during the entire workout! Your Goal this week is a Strength Shocker and Cardio all in one to avoid a training Plateau!!
