Default Go Hard Get Lean 4 x 40

Workout Title: Go Hard Get Lean (February 2015)

Ranking Out of 10: I'm giving this a 10. Really really enjoyable and challenging program.

Your age (range) and gender: 41 male

Your fitness level (beginner, intermediate, advanced): advanced

Personal limitations (e.g., injury, equipment, limited schedule, etc.) none

Workout Positives:
  • Very time efficient workouts
  • Great mix of meathead and bodyweight exercises
  • Lots of variety in this one I don't think I'll get bored with it
  • Supersets well devised so I'm not running from one end of the gym to the other or taking up too much equipment

Workout Negatives: None. This ones a keeper

Exercise Substitutions/Changes Used: None. Oh I just did plank to pushup instead of the 90% rocking plank to pushup because I found it all a bit to convoluted.

Who Would You Recommend This Workout To (e.g., pressed for time, don't have access to a full gym, looking to build better balance, looking to build "show" muscles, etc.):

Anyone wanting to lean out and maintain strength and improve conditioning. Time poor individuals who are looking for a 4 day program that doesn't take forever to get through.


TT Workout Done Prior to This: Meatheads 5 x 5

TT Workout to be Done Next: Not sure yet? Might go back to 5 x 5 with suggested round 2 substitions.

Other Comments: Just a really enjoyable workout. Love the variety both with each individual workout as well as from day to day. Very time efficient. That power abs circuit is one of the toughest things I've ever done in my life though. Got some work to do there before I stop embarrassing myself with it.

Early call but I'm going to say this will go down as a classic like MRT 1.0.

That 9 minute ab thing was truly terrible.

I'm confused on the tempo. What is the zero at the end for. So for the dead lift, it says 3-0-1-0....I get down,down,down,up,hold for 1 I don't get the extra zero. Wouldn't I just go back to down for 3??

Hey Leslie,
The tempo is as follows: first number-3 is three seconds down,down,down. Second number-0 means no pause at the bottom, so straight back up in 1 second which is the third number. And finally the fourth number would be a pause at the top if there was one, in this case no pause at the top-0.

Enjoy!

AH!! Thanks! I did 3 sets of 1 second booty squeezes for nothing!

Well booty squeezes always count for something. But seriously I do like to squeeze everything at the top of a deadliest. I think it sets me up for the next rep.

Agreed I squeeze those buns tight at the top of each rep. So much so that I now do involuntary squeezes was I'm coaching people. I can't seem to control or stop it
