four week plan

Uncategorized

Ok – so I finally got my workout schedule written down for the next four weeks. After this my schedule with school will change so I may change this up as well but here you go!!

I am going to do all lifting except abs/calves in sets of 4 with 8-12 reps in each depending on the exercise. I lift the part I am trying to build up (hams/shoulders) with heavier weights for less reps and the ones I am just trying to maintain (biceps/quads) a lighter weight and higher reps. I didn’t have enough time to get pictures for each of these but you can search Bodybuilding.com for the exercises or my previous posts on my Fitness page.

Some of this came from  SimplyShredded.com, some of it came from BodyBuilding.com and some are just my favorites.
