Current Training Program

My motto is “reps on reps on reps,” so I like to incorporate two different days each week for each muscle group – one heavy strength-training session and one higher volume muscle endurance training. Sometimes I incorporate them both in one session if I haven’t had the chance to get in all my workouts.
Here’s a sample of a typical week:
Monday – Legs (heavy weight) & shoulders (light weight)
Tuesday – Chest (heavy weight), biceps (light weight) & core (high reps)
Wednesday – Back (light weight) & triceps (heavy weight)
Thursday – Legs (light weight), shoulders (heavy weight) & core (weighted reps)
Friday – Chest (light weight) & biceps (heavy weight)
Saturday – Back (heavy weight), triceps (light weight) & core (high reps)
*High intensity and focus is key in every session. Almost always to failure on last reps of any set.
