Jay was an incredible guest. If you love HIT or just want to optimise your training, diet and habits for you and your clients, you will love this!
Here's two of Jay's workout logs:
Today's upper body split
Each exercise is done with a 5-10 second lifting phase and 5-10 second lowering phase.
1 set of each exercise to muscular failure.
- Arm cross - 1 set to failure
Immediately followed by
- Chest Press (nautilus one) break down set
- Seated Row
- Supinated Pull down
- Reverse delt fly
- shoulder press
- bicep curl
- tricep push down
Using a slow rep cadence allows you to eliminate momentum and let the muscle do all of the work along with maximizing muscle fiber recruitment.
It's not about the exercises you do or how often you do them. It's HOW you do them - intensely.
Lower body split 2 or 3 days later (when Jay doesn't
feel like he's been run over by a truck)
Same cadence, single set to failure principle as above.
- Leg extension
Immediately followed by
- Leg press - rest pause/ breakdown set
- Leg curl
- Calf raise
This lower body workout takes around 8-minutes to complete. His total time in the gym is under 40-minutes per week...
