This program is based on classic principles. Make sure you are doing the sets intensely, focusing on the negative phase of the motion range and keep rest breaks as short as possible. You can vary exercises from one workout to the other, but you should use some intensity-boosting technique each time: supersets, giant sets, drop sets etc. To achieve a leaner physique, aerobic exercise is part of the program twice a week, either in the weekend or one on the rest day during the week, and the other in the weekend. Exercises marked with an asterisk can be done in supersets.
