Weightlifting Question

  • I need clarification...For the upper body workout you repeat 6 sets (x12, x10, x8, x6, x12, x12) 5 times?

    How long does that take on average?

  • Yes

    Chest

    Back

    Shoulder

    Biceps

    Triceps

    It's 12, 10,8,6, 12 for each.

    It should take 46 minutes if perfectly timed.

  • 314mel,

    The total upper body workout should take 46 minutes. You do a set of 12, 10, 8, 6, 12, 12 for each muscle group then move on the the next muscle group. So 6 sets per muscle group. Make sense? There is a downloadable exercise for on this site under the "library" tab. You can use it to record your workouts but it also makes the workouts much clearer.

    Hope this helps a little.

    Keep posting if you have more questions.

    all the best

  • Thanks that helps Orrin. I was thinking that you go back and do all the muscle groups 5x. That makes so much more sense.

  • Don't forget the minute between each set except for the last one.  And then a two minute rest before the next muscle group.  After you do it a couple times, it becomes instinctual.
