My Heavy Duty Workouts – Part 3

Posted by

 

I train every third day with my own modified 20-40 minute Heavy Duty (or High Intensity) training.

My weight training is divided into three workouts:

1. Chest, shoulders and triceps
2. Back, biceps and forearms
3. Thighs, calves and abs

I keep my muscles under continuous tension. The rests between exercises are so that my pulse and breathing go clearly down.
