FAQ

What weight should I be using?
It's really important that you get a grasp on where you're at with your strength as quickly as possible so that you can ensure that you're using the right weights for your workouts. A good way to do this is to implement 2-3 build up sets before your working sets to get to the weight that is most suitable for you at that time. A few important things to note with the rep ranges set in your workout plan. First, you will see a combination of both strength and hypertrophy based rep ranges. A general rule of thumb is that if you're operating in the strength rep ranges you want to be aiming for 80% + of your 1 rep max and ensuring you get 2-3 minutes rest between sets. For hypertrophy you want to be aiming for 65-75% of your 1 rep max and ensuring you get approx 90-120s rest between sets. Here's a more detailed breakdown of weight to use depending on the rep range: STRENGTH: 3 - aim to use 90% of your 1 rep max 4-5 - aim to use 85% of your 1 rep max 6-7 - aim to use 80% of your 1 rep max HYPERTROPHY: 8-9 - aim to use 65-75% of your 1 rep max 10-12 - aim to use 60-65% of your 1 rep max
What are the goals of the program?
The purpose of this challenge is simple. To build better, sustainable habits that’ll serve you for the long term. I want your focus to not only be on feeling and looking physically strong but also mentally strong too. Working on your discipline, getting sh*t done when you don’t feel like doing it, and really pushing yourself out of your comfort zone will give you a sense of reward you can’t replace.
How to schedule the program into a week?
The program follows a 5 day split with two rest days. You can schedule the workouts and rest days in a way that fits best with your routine.
What if I want to follow a different Level Up training plan
Although i’ve put a lot of time into this training plan, you may still prefer to follow one of my other programs like BUILD or HOME. This is absolutely fine. The key is getting the workouts done each day and staying consistent throughout.
