I personally like to start my workout with 5 minutes of low intensity cardio to get the blood flowing and warm the body up a bit. Next I do some light band work to warm up all the muscles and joints. Before I start with my first working set, I do a couple of warming up sets to warm up the muscles even more, practice the form and get used to the mind muscle connection.
What should I focus on during this program?
Mind muscle connection.
Form is better than weight.
Eat to build muscle. Not excessive calories.
Should I do cardio during this program?
Cardio recommendations: Whether I’m trying to lose fat or build muscle, I always like to do at least 3 cardio
sessions per week. Not only because it burns calories, but also because it’s good for your health and
cardiovascular system. I prefer low intensity steady state cardio like incline walking or a nice bike ride. You can
also do HIIT cardio if you like to push yourself, but I feel
that HIIT cardio really affects my weight lifting sessions.
For that reason I keep the intensity lower so I have all the energy that I need to lift heavy weights in the gym
What are supersets and drop sets?
*a superset is when you do a set from one exercise followed by another set from a different exercise without rest time between these sets
*with a drop set I drop the weight by 50% and then go all the way to failure
