Coach’s Note – Please, please do not review this workout and wonder why there is no “conditioning” portion until you have completed the workout as prescribed, resting only exactly 90 seconds between each movement. Oh yeah, and you also must increase the weight used for a movement if you are able to achieve the high end of the rep range. Cool? Have fun.
