The upper body will include chest, arms, shoulders, and back on Mondays and Thursdays. The lower body will include legs, calfs, lower back and hips on Tuesdays and Fridays. Abs will be just abs with cardio on Wednesdays. Leaving me with Saturdays and Sundays to use as rest days and giving my muscle a chance to rebuild and grow. My workouts will follow these numbers of repetitions and sets that are three sets of ten or twelve depending on how I feel that today. As for how much weight I will use is depended on how much I can lift for each exercise and I will put on an extra five pounds of weight after completing each set if necessary. My rest period for between sets will be from one to two minutes before I start the next one. I will also include some circuit training when I feel like I need a change in pace for my workouts.
