Default Nov 07 ....4 Day Split

Hi Everyone! I hope you enjoyed getting familiar with the new 4 Day Split workouts. The following rotation will help you get excellent results with them. You can expect to develop nice lean muscle mass, muscular strength, muscle contour, as well as burn body fat, calories, and of course, condition your heart. If you are a cardio lover, feel free to add in your choice of cardio on an off day, but it is not necessary. Especially if you are eating clean :7. Also, I have added an occasional Yoga/Pilates/Total Body Stretch day (any workout of your choice in any length or style). These type of workouts are a nice compliment to heavy training. They lengthen muscle fibers, aid in DOMS recovery, and support one of the major components of physical fitness: flexibility.

Enjoy!


WEEK ONE:

Mon: High Intensity Step/Chest & Back

Tue: Kickbox/Legs & Core

Wed: Yoga/Pilates/Stretch of choice

Default Cathe, I Love the 4-Day Split Rotation!!!!

Cathe:

I love, love, love the 4-Day Split workouts! :7 Thank you for sharing this rotation. It looks great! I love the simplicity of it. :-) Yes, I will be adding bonus cardio on the free days! ;-) The double cardio premix is fun, fun, fun! :7

I have the Slow and Heavy Series, but I cannot lift a heavy enough barbell over my head. Should I substitute Gym Style Legs or do the best I can with Slow and Heavy Legs?

Have a fun and blessed day! :*

Blessings,
Heather B.

Heather,

I would adjust the weight to meet your abilities and do Slow & Heavy. GS Legs is more of an endurance workout, whereas S&H is more of a strength workout. So drop the weight on the barbell, or use dumbbells and enjoy the challenge of S&H.

HTH!

Thank you Cathe for a terrific rotation! I love lifting heavy, but am concentrating on high reps. nonstop workouts right now, which frankly, I detest. Thank you for tempting me with this.I am already doing your new cardio workouts, so far Bootcamp is my favorite. You are amazing with all your new ideas to keep us challenged.:-)

Default Slow and Heavy Legs Problem

Mona:

Thanks for the suggestion. The problem I have with Slow and Heavy Legs is NOT that I am unable to match Cathe’s weight. My lower body is actually relatively strong after hauling around all this weight for years. ;-) The problem is that I NEED a heavy barbell for this workout, but I am unable to lift it over my head. When I use a barbell that I can safely lift over my head (repeatedly), my legs are not challenged at all because the reps are so low. Does that make sense?

Don’t tell Cathe, but I actually prefer more endurance-based workouts like Butts and Guts, Gym Style Legs, and Leaner Legs for my lower body. ;-)

Blessings,
Heather B.

Thanks for posting this, Cathe!

I don't own Slow and Heavy Legs, and you've got it listed for Week Four, Monday. What could I sub in place of this? Could I do the leg work from the 4DS KB DVD? Or Butts and Guts?
