4.) Maybe go super heavy and just do 3/3/3

You are using TWO dumbbells the entire time.

We don’t usually do 2 DB front squats, so here’s what it looks like:

Full Body Aesthetics Day 5

Progressive Overload Movements (RPE: 9-10)
Standing Barbell Strict Press
Set 1) 5 reps @ 65% of 1RM
Set 2) 5 reps @ 75% of 1RM
Set 3) MAX unbroken reps @ 85% of 1RM

*Rest 2-3min. Between Sets

Accessory Movements (RPE: 7-8)
Landmine Curtsy Lunges (3 x 15 )

– 15 Reps on EACH LEG

– Really focus on the movement and put all the pressure into your glutes. Also, as you watch the video, pay close attention to the hand placement! This is very important if you want to feel comfortable throughout the lift.

Rest 90sec. between sets

Single DB Cleavage Cutter (3 x 20 )

Little bit lighter weight here and just hitting high reps to get those chest fibers pumped! Make sure you choose a weight that is challenging enough to really feel it. In additon, try to squeeze the DB together as you complete each rep!
Straight Arm Lat Pull-down (3 x 12 )

Rest 90sec. between sets

*Cable machine or banded like the video

Tricep Push-Downs (3 x 15 )

Rest 90sec. between sets

*Cable machine or banded like the video
*REMEMBER, this is pronated versus supinated like a “pull-down” grip.

Alternating DB Curls  (3 x 12 )

– 12 reps on each arm
– Be sure to turn the DB at the top and really work that motion.

Rest 90sec. between sets

30 Rep Standing Barbell Calf Raises

– 10 reps with your toes facing forward
– 10 with your toes facing slightly inward
– 10 more reps with your toes facing slightly outward

Rest 90sec. between sets

*Go as heavy as possible (RPE 10 here) with slow and controlled reps. NO bouncing reps or super fast reps.

ALL of the sets above are “Working Sets.” A true set starts at the RPE numbers prescribed above. Warm up sets DO NOT count towards the sets listed  above.

Recommended Warm-Up Routine:
1.) Spend 5-10min. on any kind of low impact cardio
2.) Spend 5min. either foam rolling the primary muscle groups for the day or doing a few stretches that will benefit the primary lift for the day.
3.) Complete 1-3 sets of every movement above with lighter weights than your working sets. (For most of you, this all that’s needed)

How to read “RPE”
RPE means “rate of perceived exertion.” It’s measured on a scale between 1 and 10. 1 is the lowest and 10 is the highest. When it says an RPE of 7, that means that you left 3 reps in the tank. And an RPE of 10 Means that you hit absolute failure. Make sure you truly hit these numbers! This makes or breaks results!
