How To:

Protocol: 3 sets — 25 reps/30 reps/35 reps

Target Muscles: Shoulders, Legs, Lower Back, Core

For kettlebell swings, use the heaviest kettlebell possible for the prescribed number of reps.

  • (1) Place a kettlebell in between your feet.
  • (2) Maintain a flat back, bend down, and grab the handle with both hands. This is your base position.
  • (3) Powerfully dip down, press through your heels (squeeze your butt), raise your torso, and vigorously swing the kettlebell up to forehead height. Thrust through your hips at the midpoint and keep your arms straight throughout the motion.
  • (4) Let the kettlebell sit at the apex for as long as possible, bend your knees, and slowly allow it to release between your legs — keep your chest up. Repeat.

You’re following an ascending rep protocol. Start with 25 reps in set 1, do 30 reps in set 2, and finish off with 35 reps in set 3.

 

4. Hanging Leg Raises

How To:

Protocol: 3 sets — 12 reps

Target Muscle(s): Lower Abs, Abs (All)

  • (1) Hang from a pull-up bar with your hands at shoulder-width.
  • (2) While keeping your back straight, contract your lower abs and slowly raise your legs until they form a 90º angle with your torso. Do not swing, rock, or use momentum and keep your legs straight.
  • (3) Slowly lower down to the bottom.

If Hanging Leg Raises are too difficult at first, replace with Hanging Knee Raises. You can also do knee raises on a captain’s chair.

How To:

Protocol: 3 sets — 15 reps center/10 left/10 right

Target Muscle(s): Rectus Abdominis, Obliques, Serratus

  • (1) Set-up a cable stack with a rope attachment. Sit on your knees and bring the rope down by your ears.
  • (2) Crunch down and bring your elbows in towards your body, all the way to the floor. SQUEEZE your abs at the bottom.
  • (3) Slowly release all the way back up to a full extension.
  • (4) Do 15 reps and then repeat the same movement, but twist your torso and crunch down towards the left. Do 10 reps and repeat the same for the right side.

Your abs drive the movement — not your arms, back or shoulders. Initiate the movement with your core.

 

7. [DROPSET] Lateral Raises

How To:

Protocol: 2 drop sets — 12 reps + 12 reps + 12 reps PER DROP SET

Target Muscles: Lateral Deltoids, Shoulders (All)

If you forgot, drop sets are a group of sets performed back-to-back—without rest—where you reduce the weight on each subsequent set. It’s also known as “running the rack.” And it produces INSANE pumps.

So for instance, one drop set could look like:

  • Set #1: 12 lateral raises x 15 LBs →
  • Set #2: 12 lateral raises x 10 LBs →
  • Set #3: 12 lateral raises x 7.5 LBs

That’s 1 full drop set. We’re doing TWO of those. Don’t worry if you fatigue and can’t bang out every rep — push it and get as far as possible.

 

8. [SUPERSET] Ab V-Ups Ab Flutter Kicks

How To:

Protocol: 1 superset — 25 reps + 60 seconds

Target Muscle(s): Lower Abs, Rectus Abdominis

  • (1) Do 25 Ab V-Ups. Maintain a straight back and legs, and try to touch your toes at the top. Lower all the way down to the floor.
  • (2) Immediately lie flat and do Ab Flutter Kicks for 60 seconds. Place your hands under your butt for support, squeeze your abs, and slowly raise your feet up and down. Raise roughly 6″ – 1 foot off the ground — the movement should be short and controlled.

 

9. HIIT Cardio — Stairmaster Blaster


Protocol: Stairmaster — 9 minutes

Finish off your leg workout with the Stairmaster Blaster HIIT Workout. It runs 9 minutes and requires a stair mill (this thing). The stair mill allows you to take lunge steps and shift foot positioning, which actively hits different parts of the lower body.

It’ll completely eviscerate your quads, hammies, and butt after squatting and lunging yourself to death.

If you’re unfamiliar or confused, refer back to the full workout plan. It has all the details you could ever want. And if you don’t have access to a stair mill, substitute it with any of these HIIT workouts.
