3 sets — 12 reps, 10 reps, 8 reps, heavy weight
Rest — 1 minute


Target Muscles: Quads, Hamstrings, Butt, Core

Barbell squats are designed to destroy the entire lower body, but they’re also spectacular for building a strong lower back, core, and correcting posture. Perform 3 HEAVY sets of 12, 10, and 8 reps, respectively.

Obviously the amount of weight will vary from person-to-person, but be honest with yourself and choose a weight that’s challenging. Heavy weights release more testosterone, which, as I covered earlier, means more fat burn and muscle growth.

One point to note — DO NOT arch your back during the downward part of the motion. Puff out your chest, tighten your abs, and pinch your lower back throughout the entire squat. Get parallel to the floor and powerfully ascend upward.
