    Widow-Maker Power Workout: A Four-Week Plan


    The purpose of this plan is to grow lean, hard muscle mass by lifting heavy for several sets with little rest in between, using the same weight load and then doing a Widow-Maker set of many reps for the same exercise. Here is the Plan:

    Keep the same weight for all 6 sets, but you may lose a rep or two at the end. For example set 1 - 4 you get the 6 reps, set 5, 5 reps and the last set 4. Pick a good weight and don't lower it even if it means 2-3 reps total on the last set.

    On the high rep sets don't just do them light and go through the motions, go heavy and hard. For example on the 50 reps of squats pick a weight you can only get 20-30 reps with and then just take 2-3 deep breaths and bang out 4-6 more reps, breath and do more until you get the reps in. This is the Widow Maker set!

    The rest between sets is 60-seconds and do a few warm-up sets before you begin the exercise. Stretch the working muscle between sets for 20-30 seconds.

    Calves and Abs work is done twice a week. Pick one exercise and do 5-6 sets of as many reps as you can do for each.

    Do Cardio on off days from weights, 20 minutes of HITT or intervals.
    Do 5 min warm-up and 5 minute cool down so total time is 30 min with 20 minutes being interval or HITT.

    Today it was Chest, Triceps and Shoulders

    Incline Bench Dumbbell Press 6 x 6 x 50 pound dumb bells, 1 X 20 x 45 pound dumb bells

    Flat Bench Dumbbell Press 6 x 6 x 52.5 pound dumb bells, 1 X 20 x 45 pound dumb bells

    High Pulls (wide grip upright row, but you pull to the forehead) – 4 x 4 x 75 pounds

    Heavy Laterals – 3 x 8 x 22.5 pound dumb bells

    Press Down – 4 x 10 x 70 pounds (rope, v-bar, straight bar)

    Decline Dumbbell or Barbell Extensions - 4 X 8 x 50 pound fixed barbell

    Supplements:

    I am using the Flex Wheeler Signature Series as part of my training regimen:

    Kre-Alkalyn EFX PRO Pre-Workout Energy and Muscle Activator
    Nytric EFX PRO Vascularity and Muscle-Pump Intensifier
    CELL RUSH Post Workout Muscle Cell Re-fueling System
    LBA PRO Liquid Amino Acid and Protein Complex
    LG5 PRO Liquid Glutamine and Cell Volumizer
    NF-PRO 100% Pro-Grade Whey Protein

    I'm getting close to max on a few exercises. I'll keep pushing.

    Weight: 154.0


    We completed The Widow Maker program on Wednesday and did circuit training today to finish the week. The circuit training consisted of 8 sets of 8 reps of unassisted pull ups, unassisted dips, hanging leg lifts, crunches, push ups and 8 x 25 of skip rope. My training partner and I got through the eight sets and then spent 15 minutes boxing, with me holding the pads and my partner wearing the gloves. It was an aerobic session.

    On Monday, we start a new program called The Phoenix. Here it is:

    “The Phoenix,” A Full-Body Hypertrophy Workout

    Phoenix (mythology), a mythical bird that dies in flames and is reborn from the ashes.

    DAY ONE of Weight Training


    Pull Ups, medium grip: as many sets as needed to get in 50 reps.

    Dumbbell Row: 3 X 4-6 with a drop on the last set (drop sets do 6 reps drop the weight 30% and go to failure).

    Pull Down with V bar: 3 X 6.

    Rack Dead Lifts: 2 X 4-6, 1 X 30.

    Curls: 3 X 4-6 with last set as a drop.

    Preacher Curl: 2 X 6-8 with burns on last set (burns are 1/4 reps at the mid point).

    Dumbbell Bench/Flies: 3 X 10-12, Positive stroke is a press, negative stroke is a fly.

    Upright Row, medium grip: 2 X 10-12.

    Seated Triceps Extension: 2 X 10-12.

    Leg Extension: 1 X 50-100 (on 50-100 rep sets pick a light weight and go for 50-100 nonstop, this burns).

    Seated Leg Curl: 1 X 50-100.

    Calf press: 1 X 50-100.

    In each case, try to do the higher reps for each set.

    This is a great change-of-pace plan and you should look forward to adding weights to every exercise over the four-weeks of The Phoenix.

    DAY TWO of Weight Training

    4 x 8
    1 x 30

    Experiment with different weight levels and strive to add weights to each exercise each week. You will add endurance and strength. The Phoenix Full Body Hypertrophy Workout is an excellent program.

    My training partner had to go out of town today so I decided to take a break from The Phoenix and have fun with something else. I did a leg and calves workout I call 20-Somethings. You can actually do 20-Somethings with any body part.

    I did three slow sets of 20 reps of several legs and calves exercises. I tried to lift each set as heavy as I could for as long as I could and then dropped the weight one plate to finish the 20-rep set.

    Leg Press 3 x 20 reps

    Leg Extension 3 x 20 reps

    Seated Leg Curls 3 x 20 reps

    Abductors 3 x 20 reps

    Adductors 3 x 20 reps

    Off-Season Weight: 152.0

    On Monday I will begin training my clients and myself using a new plan designed to BUILD MUSCLE.

    Hypertrophy Strength Training

    Day 1:
    Incline Bench Press – 4 x 4
    Flat Dumb Bell Press – 4 x 4
    Wide Grip Lat Pull – 4 x 4
    Heavy Laterals – 3 x 6 each way (side, bent)
    Triceps Press down – 4 x 6

    Day 2:
    Leg Press – 4 x 4
    Squats – 4 x 6
    Hack Squat – 4 x 5
    Leg Curl – 4 x 5
    Leg Extension – 3 x 4
    Calf Raises – 3 x 10

    Day 3:
    Dips – 4 x 4 (add hanging weight as needed)
    Incline Dumb Bell Flies 3 x 4
    Shoulder Press – 4 x 4
    Close Grip Bench Press – 4 x 4
    Decline Triceps Extension – 3 x 6

    Day 4:
    Reverse Grip Barbell Row – 4 x 4
    Medium Grip Lat Pull – 4 x 4
    Medium Grip Chin-ups – 4 x 6
    Barbell Curl – 4 x 4
    Preacher or Dumb Bell Curl – 4 x 6

    Cardio:
    After training 30 min. 4 X week, moderate pace at 70% VO2 Max

    Notice there are only 4, 5, or 6 reps in each set. This is a Heavy Lifting plan, so pick a weight where you will come close to failure at the end of each set. Be deliberate in your pace. Squeeze the muscle at the top of the lift. Lower the weight slowly for negative effect. Try for a four-count rep. One count, power up, then, two, three and four count, a slow decent.

    Do Day 1 and Day 2, rest a day, and then do Day 3 and Day 4. Take the weekend off.
