Beat Me Down- Ep. 6- "Gravity Kills!" (525 reps)
Combining bodyweight exercises with the intensity of having to use extreme brute force to flip a tire; is there anything else you wish you were doing right now? This episode of BMD is really going to push you to your limit and show that you don’t need iron weights to put your body through a killer workout! But the real challenge here is going to be trying to figure out the best possible way to complete all 6 exercises as fast as you can! Each exercise has a set number of reps that must be completed and the workout is not done until all 525 reps are complete.
My Leg Workout- Scott Herman
Once you begin to feel comfortable with the weights, it is time to increase the intensity of your workout! You need to "shock" your body at times or else it will get used to doing the same exercises and you will notice that it takes a longer time to get that same "pump" you got when you first started to workout. Sometimes you won't even be sore!
ZEUS CHEST! A Chest Worthy of the GODS!
If you struggle with an uneven chest then it is time to switch your routine! Dumbbells will allow you to activate more muscle fibers and ensure that you are working out each pectoral evenly. For the best results, find an experienced spotter to ensure that you are maximizing each rep and finish each rep range for both arms. We are going to be focusing on muscle growth and a bit of strength gain with this routine so you will be doing a pyramid for your sets. Remember, although you are expected to max out your weight for each rep rang, do not sacrifice weight for form!

I was wondering if it is possible to strength train and hypertrophy train at the same time. I want to gain a considerable amount of strength in my legs and lower back and want to gain a considerable amount of muscle on everything else. So would it be affective to do 3-6 reps on my legs and lower back, and do 8-12 on the rest of my body? What would be the optimum sets per exercise for these two training methods if possible to do at the same time? Thanks!

I'm 21 yrs old and have been lifting for about 2 years. My freshman year of college I
weighed 170lbs at 6'3" tall. I am now up to around 195lbs and was recently measured at about 12% body fat. For the past six months I have been working with routines that I based off of your videos (drop sets, etc) mixing it up every month or so. My typical week is:
Monday- Chest/Abs : Tues- Arms : Wed- Legs : Thurs- Back : Fri- Shoulders/Traps : Sat/Sun- Rest
+abs 3 to 4 days a week and playing basketball around 1 hr a day.
I have been gaining muscle slowly, but would like to really focus on increasing
mass without increasing my body fat percentage. I eat cleanly and try to take in at
least 3,500 calories a day. Could you please suggest a routine, or at least
sets/reps/number of exercises I should be doing per muscle group in order to
achieve my goal. Getting up to 200lbs lean would be a good start.

Let me tell you a little about myself first before I ask you guys my question. I am 29 years old 5'7" weight 150 pounds and have a body fat percentage of 14.69%. I have always been around the same weight maybe 10 pounds heavier at my worst and higher fat percentage but for the most part I have been fit and active all my life. My goal is to get more muscle definition. I do not necessarily want to get bigger as I need to stay agile and quick for my true passion (soccer) and I want maintain to that lean look. I do want my muscles to show more though. Should my goal be to build muscle or to loose fat? and if I should be working on building muscle should I go for a traditional muscle building splits or total body workouts? Oh, also I am already following the SHF meal plan and I take about 2500 calories with 400g in carbs 100g protein and 70g fat.

Hey guys, I want to throw in here before I get started on my question, you guys do an awesome job answering all the questions to the best of your ability.. Very informative... Ok to start my question.. or maybe questions. I workout at about 6:30am 3-4 times per week as it's the best time to fit my schedule. I would like to know if I should be eating food before my workout and if so what should I be eating, or should I just drink a protein shake before and breakfast after? Another, I'd say more of a favor, is what would be a good routine for me to use considering my schedule? Thank You in advanced for everything, keep up the awesome work.
