Tri Sets – Specific Areas

22 Aug

If you did everything on this list it would take over an hour.  You could do parts of the workout each day and you would have achieved a full body workout that week.

NOTE: Do up to 15 repetitions of each exercsie and allow enough time to recover before moving on but only up to 60 seconds rest. You are going to be working (on most block) the same muscle group over and over so fatigue will be building.

This is best for those who want to a shorter and targeted workout on a specific body part. Two or more blocks could be added together. Here are some good combinations;


  • 1 and 2 gives a complete lower body workout
  • 2 and 3 give a nice glutes and back workout, you could even add in block 3 for a thorough posture and core workout
  • 3, 4 and 6 will give you a thorough upper body workout
  • 4 and 5 will give you an opposing muscle workout for upper body
  • ANY BLOCK can be done alone and can only be done once for a super quick blast on a specific area you wish to accelrate results.
