If your goal is more weight loss than bulk, this exercise is also a great addition to ramp up those fat burning hormones. Yes women….don’t worry about bulking up and add this exercise into your workouts as well. Get the reps a little higher (8-10), keep the volume high (add a superset with another exercise), go explosive, slow and controlled on the way down, and enjoy that full body lactic burn that is increasing your GH output with every lift! (and we all know GH is a vital hormone in signaling the release of fat from storage).
Since this workout helps develop lean muscle in your quads like the last workout, it is important that you have a rest day in between in order to maximize your results. Remember, working out breaks down your muscles, and it is only with rest and good nutrition that they will repair themselves with more mass.
Make Sure to Follow Form The last lean muscle workout of the week will again involve your quads and abs, but this time you will work your shoulders, biceps, and middle back muscles. In this workout, you will see the classic bicep curl exercise that will develop lean muscle in your biceps.
