Max's Typical (free-weight) Upper-Body Workout!


Nothing fancy here! I train upper-body with 'free-weights' 1 to 2 times per week depending on what other training I've been doing that week, such as surfing or other forms of cross-training.  I use moderate weight to allow for a rep-range of 10 to 12 reps, coming close to failure on the last rep (ATP/creatine failure NOT lactic-acid failure). I go for maximum 'pump' and finish each contraction with an isometric squeeze at the peak. Typically, as you will see, I use traditional free-weight, barbell & dumbbell exercises. Enjoy & thank you!
