OVERALL Thoughts: I love the bulldozer sets; high volume + high intensity is a recipe for an engaging workout and growth. Ideally the bulldozer sets will be performed with the same weight across but since this was the first week, I needed to experiment and find good weights moving forward. Mind muscle connection on this workout is intense and a definite must.
