**THE WORKOUTS ABOVE DON’T INCLUDE WARMUP SETS. DO ONE TO TWO WARMUP SETS W/50% OF YOUR WORK WEIGHT ON EACH EXERCISE YOU PYRAMID. REMEMBER, A WARM MUSCLE CONTRACTS MORE EFFICIENTLY THAT A COLD MUSCLE.

**ANY EXERCISE FOR 3 SETS OF DECREASING REPS IS A POWER PYRAMID, SO ADD WEIGHT ON EACH
SUCCESSIVE SET. THE WEIGHTS SHOULD TAKE YOU CLOSE TO FAILURE, SO WHENEVER YOU CAN GET
12 REPS ON THE 1ST WORK SET OF A POWER PYRAMID, UP THE WEIGHT ON ALL 3 SETS AT YOUR
NEXT WORKOUT.

**FEEL FREE TO INCORPORATE INTENSITY TECHNIQUES LIKE 1 1/4 REPS, BUT DON’T ABUSE THEM.
IF YOU START FEELING OVERTRAINED, CUT BACK ON YOUR USE OF THEM. INTENSITY TECHNIQUES
WILL PROBABLY WORK BEST ON THE ISOLATION EXERICSES.

**TAKE IN EXTRA CALORIES, BUT DON’T GET FAT.
**STRIVE FOR STRENGTH AND POWER, AND SIZE WILL FOLLOW.
