How to do this Workout

Perform this workout three days a week, resting at least a day between each session. So you might go Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

The workout consists of three complexes, each consisting of three exercises. For each complex, perform the exercises in succession. That is, you will do one exercise after another without rest. Once you complete all three exercises, that's one complex.

Using the chart below, your goal is to complete the number of sets and reps within each complex. For instance, if your goal is to perform three sets of six reps, you will complete three circuits of complex 1, rest, and then move on to complex 2 for another three sets. Do not move on to the next complex until you have finished the prescribed number of sets.

You will time each set and rest exactly as long as it takes to complete that set before starting your next set.

Circuit : Do 1 set of each exercise in a group consecutively, without rests in between. Once  these exercises have been completed, repeat the circuit again - doing 1 set of each with no rests in between. Continue until prescribed number of total sets are performed

Strength : Complete all sets of an exercise at the same time with rests in between. Then move to the next exercise.

Superset : Two moves done consecutively (like a circuit) with no rests in between.
