The V-Taper Plan


You're a man. You want a specific look-broad shoulders, thick, powerful chest, and a lean, chiseled midsection. To do so, you need to blast your upper body and combine just the right amount of conditioning and abs work to melt the fat from your body to reveal a new you. This plan has exactly what you need to sculpt the ultimate guy physique.

How to do this Workout

Perform the following workout 2 times per week. Make sure that you never perform these exercises on back-to-back days.

When you see a number with a letter next to it-such as 1A and 1B-it means the exercises should be performed as a group. Do one set of the first exercise, rest for the prescribed amount of time, and then do one set of the next exercise in the group. Repeat until you've completed all of your sets for each exercise, and then move on to the next group.

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.
