BE YOUR HERO

This set is a minute on and minute off set aimed at chipping away reps toward an exercise. Start your timer for 1-minute and begin exercise 1 working toward 150 reps. At the end of 1-minute of work, remember your number of reps you left off at (let’s say it was 40…).  You will then perform the active recovery drill for that set for the next minute. After a minute, of active recovery work, complete another minute of exercise 1 working toward your 150 reps (if you stopped at 40 after the first minute, start counting again at 41, 42, 43, and so on). Keep working at this pattern of chipping away at exercise 1 until you accumulate 150 reps while taking 1 minute active recovery every minute. You are done with set # 1, once you reach 150 reps of that exercise. Then move to set #2 which is done in the same pattern but only to 125 reps. Keep working down the workout completing 1 set at a time. If there is a right and left side to an exercise, perform half the reps on each side.
