As you begin to read this post I want you to envision how the Hulk looks to you and imagine him as a man that transforms himself into this incredible monster ready to lift some heavy weight! The moment you change into your workout clothes, put your headphones in and step foot into the weight area, you should be completely in the zone and ready to put in some serious work. Why is training mentally draining as well as physically? Read on to find out...
It's pretty obvious that exercising puts a stress on the body in a physical way, but why is it important that we 'get in the zone'? Training is very much a mental game as well as it is a physical one, you have to be in the right frame of mind to train. Have you ever tried to train if you have heard really good or bad news? It's pretty hard to concentrate and keep everything together, right? I always find if you are feeling like this way the best you should do is warm up for 5 - 10 minutes to shake it off. Use this time to forget and focus on what you need to do at that very moment, which is to kill your workout.
When you think of the Incredible Hulk you see large amounts of GREEN muscle that is huge in structure. He takes no prisoners and when he is going to do something, he does it without thinking. Now, obviously he is a made up character who doesn't exist but you can learn a lot from how he acts especially when you are in the gym. Stop thinking... Start doing...
So if you really want to notice a difference in your body shape then you have to be prepared to put in the hard work. You need to push yourself and give each and every workout everything you have got, ok? Got it? GOOD! Let's go!!
Warm Up - 5 - 10 Minutes
Bench Press 100 reps - Rest Pause sets, try and do as many reps as you can without resting for longer than 20 seconds.
Deadlift 100 reps - Same as above
Squat - 100 reps - Same as above
Bent Over Row - 100 reps - Same as above
Lunges - 100 reps - Same as above
Abs - 100 reps - Same as above
Yes you read it correctly, this is 100 reps per exercise before moving onto the next one. Basically in each exercise you are going to need to rest but you want to try and put it off for as long as possible. So, where I have written rest pause, you only want to rest for a maximum of 20 seconds and then get right back into it. Keep your weights heavy too and you will definitely work your body. Remember, this is a hulk smash workout so don't think too much about it, get in there and tear it up!!
To help you get the most out of this intense workout, try using a BCAA powder whilst training to boost performance. This will help you turn green and act more like the hulk. Ok, maybe not but on a serious note the leucine, Isoleucine and Valine within this product can really help your muscles contract better and this means a greater pump for you. A good product is one by Scivation called Xtend :)
