Day 303: Upper Body Hypertrophy Workout


Another awesome sweat-filled workout today!

Today's session was a high volume/high rep/high set Hypertrophy Workout. I completed 26 sets with 45 seconds rest targeting chest, back, shoulders, biceps and triceps.

My schedule calls for two Hypertrophy Workouts a week, back-to-back with tomorrow session focused on lower body.

This type of training is designed to promote muscle growth and overall conditioning as the high volume nature of this training also tends to help with fat loss.

In fact, I felt a sense of deja'vu today as I did similar types of workout routines through Mission 1 & 2 when I followed the Metabolic Surge Fat Loss Training System.

This gives me a lot of confidence as I count down to Day 365 because I already know that my body responds well to high volume/high intensity training techniques.

However, I must be sure to remember that my main focus of Mission 3 is to build muscle as opposed to losing fat. If you take a look at my Day 365 visualization picture you'll see that I still have a lot of work to do!

Will this goal in mind you'll see over the coming days just how much my current training program differs to Surge.

I will continue to outline the major changes I have made to my training and nutrition plan with this muscle gain goal in mind as I progress through Phase 2 of Mission 3.

Ok, time for me to get some rest!

Until tomorrow...

Eat Clean,
Shred Hard,
Think BIG!

P.S. The Australian NRL rugby league finals series starts this week. Back on Day 238 I talked about Origin Intensity and how it pumps me up before a workout. Well today I'll put in a "Big Hits" NRL video just for good measure. Oh man, I love this game!

P.S.S. Below are Day 303 pics for September 7, 2007: Mission 3 Phase 2 - Day 9 of 70

Man, are any of those guys still alive?

Are you interested in the "union" game.

Obviously I am very into rugby world cup and believe that South Africa have a great chance of winning. Surpise Argy victory over France last night.

Eat lots and keep growing.

Hi Dougal,

Yeah mate, I actually played rugby union in high school so I know a bit about it. Funny thing is tonight Japan will play Australia in RWC!

However, rugby league is my favourite because I grew up watching league in Oz where it is more popular than union. But South Africa is 100% union right?


dougal said...

yeah 100% union. They tried league, even brought over some Oz teams but it never took off for some reason.

Won't wish you luck for tonight coz you won't need it, but I'll definately be watching.

The comment here in SA is for the next few weeks..wives, say goodbye to your husbands.

You guys are here at the moment for the 20/20 cricket world cup.

Adam Waters said...

You were right Dougal, Oz took care of Japan no problem. When do SA play their first game?

dougal said...

Hey Adam, SA are playing Samoa to day (sunday) and are throwing in the big guns, so they obviously want our strongest team to have a run. Should be a bruiser, the Samoans never hold back.

Enjoy your weekend mate.

How did SA go? Oz beat Japan 91-3!
