Shred Down Workout

When performing the Shred Down Workout, be sure to maintain a fast tempo (1 to 2 seconds on concentric and eccentric).  Of course, don’t bounce, go slow on the peak and bottom.  You should be going about 80% of max for 15 reps.  First set is lighter to warm up (about 60%).  Last four sets are at 80%.  Rest in between sets depends on your level of cardio.  I maintain a good temperature and heart beat (if I feel like my body is cooling down, I’ll simply job in pace to keep up my heart rate).  Shred Down workout shares similar qualities to a circuit set.  Rest in between sets should be kept as short as possible (15-30 seconds) and there should be no lag between exercises.
