Workout Notes
On the last set of the main compound lifts (listed below), perform as many reps as possible (AMRAP). AMRAP sets in the Workout Routine appear as a separate lift without the rep number listed. At least 5 reps should be performed on the AMRAP set.

DO NOT perform AMRAP on bench and overhead press on the same day!

On push days, super set the tricep pushdown and overhead extensions with lateral raises.

Compound Lifts
Deadlift
Bench press
Squat
Barbell row
Overhead press

Substitutions
Pull ups can be substituted with pulldowns or chinups
See Reddit thread for additional substitutions

Warm-up

90% WW x3
