PHASE 2: WEEK 4
If you’re feeling really good and want to make the Shortcut to Shred sessions even more intense, start performing a “cardio accelerated rest-pause dropset” on the last set of each major exercise. The technique is as brutal as it sounds, believe me. Cardio accelerated rest-pause dropset: Take the last set of each exercise to muscle failure. Then, rack the weight and perform cardio acceleration by running in place for 15-20 seconds. Pick up the weight and continue doing reps until you reach muscle failure again. Immediately decrease the weight by 20-30 percent and lift until you reach muscle failure again. You are now done with the set and ready to move to the next exercise.
