How To Do It
Exercises marked with a letter (6a, 6b, for example) are done in sequence. Perform one set of a, then one set of b, etc., and repeat for all the prescribed sets. Exercises without a letter are done as straight sets—complete all the sets and then move on to the next exercise. To get the most out of each workout, adjust the weights you use like this: The fi rst week, use weights that you know are a little too light. For example, if a set calls for 10 reps, and you know you can use 100 pounds, use only 90. In your second week, increase the weight so that your reps are difficult to complete. By the third week, increase the load again so that you beat last week's performance—you may go to failure. On the fourth week, increase the weights again. You may miss some of your reps, and that's OK. In the fifth week, start the cycle over again.
As an aside, I do eat meat once or twice a week when I go out but about 95% of my protein comes from non-meat sources which is why I refer to myself as a pseudo-vegetarian. I’m not a vegetarian for political, religious, or ethical reasons. I’m a vegetarian because I belive it to be healthier. Can I *prove* that a vegetarian diet is healther? No, but I can’t prove global warming either. Everyone has to decide for themselves what level of proof is required before they change their behaviour. Many studies have indicated that meat can cause heart disease and cancer, the latest was released just today. This study suggests that red meat eaters are 18% more likely to have heart disease and 10% more likely to have cancer.
