The 25-Rep Workout Routine

There is a magic number of reps for gaining muscle and strength. We found it!

Day 2 Exercise 1

Overhead Press

Sets: 5; Reps: 5 Grab the bar with a slightly wider-than-shoulder-width grip. Nudge the bar off the rack and hold it at shoulder level with your elbows forward slightly so your forearms point straight up. Squeeze your shoulders together and push your chest out. Begin pressing the bar overhead and push your head forward so that the bar ends up in line with the back of your head.

Day 2 Exercise 2

Incline Bench Press (Not Shown)

Sets: 5; Reps: 5 Lie on an adjustable bench set at a 30- to 45-degree incline. Grab the bar with an overhand, shoulder-width grip, and lift it off the rack, arching your back. Tuck your elbows and lower the bar to the upper part of your chest. Once the bar touches your chest, press the weight up.

Day 2 Exercise 3

Dip (Not Shown)

Sets: As Many as Needed; Reps: 50 Suspend yourself over the bars and then lower your body until your upper arms are almost parallel to the floor.

Day 2 Exercise 4

Pull-up (Not Shown)

Sets: As Many as Needed; Reps: 50 Suspend yourself over the bars and then lower your body until your upper arms are almost parallel to the floor. Back to The 25-Rep Workout >>
