Transformassacre Week 7: Recapping Charlie's Journey
Fat burn: check. Strength building: check. Hulk-like muscles: in progress.
Charlie's been really hitting it hard in week 7 and is prepared for the final week of training before unveiling his new body.
To rewind and recap, the Transformassacre began with weeks 1 through 3 designated a Fat Burning Phase. The training focus during that period was oriented around supersets and circuits. Rest periods were shorter and rep schemes on the moderate to high end. Charlie's diet at the time also kept starchy carbohydrate intake at a minimum.
As the Transformassacre program progressed into weeks 4 and 5, his trainer, Dan Trink, implemented a Strength Building Strategy. The resistance was dramatically increased, exercises became more complex, rest periods were extended and rep schemes were lowered. As of week 4 and moving forward, Dan also introduced starchy carbohydrates into the diet for post-workout nutrition to aid in muscle recovery.
Charlie is now leaner, stronger and more energized for the home stretch of week 8, the continuation of the Hypertrophy Phase.
