Post-Holiday Workouts for Bulkers and Cutters

This holiday season, don't be afraid to pile your plate with food, just be prepared to punish yourself the next day.


Cutters have it trickier, but you don't have to compromise getting lean or staying that way to have a good time. The next day will be a great opportunity to take advantage of the caloric energy overload; you’ll be prepared for some high intensity training. NEXT-DAY TRAINING FOR CUTTERS Combining H.I.I.T. (High Intensity Interval Training) instead of traditional cardio with higher rep volume resistance training will help balance out your skewed caloric intake from the day before. Start out by hopping on the treadmill. The first minute will be a walk (~4 mph) , the second minute a jog (~6 mph) and the third minute a sprint ~8-10 mph). Repeat the cycle for a total of 15 minutes. After completing your interval cardio, set up the following exercises: Exercise 1: Deadlift Exercise 2: Bench Press Exercise 3: Military Press Exercise 4: Alternating Dumbbell Curls Exercise 5: Tricep Pushdowns Exercise 6: Hanging Leg Raises Perform three sets of each exercise. Adjust the weight so you are reaching complete failure between 12 and 15 reps.
