This week of workouts is a crucial turning point in the Eternal Beach-Body Workout Plan. As in previous Phase II workouts, you'll be taking a relatively well-rounded approach by working chest, back, arms, legs, and abs in roughly equal measure.

This total-body approach, which incorporates just as many "big rock" compound lifts as it does isolation exercises, will build the next layer of your fitness foundation.


Do each exercise in straight sets; complete all sets of each exercise before moving on to the next.

Make sure you pay attention to the designated rest—45 seconds will go by fast, and you'll be well served by tracking your rest periods on your watch or on a clock.

You should be able to use slightly heavier weights than those you had used for previous higher-volume workouts in Phase I of the Eternal Beach-Body Workout Plan.
