The 1000 Rep Challenge


Ready for a new challenge? How about 1000 reps in a single workout?

Don't panic. You can do this. It's not as bad as it sounds. I do it once a week-every week on Wednesday.

It's high rep, light weight, 10 exercises for 100 reps each in as few sets as possible.

This prior article is required reading-Up for a Challenge?

"The 1000 Rep Challenge" just builds on Up for a Challenge by expanding the challenge to 10 exercises in the same day.

Pick any isolation exercises you like. (No compound lifts). I suggest picking exercises for lagging muscles or muscle groups or exercises for muscles that respond best to high reps-calves, delts, traps, etc.

I do my regular routine on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and the 1000 rep challenge on Wednesday.

Use 35-40% of your 1 rep max. Increase the weight when you can do 100 reps in a single set.

Try it but hold the screems to a minimum.
