Sample Day 1
Multi-Sport Barbell Force

Instructions similar for ALL workouts in this plan: Warm-up and stretch for 5 -10 minutes. For 15-20 reps, rest 30-45 seconds after each set. For 12 reps, rest 45-60 seconds. For 10 reps, rest 60-90 seconds. If you are in a hurry or you want to make your workout more difficult, you can "superset", meaning that during the rest period for one exercise, you perform the subsequent exercise. For example, immediately after "barbell squats", you would move on to "barbell rows", then back to "barbell squats"...

For the 1st set, choose a weight that you can perform fairly easily. For the 2nd set, add weight and attempt to achieve 75-85%. Add weight for the 3rd set again and, if necessary, the 4th set also.
