Lee Hayward: Hey, it's Lee Hayward here from LeeHayward.com. I just got finished my workout and come from the gym right now. I got a cool tip for you that will help make any workout routine that you're doing; more productive in terms of building muscle, burning more body and freezing your metabolism, stimulating more anabolic hormones in your system and all that good stuff. What it is, it's simply by doing a set of 20 rep squats, before you do your exercises. Now, if you can follow along with my website, as so if you know I'm big fan of the 20 rep squat program. It's one of those programs that stand out among all other programs as just extra productive. Anybody, who goes through the training cycle of the 20 rep squat routine will make, you know solid games in the matter of just, you know six weeks. Literally, you can watch your progress from week to week to week, it's just one of those programs that produce results, you know far better than your standard body parts bit workout routine. But anyway, what you can do is instead of just you know doing the 20 rep squat program as is, you can implement it into your regular routines. So, let's just say for example that you're going to going to the gym, and you're going to train chest and one day you're going to train your back, the next day your arms and extra or whatever your workout split is. All you have to do is give yourself an extra ten minutes, and at the beginning of your work out after you do, you know you warm yourself. Do a set of 20 rep squats, so the way I would do it personally is I would just take you know say that empty bar and bang up to five to ten reps. I play 135, bang up five, ten reps, and then put on you know whatever it is, just let's say, 225 and bang out a set of 20 reps. Now, again the weights that you use are going to be relative to you, I mean maybe you can just use the empty bar that's your 20 reps or maybe you can put on you know 300 plus pounds and bang your 20 reps. Regardless of whatever it is, just take a weight that you could handle, bang out 20 reps. And then the key is each workout, try to increase that weight by five pounds, so if you use just for argument sake we used a 100 pounds in this workout for 20 reps. Next workout use a 105 pounds for 20 reps. But the beauty of this is, what it does, is it stimulate your metabolism against you Know growth hormone stimulator we get testosterone stimulated, I mean you work in the big major muscle groups of the body, your legs, your core, your back, you know all these major muscles groups that come and apply when you squat, and then with the stimulated, and then big jump in your hormones and metabolism and everything else. It just makes sure other exercises that are more effective. Start off with a couple of warm up sits, and then take a working weight and do a set of 20 rep squats. And then in just each work out try to add five pounds to the bar and keep getting all 20 reps. Now, when you do your 20 rep squats do them wrong, don't wear any raps, don't wear a belt or anything like that as it kind of gets in the way when you're doing high reps. Always, try to do full squats, you know squats, so your legs go below parallel and this will help to stimulate the most muscle mass possible. So give that a try, all you have to do is your regular work out routine as you're doing now, but throw away that set of 20 rep squats at the beginning and just you know see how much progress you know over the next month or so by just implementing that one implementing that one little tip. Take care.
