Sets and Reps

For each workout, you’ll train one group with a 4×10 set/rep scheme and the other with a 5×5 set/rep scheme, switching the two schemes each workout. So if you train Group 1 with 4×10 and Group 2 using 5×5 one day, the next time you hit the gym you will train each group with the opposite pattern.
