My New Workout Regimen

My new fitness routine of two-a-days starts tomorrow.  I am just coming off of using Serge Nubret’s low-weight, extremely high rep method of workouts.  My overall numbers for lifting are on the low side but the goal is to smash my way up while leaning out.

I have a gym at work, but the equipment is limited.  There are dumbbells up to 100 pounds, but no squat rack, bar bench, cables, or pull up bar (there is one but it’s sketch as fuck).  So, I’ve designed this with my limitations in mind.  You’ll see the afternoon/lunch workouts primarily are dumbbell or body weight exercises.

I’m currently 5’9″/5’10” and about 175 pounds.
