“How Do I Approach Each Tier in a 3-Tier Workout?”
When performing the 3-tiered workouts, they almost always adhere to the following format.
Tier 1: Strength
This is where we isolate a total body barbell movement and expect it to be performed at slow sets. You should always be tracking your weight, paying attention to what you’re doing and focusing on building strength. Rest should typically be 90 seconds to 3 minutes between sets, and you should be challenged. Learn your percentages!
Tier 2: Fat Loss & Conditioning
In the second phase, you should think about lighter weight and a bit faster pace. This is where the intensity should be turned up on high and you should be blasting through the workout. Intensity, intensity, intensity!
Tier 3: Finisher
This will be varied depending on the goal of the day. In this instance, we are circling back to strength so choose a weight that is HEAVY and CHALLENGING. Aim to hold on to it for around 30 seconds or so.
