WEEK 6 WORKOUT OVERVIEW - "Remix Revolutions"
 
I am calling this week's workout "The Remix."  Why?  Most of the exercises you will be doing are basic moves with a twist...they have been "remixed" so that they are more challenging and involve the entire body.
Take the first exercise, for example.  It is a hybrid - it combines a stiff-legged deadlift, bent over row, and barbell curl.  Think about it - three exercises combined into one...three times the work...three times the challenge!  Of utmost importance, as with all other exercises, is your ability to effectively brace the muscles of your core prior to and while performing this complex movement.  If you feel your lower back, chances are that you're not bracing your abs, and are therefore losing stability.
