Hello and welcome to another hypertrophy training meets conditioning session.
Today, we will combine some upper & lower bodywork for hypertrophy and finish the training session with some conditioning.
But first thing’s first – never skip your warm-up!
It’s just as important as your actual workout.
I could go on and keep rambling about the importance of warming up but I already did that in a different post.

How to approach it?
For the hypertrophy part: choose a weight that makes the exercises challenging but does not leave you gasping for air.
You should not go to muscle failure but have 2 to 3 reps left in the tank.
For the max effort – it is an all-out effort, nothing more to say. Just go for it.
For the conditioning, push for a good pace from the beginning and don’t try to pace this workout.
You have a 2min break in between the AMRAPs.
Trust your fitness that you will recover and push the pace.
After a long workout like that make sure to have a proper cool-down to avoid injuries & give your body the time to recover:
