Learn How to Break Through Fitness Plateaus — Try This 5x8 Workout!

One of the easiest and best ways to break through fitness plateaus is to change up your training. You can add more reps, more weight, or just try a different approach to your workouts. 

That's precisely what BodyRock Trainer Sean's new BR+ 5 x 8 series does: it supercharges your workout by changing up your workout structure. Instead of doing standard circuits or superset intervals or reps, 5 x 8 training necessitates that you do two minutes of cardio and six minutes of lifting for five distinct circuits.

 

Ready to break through fitness plateaus and see more sexy, sculpted lean muscle? Ready to burn major fat during and after your workout? Of course you are.
