    #ow that you have the miscro'cycel, here is how to organi2e these into a macro cycle$

    At the start of your training cycle, choose weights for your initial heavy days that allow you to get '! reps

    omfortably.

    Then$ each heavy day, try as hard as possible to increase your reps on each hard set 4you do hard sets per bodypar

    ecall6. +ou will need to keep a small training log to keep track of previous performance. Try to maintain the same

    form fom day to day'''don7t get more reps by getting sloppy.

    )very time you reach ! reps, in your ne8t heavy day for that set, increase the weight, but by as little as possible 45 ncrements, or even !.5 if you have .!5 lb plates69 that will knock the reps back down to around or so the ne8t tim

    :n your light days, just mimic your previous heavy set in terms of reps, but use only 150 of the weight. :n these d

    focus on your form, move through the workout more ;uickly, and do not ta8 the muscle. A decent pump and tiny bu
