Mo's Strength Routine
Karelin, the ultimate strength athlete
My routine is not sport specific but I will adjust my program to achieve a specific goal event. Most of the time I do some variation of this routine. Balanced strength and progression are the primary focus. Volume and intensity are based on my recovery. Typically I will do each workout twice in ten days. I do 15-40 sets total and the workout takes less than an hour.
Variations include Front Squats, Split Squats, One Legged Squats, Leg Extensions and Stiff Legged Deadlifts.
Chest, Triceps & Shoulders
Lying Triceps Extension
Bent Over Raises
Variations include Flys, Peck Deck, Pullovers, French Press and rotator cuff exercises.
Back & Biceps
Low Cable Row
Variations include Pull downs, DB/BB rows andCable curls.
*Abs (abdominal) training is done prior to every routine as part of my warm-up. I superset crunches, Russian Twists, Hanging Leg Lifts and Tucks. Occasionally I'll include Side Bends and Knee Pulls. I use dumbells or plate to reduce the number of reps to 12-20 per set.
