Sergio Oliva’s Thursday Routine

  • If the exercise does not say the weight increases, pick a weight to stick with for the exercise.
  • If an exercise does not have reps or sets specified, use your own judgement on how you feel that day.
  • For the sit-ups, it is conceivable that at some point you can add weight, but I would say not to until you can do all 10 sets of 50 reps without fail.
  • The leg raises, I suppose, are hanging leg raises. The legs need to remain straight as you do them and come up as high as you can.
  • When doing sidebends with a bar behind your neck, please collar the bar well and try not to do too much weight too soon.
  • The first time you do any of these workouts will be a learning experience of how much weight you should use. I was going to list Oliva’s weights, but they are really quite ridiculous with the sets and reps he does. I will, however, post the photos that have them listed on them. 
That’s all for today guys! Until next time, good luck and train hard!
