Elaborating a bit about the workout itself, Arnold disclosed that the workout consists of two circuits of 3-4 rounds. He also instructed his fans to rest for 2-3 minutes after every circuit before repeating. As part of the first circuit, ‘The Austrian Oak’ suggested performing Farmer’s Walk for 20-30 steps followed by pushups which can range anywhere from 10-30 reps. “After you complete all the rounds of the first circuit, then move to the next circuit,” said Schwarzenegger.

Circuit two of the workout also begins with performing Farmer’s Walk for 20-30 steps followed by bodyweight squats for 10 to 30 reps. “You can also add weight if you want; your strength will determine how many reps you perform,” explained Arnold.
