The Four Percent Exercise Library

KATE-LEMERE

If you’re looking to change your body composition, and grow muscle, the below is my go-to exercise library of strength-building drills. If you’re participating in The Four Percent Workout Templates, you can use any of these drills to piece together your workout puzzle.

A few caveats on this exercise library, because you know I’ve got ’em!!

  • At this time, I’m unable to provide video, written, or visual demos. I hope there comes a time where I have the bandwidth to produce content at that volume, but for now, this complimentary content is the best I can do. Any Google inquiry or YouTube search will provide examples to get you on your way
  • The below is not an EXHAUSTIVE list, of course, there are other exercises you can do, but IMO, these are the most efficient
  • Any of these drills:
    • Can be performed with a variety of equipment (unless explicitly stated)
      • Dumbbells
      • Barbells
      • Cables
      • Free motion equipment
      • Benches
      • Band systems
      • Glute loops or booty bands
    • Are made more challenging with an emphasis of rep, isolation, tempo, or elevation/deficit, rest-pause sets, drop sets, or periodization
    • Can be modified by de-loading, or using bodyweight, or performed alternating sides
    • Should be executed over time AND progressed

Now that we’ve got that out of the way – the most effective drills per body part.
