celebrity series #8: Justin Bieber

“What do you mean…”

There are Beliebers, and then there are people who aren’t Justin’s biggest fans, but if you’re looking for an effective workout, you’re actually going to love his workout.

As a leaner guy, Justin struggled to put on muscle. His trainer had him work super sets (in regular sets, you take a break after each exercise, but in super sets you do two exercises, one right after the other, before you take a break) of antagonist muscles (muscles that don’t work together) to get the most bang for his workout buck.

JBiebs lifts five times per week for 45 minutes, but we’re going to get all that  goodness into a single session ~~~

The playlist — obviously all the best of Biebs.
