As an IFBB Pro and an accomplished personal trainer, Team Beast athlete Tabi Klausen knows how to get the most out of her workout.
That means not doing the same thing every session. It also includes not being afraid to dial up the intensity. To do that, Tabi uses something she has termed her “T100” workout. It is centered around 100 reps, and, wow, is it intense. You’re going to need a scoop of Beast Mode Black for this one.
“Basically, you’re picking a bodypart, lowering the weight and doing 100 reps for the whole workout,” Tabi said. “I love these, and my clients are crying at the end. The whole goal is to get 100 reps without stopping. It’s definitely not easy.”
If it sounds challenging, it definitely is. But the reward is a great session in the gym that pushes you, and can bring you out of any training plateau. Tabi doesn’t recommend using the “T100” method for every training session. But it’s a great way to change things up when things become mundane.
Exercise selection is also important for a “T100” session. For example, if it’s chest day, Tabi suggests something like a machine chest press. It is more stable, and it will be easier to maintain good form when the reps become difficult. And they will definitely become difficult.
From there, Tabi suggests moving to something like the pec deck. You’ll do another 100 reps here and it will be intense. Tabi suggests adding a shoulder exercise or two with an upper body T100 workout, along with a tricep exercise. That means something like a shoulder lateral raise or front raise, using something as light as a 5-lb. dumbbell.
It may sound light, but the burn and the pump will be extraordinary. To finish up, throw in some bench dips or machine dips, leaving your triceps completely fried. You better believe you’ll need some Beast Sports BCAA 2:1:1 and Beast Protein after that.
“You should feel smoked by then,” Tabi said.
