Power Law "Quick Set"

If done as outlined, the Power Law Workout should only take about 45 minutes to complete. However, in cases where you find yourself extremely pressed for time (i.e. intense work schedule, heavy travel, personal emergencies, etc.), you can do a Power Law “Quick Set” which will give you a very basic full body workout. This routine consists of just two exercises:

Dead Lifts
Pull Ups

Using the 15-8-4 routine with the 10-15 second rest intervals, this condensed workout should only take you about 10-15 minutes to complete.

Note: this is not a permanent substitute for a full Power Law Workout. It is just a quick and convenient way to get in some essential strength training during those rare times where life circumstances prevent you from doing the full weekly routine. So don’t start getting any ideas about slacking off!

    Great comment! If I had to add a third exercise to the condensed version, it would definitely be rowing.

    I often do these small pairings as well…keeps me tight and seems to suppress my hunger. I can typically do a Power Law workout with two exercises in about 6-7 minutes….I will then do 5 x 1 sets of 150 meter rows – row for 35 seconds and rest 35 seconds…lots of work packed into a short amount of time….easy 15 minutes in and out….but only in a pinch 🙂
