Notes: Scale weight as required. Depletion workouts are training sessions that are geared toward exhausting the body's muscle glycogen supply. Your body stores carbohydrates, the primary fuel we burn while training, and muscle glycogen is this storage of carbs. As these storage supplies are depleted your body runs out of power exhausting itself limiting the ability to continue.
This depletion of muscle glycogen has a positive effect on building lean muscle mass and jump starting your body to push past former plateau's. Beware though, upon completing the training your body will require a large intake of calories to replenish and repair the damaged muscles. Stay away from processed food and simple sugars.
