    Basically, if you’re past the beginner’s stage and your primary goal is building muscle or improving the way your body looks in virtually any capacity, this program is for you.

    Now let’s get down to the details…

    I find that workout strategy (three day version) not to be the best for me. There are weeks where certain muscles only get a workout once per week. If muscle growth is the goal I think the best approach is to do a hypertrophy specific training HST which involves full body workouts three times a week. Basically, the muscles get a workout every forty-eight hours. You're doing approximately two to four sets per major muscle group (biceps and tricpes are less).

    The typical workout schedule for this type of training is Mon - Wed - Fri.

    But for those who want to take best advantage of the true 48 rest period and repeat training every two days to induce hypertrophy your workout schedule would be Mon - Wed - Friday - Sun - Tues - Thursday - Saturday - Mon - Wed - Fri...etc.

    I've done the Mon - Wed - Fri a week schedule and was pretty satisfied with my results. I may try the every other day approach where my workout days will change every week as I outlined in green. I'll post back here if I am able to get off my ass on Sundays and hit the gym to post whether or not I think it's more effective. But not being able to sleep in on Sundays is going to hurt. icon_lol.gif
