My Workout Philosophy View My Full Workout Philosophy
I am a firm believer that results come from a smart, calculated approach. Lift hard, as heavy as needed and consistently.
I believe in training every muscle with the upmost intensity. There is no such thing as a muscle that doesn't get sore, just a person not willing to work hard enough to do it. Calves not growing? Trying working them out for an hour like you work your chest, then we'll talk.
My training consists of a 6 day split.
- Back (Lats and Low Back), Biceps, Forearms
- Chest (Upper/Outer), Front Delts, Triceps
- Hamstrings, Glutes, Quadriceps
- Calves, Shins, Abs
- Traps, Upper Back (Shoulder Blades and Up), Rear/Mid Delts
- Chest (Lower/Inner)
Constantly change how you attack your muscles: different machines, cables, bands, dumbbells, barbells, body weight. There is no reason why you should ever plateau.
Reps should be deliberate and isolate the muscles that you desire to work. If you are wanting to work hamstrings, don't let your quads and back do the work. The mind is always in the muscle and the muscle should always be hyper aware.
6 to 12 reps, 3 to 5 sets, depending on how many exercises I am trying to get in. Most reps are done at a pace of 2 seconds concentric, 4 seconds eccentric. This pace forces the most muscle fibers to work and lowers the strain on the connective tissues and joints. I also beleive that in time this will further develop the muscle belly, giving a more rounded and aesthetic look: this could be debated because of genetics.
When it comes down to it, I beleive in hard work, discipline and training smart. Figure out what works for your body and then hammer it home. Be humble and not afraid to use whatever weight is necessary to accomplish your goals. You will never be the strongest man on the planet, but you can be the most deliberate and skilled at developing your own body.
The key to success: Humility and Sacrifice
