The Big-Muscle Workout


Some workouts are like the latest toy or gadget-they have so many bells and whistles that you're entertained by the new variety. On the other hand, you have plans that don't have a bunch of flashy extras, but they do have a big powerful engine that makes you feel good. This program is the big engine. Nothing special but a workout filled with the most effective moves for more mass.

How to do this Workout

Perform this workout 5 days per week, resting as needed. Don't ever perform the same workout on back-to-back days.

Complete the exercises as straight sets by performing all sets of a given exercise before moving on to the next. Make sure you rest as needed in between before moving on to the next.

Circuit : Do 1 set of each exercise in a group consecutively, without rests in between. Once  these exercises have been completed, repeat the circuit again - doing 1 set of each with no rests in between. Continue until prescribed number of total sets are performed

Strength : Complete all sets of an exercise at the same time with rests in between. Then move to the next exercise.
