The Five-Day Body


How often does it take to get the body you want? Many people have tried to provide formulas and timelines for success. The reality is it will take as long as your body needs. So while we can't give you a number of days before you are beach-body ready, we can tell you that training five days a week can create some amazing results. This program provides the right dose for maximum results. Stick with it, and in time you'll see what you want.

How to do this Workout

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

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