Overview

The world of science is important to muscle building. After all, what researchers discover in the lab allows you to know what works best. So what happens when you take the best from science and pair it with the smartest fitness minds? The result is this workout, which combines some of the most effective exercises in science and programs them into a workout guarantee to give you maximum results.

How to do this Workout

Perform this workout three days a week, resting at least a day between each session. So you might go on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Do two sets of 6-12 reps for each exercise. Rest 60-90 seconds in between sets and alternate between lower body and upper body pairs.

When you see a number with a letter next to it-such as 1A and 1B-it means the exercises should be performed as a group. Do one set of the first exercise, rest for the prescribed amount of time, and then do one set of the next exercise in the group. Repeat until you've completed all of your sets for each exercise, and then move on to the next group.

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.

Superset : Two moves done consecutively (like a circuit) with no rests in between.
