WORKOUT PLANRecommended Program For You: Full Body Routine 3x Per WeekSince you’restill in your first year of consistent proper training, the fastest way for youto progress in the gym will be to follow a full body routine 3 times per week. This willmaximize progressive overload on all of the key compound lifts and produce the mostefficient results for you at your current stage.There are 2 different workouts you’ll be performing (workout A and workout B), andyou’ll simply alternate back and forth between them on any 3 non-consecutive days ofthe week. That means week one would consist of workout ABA, week two would beBAB, then repeat.You should also aim to include 2-3 cardio sessions throughout the week. These can bedone at any time as long asit isn’t immediately prior to weight training.Lowintensity/long duration, high intensity/short duration or medium intensity/mediumduration cardio are all acceptable forms and you can just choose based on preference.Cardio is not mandatory from a pure fat burning perspective (since this can technicallybe achieved through diet alone), but it’s still a good idea to include for the sake ofoverall physical/mental health and metabolic conditioning purposes.A few important notes about your workout plan…- All sets should be performed approximately 1-2 reps short of muscular failure. Thismeans that you should continue each set until the point where, if you were to give a100% all-out effort, you would only be able to complete 1-2 more reps in proper form.- Make sure to record every workout by writing down the weight lifted and number ofreps executed for each exercise and set throughout the session. Each time you enterthe gym, your central goal should be to improve upon your previous performance insome way. The most efficient way to do this is by following a “double progression”
