5 Day Workout to Lose Fat and Gain Lean Muscle
by Ben Legg
I have been training for a fairly long time now (4 years) and have been through so many different workout routines it's ridiculous.
Before I share with you my workout which I use all the time, I would like you to research YOUR body type!
There is 3 different kinds of body, Endomorph (tend to be overweight and very large bone structure), Ectomorph (flat chest, skinny, high metabolism) and Mesomorph ('The Gifted Ones', athletic physique, gain muscle easily and are naturally strong).
Once you workout your body type THEN you will have complete success building muscle.
This is aimed at Mesomorph and Endomorph mainly. Ectomorphs can use this Routine but cardio needs to be kept to a minimal.
Monday: Chest, abs and 20-30 minute HIIT Cardio (High Intensity Interval Training)
Wednesday: Legs, Abs and 20-30 minute HIIT Cardio
Thursday: Shoulders and Traps
Friday: Biceps, Triceps, Forearms, Abs and 20-30 minute HIIT Cardio
Saturday and Sunday: Rest!
HIIT Cardio is the best cardio for losing fat and gaining muscle because even after you've finished you're still burning calories!
5/6 Exercises per muscle group
Sets: 3-4 per exercise
Muscle Shock: Incorporate Drop Sets, Burn Sets and Super sets
