With this workout, you work each muscle group 2 times in a week. This workout has been awesome for me. I've made fantastic gains. Remember to lift heavy, eat smart and get plenty of sleep.

Do this for 8 weeks than take a week off, make sure your workouts are under a hour. add weight in 5 lbs increments for each set, your last rep of each set should be very hard to do, if not add ore weight until you reach failure on the last rep of each set.

Try different exercises but work each muscle twice a week for 8 weeks.
