Description

This 4 day upper/lower split workout is designed to build muscle by varying the rep ranges ever 3 weeks within the rep range that is optimal for muscle growth (6-12 reps). The rep range schedule breaks down like this:


  • Weeks 1-3: 6 Reps
  • Weeks 4-6: 8 Reps
  • Weeks 7-9: 10 Reps
  • Weeks 10-12: 12 Reps

As you can see, every 3 weeks you just add 2 reps to the rep goal of each exercise. to ensure we get huge with this workout program, every three weeks you’ll add 2 reps to each set of each exercise, which will provide the stimulus for your muscles to keep growing.
