Description

This 4 day workout is inspired by Robert Downey Jr's preparation program for the iron man films. In preparation for his role, Downey had to pack on muscle quick, and to do this he utilized compound lifts 4 times a week that covered the major muscle groups in his body. An upper/lower/upper/lower split ensures each muscle group is hit twice a week, inciting maximum muscle growth while still leaving 3 days for recovery. Marvel fans and beginner lifters should definitely give this routine a shot.
