Yes. Totally body transformation. Awesome results after the 3rd week. Just believe in the workout. The only think that I did, was in the 5th day, that suppose to be just abbs, I add cardio workouts before doing the abbs. But the rest you dont have to change. Maybe add more exercises, but is up to you.
I am considering this workout plan. But I was wondering, when are we supposed to do these exercises, on which days? Let's say I start DAY 1 FULL BODY on Monday, how should I plan other 3 days?
Tuesday, Thursday, Friday?
Or Wednesday, Friday, Sunday?
It tells you in the video. Workout Mon and tues off Wednesday, workout Thursday and Friday. Just download the calendar on your phone.
I have been doing workout 1 on mon, workout 2 on tue, workout 4 on thu and work 5 on fri, i also do cardio on the other days and i do normal wide grip pull ups on wednesdays.
As julien said this may not be the best program for putting on muscle but if you a body that looks good,has low fat and is functional for real life activities/work I think a lot better then your traditional bodybuilding workout.
Another thing which some people may not know is he says perform 10 or 20 reps on most exercises but he does not go into detail about what sought of intensity you should do the reps, I think performing the sets to about 80% is optimal, if you go all out and train each set to 100% failure you will probably get injured and decrease muscle gains.
Similar to the guy below me, I'm an athlete who has played elite level hockey my entire life. I've just finishing my 2nd week of this and holy $#!@. First day I could barely complete 3 circuits and came very close to vomiting on the gym floor.
The first day is like a shock to your system, they are not all as intense as the first day, but they come close.
In two weeks I've lost 5 lbs and body fat has gone down almost 2 % from where it was.
Don't get discouraged if you're only able to do one or two of the circuits and not the five he calls for. Keep at it, dig down and this will transform you. I've been exercising and lifting for a large portion of my adult life and I have not had my lunges burn this hard in a long time.
On the third day, I usually did a 4-6 mile run, or some yoga or some type of HIIT cardio. As well as on the second day (I found I was done in under 45) I would add in some other stuff, back, bicep curls, something that I didn't think got worked hard enough that week.
Off to do the ab circuit right now.
