If you're tired of the same old split and the same old results, you're definitely in the right place. Mike Vasquez is a one-of-a-kind athlete. So, you'd better believe his trainer will test you in completely new ways. It's time to remix your workout.

Each week will combine full-body training, body-part splits, and hybrid workouts that will teach you new skills and challenge your athleticism. You'll do high-volume straight sets of bread-and-butter bodybuilding moves, pump-inducing supersets, and seriously tough circuits. Each style of training will help you build muscle, burn fat, and enhance your performance.

Some of the movements in the Ripped Remix trainer may be unfamiliar and difficult. Don't be discouraged. We've provided step-by-step guides to each exercise. If you really can't perform an exercise as prescribed, then feel free to substitute with an easier alternative. Can't handle the volume? Dial it back, but not too much.

Handstand push-ups are probably the most difficult movement you'll encounter today. To do them, kick up into a handstand against the wall. (You may want to put a pad of some sort under your head.) Lower yourself down as far as is comfortable, and then press back up, all the while staying upside down. If you're completely uncomfortable with being upside down, put your feet or knees on a box with your legs at 90 degrees. Position yourself so your hips are over your shoulders.
