Why do you go to the gym day after day, week after week, split after split? Why bother? You like the results, of course, but you also like the challenge. Day after day, embracing new challenges, learning new skills, overcoming new obstacles—and loving it.
Or at least that's how it's supposed to be. Once you feel confident in your training, it's pretty easy to get comfortable. And if your training isn't exciting you, it probably need a Remix.
"That's what this is really about: challenging yourself, but having the time of your life," says Performix athlete Mike Vazquez, creator of the Ripped Remix program. "Never being bored. Always staying motivated."
If you've watched Mike's athlete profile or done any of his previous workouts on Bodybuilding.com, like the 400-Rep Juggernaut Workout, Abs Without Crunches, or the popular Ultimate Full-Body Workout, you know he doesn't see the gym—or training in general—like everyone else.
"I step into the gym, and it's like my personal playground. One day I'll be doing triple-clap push-ups, the next I'll be deadlifting as much as I can," he says. "You can do it all. You can still have gains. You can still have muscle mass. You can still have endurance and be an elite athlete and have fun at the same time."
Sound like the way you want to train? Then set aside the next month for Ripped Remix. Here's everything you need to know.
Ripped Remix: The Program
Unique results require a unique approach. So while everyone else is lining up at the bench for international chest day, you'll start the week off with a calisthenics-heavy full-body workout. The rest of the week might look a little more familiar.
- Day 1: Full body
- Day 2: Legs
- Day 3: Chest and Triceps
- Day 4: Rest
- Day 5: Back and Biceps
- Day 6: Shoulders and Hybrid Training
- Day 7: Rest
What is hybrid training, you ask? It's like cardio, only tougher and way more fun. You'll do some sled pushes, jumps, high-flying calisthenics, a little core work, and battle ropes—that last one should be no surprise if you follow Mike on Instagram. But whatever's on the menu, rest assured it will make you suck some wind.
Each workout should last around that sweet spot of an hour, but none of them will be easy. Even advanced lifters will encounter some moves they probably haven't tried before. (A broad jump leading into a triple-clap push-up, anyone?) But inexperience with the specifics doesn't mean you're unfit for the program.
Yes, Ripped Remix's program includes an intermediate to advanced-level workload, but you'll be doing so many push-ups, and so many types of them, that you may surprise yourself with the skills you can develop in just a month's time. If you've been focusing on "how much ya bench" maximum strength for a while, this may be just the thing you need to spur new growth.
What You'll Get When You Sign Up
Each day in Ripped Remix, you'll get a different video of Mike performing the day's workout. These videos look great on Bodybuilding.com or YouTube, but they look amazing in the Ripped Remix app for your smart phone or tablet, which is how we recommend following the program.
The app also offers the ability to track your progress. Besides, we've seen you with your phone in the gym anyway. Might as well do something good with it!
What's next? Mike has the answer. "Let's go grocery shopping, let's buy those supplements, let's download the app, and let's get started." You're just 28 days from a new definition of fitness. Remix your training, and remix your results.
