Plug It In, Plug It In

Q: “Thanks for the workout on for LEO’s. Are the first 2 weeks a 4 day workout? You listed 4 workouts: should they be rotated on a daily basis?”


My Answer: Yep, you rotate through all 4 workouts throughout the week. Go from Week 2 straight to Week 4. There is no Week 3.


Q: “Hi there James! My name is Henry, and I am your classic hardgainer. I’ve been following the 10-8-6-15 routine, and it is finally time for a new one. I’ve been reading on your site about the 5×5 routine with a two day split, and it looks like what I need, but can you elaborate on that training regimen, say providing a sample week? Your articles are great as always James and any help at all is appreciated, Thanks!”

My Answer: The 5×5 program is pretty straightforward, Jacob. Plug in your exercises to these parameters: 5 sets of 5 reps with 90 seconds of rest between sets. Choose one exercise per body part. Follow a 2 day split, hitting each muscle group twice a week.
