Free Body building Program to Pack On Muscle!


Below you'll find a free body building program you can use to structure your workouts around the basics of building lean muscle mass.

Unlike what you may read about in the muscle mags, you do not have to spend hours a day in the gym, seven days a week to get results.

In fact, this free body building program is going to give you results in the shortest amount possible. Any more than 2 to 3 hours a week spent on your workouts may be counter-productive.

The best results I've witnessed while in the personal training field come from 3-5 sessions a week with weights, less than an hour each session.

Most people like the Monday, Wednesday, Friday approach to their weight lifting routines.

The following free body building program is simple in it's approach, which is also why it's very effective.

If you want to skip the learner's curve and start doing the best muscle-building workout possible, check out the end of this page for info on advanced weight lifting programs.

Step 1. From the following muscle groups, pick two that you'll be working out on Day 1 of your weight lifting routines:

Chest
Back
Shoulders
Legs
Biceps
Triceps

Day 1 (Monday) of weight training _______ and ________

Day 2 (Wednesday) of weight training _________ and ________

Finally, day 3 will include the last two muscle groups.

Day 3 (Friday) _________ and ___________

There's your three day weight lifting routine.

Here's a sample week:

Monday: back & chest
Tuesday: cardio
Wednesday: legs & shoulders
Thursday : cardio
Friday: biceps & triceps
Saturday & Sunday Off

Step 2. Depending on which muscle groups you're training, pick 2 exercises for each muscle group from among the following list.

Chest

There is your basic outline of this free body building program. You only need to do 2-3 exercises per muscle group in your weight lifting routines.

Doing 2 exercises with intensity and focus is better than doing 3-4 with little or no intensity.
