What’s the BEST Workout?

The BEST Workout Program…

Just think about it, if you knew the “Best Workout Routine” to follow you could skip all the BAD workouts, and only do the BEST Workouts.

This would prevent you from wasting your precious time and speed up the whole muscle building process… Right?

WRONG! You see it’s not quite as simple as that because there really is no such a thing as the “Best Workout Routine”.

There are so many variables involved that what could be a good workout for one person, may not be a good workout for another person. For example, let’s compare a teenager who just started lifting weights and a 30 year old bodybuilder who has been weight training for 10 years and is getting ready for a bodybuilding competition. Do you think they are both going to follow the exact same workout program? Of course not!

The BEST Workout Program Doesn’t Exist…

The so called Best Workout for a beginner, would not fit the needs of a competitive bodybuilder (and vice versa). In addition to that, your body is constantly changing. The workout routine that may have worked for you in the past will probably not be beneficial to you in 6 months or a years time because your body will have grown bigger, stronger, and your work capacity and recovery abilities will have changed.

So rather than wasting your time looking for the “Best Workout Routine”. Just pick a workout that fits your current situation, your exercise equipment availability, your schedule, etc. and take Nike’s advice and “Just Do It!”

The program doesn’t have to be perfect, all that really matters is that you make progress. Each week strive to do a little better than you did the week before, either by adding 5 pounds to the bar, doing an extra rep per set, or increasing the volume of sets, reducing the rest periods between sets, etc.

Incorporate some form of progressive overload on a weekly basis. While it may not seem like much at first, making little bits of progress like this will add up over time. And before you know it you’ll have made some BIG improvements in strength and muscle gains.

However, you need to realize that no workout program will keep working forever. Your body will eventually adapt and plateau to every single workout program that you follow, it’s just a matter of time. When this happens to you, don’t freak out because it’s normal and happens to everyone. No one can follow the same workout routine forever and make non-stop progress. Everyone from beginners to top level pro bodybuilders will eventually hit a plateau and their progress will come to a screeching halt.

When this happens you need to change things up. Do a different workout program, different exercises, different set and rep pattern, etc. Do something that your body is not used to in order to provide unique muscle stimulation that will start the growing process all over again.

Adapt – Grow – Plateau & Repeat…

Eventually you’ll plateau to this “new” workout routine, and you’ll have to start the process all over again. We are always going to be in the process of starting a workout program, growing, adapting, and plateauing to that workout program – then repeating the process all over again. This process is the secret to making continuous progress over the long term. You grow, adapt, plateau, change your approach, and repeat. Every single successful bodybuilder on the planet has gone through their own unique variation of this process.

Now you can try and figure this all out for yourself through tedious trial and error. But if you would like some help with the process of stacking complementary workout programs back to back for consistent muscle building progress I suggest you join the Total Fitness Bodybuilding “Inner Circle” Coaching Club. Because as a member of the “Inner Circle” you’ll get access to the brand new Workout Of The Month Program. WOTM-blue-300

This takes all the confusion and guess work out of selecting new training programs to follow because each month you’ll get a new program that builds on the progress that you made from the previous months program.
