Do this all-over strength training exercise 2– 3 times each week, leaving at least a day's rest in between.
Each move is a "compound" exercise, which means it focuses on different muscle groups, so you get a huge value for your strength-training! Rest for 30– 60 seconds after each set.

This program is designed to improve your physique—after all, it's called "The Bodybuilding Physique"
To achieve this, you're going to think outside the same-old bodybuilding split, and you're going to do some new movements—and new versions of classic ones. Open your mind and have trust for now, and after a few weeks, it'll all make perfect sense.
Here's what you need to know to start the journey to your Bodybuilding Physique!
THE PILLARS OF THE Bodybuilding Physique
The preparation in this program is intended to maximize eight fundamental qualities that I believe exemplify the bodybuilding physique,
- Muscularity (or mass)
- Definition (or leanness)
- Overall athleticism
Despite what some people will tell you, none of these is more important than the other. They all feed into each other, and if you want to be both strong and capable, you need all of them.
The reps, sets, and weights will strengthen over the course of eight weeks, but the basic split won't. Here's what you'll be doing:
Day 1: Upper body and cardio
Day 2: Legs
Day 3: Active rest
Day 4: Abs and cardio
Day 5: Upper body and cardio
Day 6: Legs and plyos
Day 7: Rest
Every week starts with overwhelming compound strength movements like the lose-grip bench press and squats. You will make them considerably more troublesome by performing, the 1-1/4 rep. This is the place you lower down to the bottom, come up only a fourth of the way, and afterward go down again before coming up. It's a straightforward thought, yet it's ruthlessly hard, so you'll be happy you had a rest day in advance.
Every day will likewise incorporate some hypertrophy preparing. This is the place you'll work to get more muscularYou'll up the rep beat, leave the rest time, and hit each set with however much power as could be expected. You'll experience supersets, trisets, and even giant sets before resting.
On the off chance that the giant sets require you to hold on to too many pieces of equipment—hey, it happens—here are some options to get the same training effect:
Perform two supersets rather than one four-development giant set.
Search for reasonable substitutes that utilizes a similar plane or movement (for instance, dumbbells set up of machines or the other way around).
Perform straight sets, yet keep your pace high and your rest periods short.
Toward the finish of each training session, you normally have some type of cardio, regardless of whether it's high intensity or simply walking on the treadmill.
On that active-rest day, take the time to do something you enjoy. Whatever you do, try not to spend it in the gym with weights.
This training program is different than anything else out there, because it hits on all these different training styles. You're going to be burning a ton of calories doing things like HIIT cardio on top of hypertrophy and strength training.
