Here you go, an intermediate volume training: you should only undertake it if all conditions of recovery are met, including proper diet and enough rest. Increase load set by set: this way, the number of reps will drop, you can take it for granted :)

This routine is split up as follows:

  1. Day : chest & back
  2. Day : shoulders & arms
  3. Day : legs
  4. Day : rest
  5. Day : chest & back
  6. Day : shoulders & legs
  7. Day : rest

Now let’s see the workout routine. Abs and calves are optional: based on your own discretion and masochism!
