CHEST BUMP!!!! I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything. I recently was hired by the great institution of UC Berkeley as a strength coach!!!!!

This 3 day workout is a beast, I have had my personal training clients use it and they have made amazing strength and body changes in a 5 week span. It is set up as a Push, Pull, Leg day split, and setup with each week having a different emphasis. You go from A1 thru A3 without rest, at the end of A3 give yourself a 30 second break then back through it. At the end of the workout there is a “Metabolic Finisher“, followed by 8 minutes of cardio interval training. Add in two cardio/”get out of the house” days to each week and you’ll see even faster results!!!

    This looks like a great workout, but don’t forget that one of the keys to getting a lot bigger is a proper diet! Your body is like an engine, if you put terrible things into it, you’ll get terrible results!
