For the past year I’ve been in the process of bulking/maintaining a steady 220lbs. Until recently, I thought that I had great size despite having a bit of a gut (a typical result from bulking). However, I was recently told that as a 23 year old I shouldn’t have a gut because maintaining abs and losing your gut is a lot harder when you get into your 30s and 40s.
Thus, I made it my mission to change my routine, diet and lifestyle in an attempt to lean out and get that washboard stomach.
In this installment, I’ll be sharing my workout routine and in later posts I’ll provide updates to said workout.
- Body Weight Squats: 2 Sets of 15-20 Reps.
- Barbell Squats: 16 Sets of 12, 12, 12, 12, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 8, 8, 6, 6, 6, 6.
- 135lbs x 2
- 140lbs x 2
- 145lbs x 2
- 150lbs x 2
- 155lbs x 2
- 160lbs x 2
- 165lbs x 2
- 170lbs x 2
- Romanian Deadlift: 6 Sets of 10-12 Reps.
The philosophy of this workout as will be seem with the rest of my routine is high volume.
I find that I get the most out of myself when I’m in the gym for long periods of time and just killing it.
