6 Day Workout Routine

by admin on 11:53 PM

6 day workout routine 6 Day Workout RoutineThis 6 day workout routine is extremely balanced and includes all aspects of a balanced workout plan. It includes a hypertrophy, endurance, and strength phases. Since the workouts in this 6 day workout plan are constantly being mixed up, your body will not be able to adapt to your workouts, and if combined with a sufficient diet plan, will allow for great results. This 6 day exercise regimen will allow you to gain size during one phase, lose weight and gain endurance during another, and gain strength during the other. It consists of 4 phases of workouts. I included some rest days because it is very important to give your body rest to recover. Your body grows while resting so it is imperative that you don’t work out on rest days. Make sure throughout this workout routine to feel your body. This 6 day lifting program is very challenging and will push your body to the limit. If you feel like you cannot complete a workout and you need a break, take it! It is very important to listen to what your body is telling you. It will let you know when enough is enough. If you feel like you cannot complete the workout or that you need to take a short break, take it! Take a break during the workout and then continue or just call it a day, rest, and come back the next day ready to work hard again. If a particular exercise is too challenging and/or causes pain, eliminate it from the program. Feel free to email us at phenom.fitness.and.health@gmail.com and we’ll give you an alternate exercise to perform that may be a better option for this 6 day workout routine.

Make sure to keep hydrated at all times. Carry a gallon of water with you wherever you go and drink constantly throughout the day.

Attached to all of the exercises in this workout routine is either a workout clip or a detailed description of how to do the exercise. For exercises that are repeated throughout this 6 day workout routine, refer to a previous workout to see that specific exercise’s workout clip or description.

On all the exercises I included repetitions and amount of sets. However, I did not include the amount of weight. I have no idea what weight you are capable of weight lifting so as you go to the gym figure out what weight works best for you for each exercise. When the workout description says to do 15 reps, this means that you choose a weight that you can complete only 15 reps. Therefore, if you choose a weight and as you’re completing your 15th rep, you realize that you can probably do 5 additional reps, the weight you are using is not heavy enough. Choose a heavier weight that allow you to only complete 15 reps. The same goes the other way as well. If you choose a weight that allows you to complete only 10 reps, choose a lighter weight. Record all of your weights and reps in a journal. This will allow you to challenge yourself to improve, to see your progression, and to know what weight to choose for each exercise the next time you work out without having to think about it.

When working out make sure to use good form on all the exercises. Use slow, controlled movements and pay attention to detail in the exercise descriptions of this 6 day workout routine and workout clips to avoid any possibility of injury.

If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to email us and we will be more than happy to answer any questions.
