The Lazy Lifter's Workout

Why only 3 days per week? Apart from having a fun life outside the gym, what I've found out with a 3-day weekly training program is that it allows for optimal muscle recovery and Central Nervous System(CNS) recovery. When we do a workout, we're not only stressing the muscle groups that we're training, but the whole system, especially the CNS. Our CNS is the one that gets the most beating when pushing through a tough rep of a given set. This is the fatigue feeling that you feel the day after your grueling workout session. So what will happen when you train many days in a row? Worst case scenario is you may hamper the recovery process -- both the muscles and the CNS -- and will delay the adaptation of the muscle tissues. Sure it might not be that bad a couple of days straight without rest (if your recovery allows it), but as you progress through your workout, the increasing demands of the progressively increasing intensity of the workouts will take a toll on your recovery ability, and soon you will find yourself hitting a plateau more frequently. So rather than worrying about the low workout frequency/volume of this workout routine, what you should be concerned about is the application of the most important principle in any workout program -- the principle of progressive overload. This principle states that in order for a muscle to grow in strength and size, the human body must be forced to adapt to a tension that is above and beyond what it has previously experienced. And what other way would you measure your progression aside from increasing either reps or weight? Remember, if you're not getting stronger, you won't get bigger. And the optimal frequency for balancing life + fun in and out of the gym is 3 days a week. It allows ample time for recovery and growth. If you're training hard enough and you're noticing strength gains each workout, then there would be no reason for you to do gazillion of sets each workout. Now, of course, there are exceptions to this rule and so many factors are involved that I will further discuss in the future. If you want to learn more about working out 3 days per week, check this article that I wrote. So without further ado, here is my personal workout program that I've been doing for years now. I suggest you all try this out for 3 months as it is written. Don't make judgments, assumptions, and conclusions until you've gone through the whole 3 months of doing it.

“Where’s my cardio?!” Putting Cardio into Perspective After seeing the workout routine that involves lifting weights, I know you some of you are asking now… “Where the hell is my cardio?! How can I lose weight without that?!” Relax. Whether you choose to do cardio or not, it’s really up to you. But I’m telling you now, it is not a requirement for weight loss. You see, many people do cardio exercises without really knowing why and how it helps us with our fitness goals. They do it because they see a lot of people do it. This causes a lot of wasted time, effort, and resources that should’ve been used in strengthening and building muscles. Remember? Building muscle will make it easier for you to lose fat, and you can abandon cardio if you don’t want it. But how can I lose weight without doing cardio? Simple. By monitoring your caloric intake and eating less, which I will be teaching you later on. And what’s the purpose of doing cardio then? I was told I must do it! Shouldn’t I? First, before deciding whether to do cardio or not, it’s important to know first what your goal is. Is it to burn more calories? To condition your heart? What is it exactly? To help you with that, let me clarify a few things regarding cardio: -

Cardio doesn’t burn fat. It burns calories. It’s the caloric deficit (Nutrition Section of this ebook) that makes you lose weight, not cardio itself. This means that cardio is just a tool to help you lessen your calorie intake. If you can create a caloric deficit with the help of cardio, then it serves its purpose well.

-

Cardio isn’t the one who will give you muscle definition or tone your body parts. Again, it’s the caloric deficit.

-

Cardio is good for your heart and overall health, but that doesn’t automatically mean you will lose weight when you do cardio.

Knowing the statements above will give you a hint that doing cardio isn’t necessary to lose weight. You can if you want, but it’s not necessary. In fact, most of the women I am teaching prefer not to do any cardio exercises even when their goal is to lose weight, and they do. Once you learn how to track calories and macros (which you will learn later on), you will realize that the role of cardio in the weight loss game is very little.

The Lazy Lifter's Workout

Let me give you an example: One cup of rice is around 200 calories, and for you to burn 200 calories, you have to jog for around 15-20 minutes at a moderate-intense pace. That’s only a cup of rice, viands are not included. Add a lot more rice and other stuff and you’ll get to 600-800 calories, which will require you to jog for more than an hour just to reach a point of breakeven — where gain and loss will not happen. What if you just limit your food intake and avoid eating those 600-800 calories? Would you still need to do any cardio? The answer is no. You can do cardio of course, but you won’t be needing it to lose more weight because you’ve already taken care of that through your food intake. This is why I rarely do any cardio sessions, except for a recreational jog or basketball, or maybe a 5-10-minute treadmill warm up. That’s it. Cardio suggestions: If your goal is to lose fat and want an extra boost, then I would recommend doing cardio two-three times a week on your off days. If you’re a skinny gal or someone who’s trying to gain weight, then I would recommend staying away from it, unless you know what you are doing. And if you’re an average gal who just wants to get fit and improve her heart health, then two-three times a week would also be enough. How to do it: ◉ No more than 30-40 minutes of steady-state, low intensity cardio two-three times a week on your off days. Fasted or not, it’s up to you. Or ◉ Or if conditioning and stamina is your worry, do a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) for 20-30 minutes max, two-three times a week on your off days. Take note, HIIT affects recovery so beware. When choosing between the two, I'd go for steady state, low intensity cardio. I’d only recommend HIIT for those athletes who need conditioning work.

How to Set Up Your Nutrition Plan Based on Your Goals Do you want to lose weight or gain weight? Answering this question is simple and straightforward, but really the big question is — how? This is what this section is about. The workout routine above will do the job, but it’s only 50% of the equation. Focusing on it alone will only get you so far, and that is why I made this simple nutrition guide so you can maximize results in this 3-month journey of yours. Aren’t you excited about that? Let’s get started. First, we need to determine our TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure). This is our individual metabolism taking into account our lifestyle. It is important to determine this number because this will serve as our baseline for our caloric intake. Simply put, our TDEE is our maintenance level of calories. To calculate the TDEE, we need to know our BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) first using a well-known formula that I will show below.

How to Calculate Your BMR (Harris-Benedict Formula) To do this using a calculator, I would recommend using this link. To do this manually, use this calculation: Men (kg): BMR = 88 + (13.4 x weight in kilos) + (4.8 x height in cm) – (5.7 x age in years) Men (lbs:) BMR = 88 + (6.1 x weight in lbs) + (12.2 x height in inches) – (5.7 x age in years)

Using myself an example: I’m 5’10” (177.8cm), and I weigh 75kg (165lbs) To calculate my BMR using the above formula, I will use the (kg) method. BMR = 88 + (13.4 x 75[my weight in kg]) + (4.8 x 177.8[my height in cm]) - (5.7 x 27[my age])

The Lazy Lifter's Workout

15 tips to get the most out of this workout program: 1. Remember the most important principle — progressive overload. If you’re increasing strength each and every workout, you WILL grow. So strive to get better each and every workout by adding reps or weight. Example:

2. Log every workout. Record the weight, sets, reps, and the rest between sets. Example: Bench press - 100lbs - 6, 6, 5(reps) - 2 mins rest Do this on every exercise.

3. Pick a weight heavy enough to complete the rep ranges. If you can go over 10 reps for bench press, you need to increase the weight. Let's say last workout you did 6 reps on the Bench Press, your goal next workout is to increase the reps, and do 7 or 8 reps. You should be able to reach 10 reps first for all the prescribed sets before adding weight to the bar.

4. When you're adding weight, better go slow than get disappointed. Usually a 5lb increase on the main lifts should be enough, and sometimes, it might be too much. Don't worry, just keep the new weight and get stronger on that.

The Lazy Lifter's Workout

5. Learn how to do the exercises properly. YouTube is your friend.

6. Don’t skip Squats and Deadlift for God’s sake. Doing them increases your mass overall. Don’t want that?

7. Don't try to add sets and exercises until you've completed the full 6 weeks without hitting a plateau.

8. More is not always better. Adding exercises will just take a toll on your recovery and will slow down your progress.

9. For the abs and calves, just pick 2 exercises and alternate them each workout. Record them as well.

10. Learn how to track your calories using MyFitnessPal. Not doing so will keep your wheels spinning and you will have a hard time achieving your goal.

11. Keep your protein high. It should be around or close to 1g per pound of your body weight.

12. Faster weight gain will give you a lot of fat gain as well. Faster weight loss will risk muscle loss. Better go slow on both or you will shortchange yourself.

13. On your off days, you can do your cardio sessions or play your favorite sports.

14. Don't worry about adding size too soon. Most often, strength gains precede size gains. As long as you're getting stronger, size will surely follow.

15. Take a BEFORE photo before starting this program. You will thank yourself later.

Frequently Asked Questions What’s the difference between this workout program and the ____ workout program? The difference is the approach, obviously. I don’t teach people bodybuilding, 5-6 days a week style of training. I also don’t teach much about hard work, deprivation, sacrifice, and restriction. I value having fun, training smart, and blending fitness into your lifestyle. If you want to train 5-6 days a week, if you want to eat chicken breast and broccoli for straight months, and if you want to deprive yourself of alcohol and partying, then this program might not be for you.

Can I use this workout program if I want to lose weight? Yes. People have used this program to lose over 20 pounds without doing any cardio. I also used the same workout routine to lose around 10-20lbs of fat. Check this link to see people’s transformations Losing weight is all about calories, which we have tackled above. You can also heck my article on that.

How do I get rid of my belly fat? I’m doing hundreds of situps and nothing’s happening. Sad news is that you can’t spot reduce a specific body part by doing specific exercises. The only way to get rid of those fat on your *insert body part* is to lose fat overall. Or liposuction.

Is eating too much protein bad for me? Is whey protein bad? No. The claim “high protein diets are bad for the kidneys” is a myth. See this article and my article. If you’re still not sure, just search “high protein diets kidney myth” on Google.

Can I substitute dumbbells for other barbell exercises? Yes.

Can I substitute other exercise that targets the same muscle group? Yes. But I didn’t pick these exercises at random. They are the time-tested, all-around, most effective exercises for over a century now. If for any reason you still want to substitute them, feel free to pick one on this list: Chest: Flat Dumbbell Press Incline Bench Press Hammer Strength Chest Press

Shoulder: Dumbbell Shoulder Press Arnold Press Barbell Upright Row

Back: Sumo Deadlift (substitute for deadlift) 1 Arm Dumbbell Row Machine Row

Triceps: Skull Crushers Dumbbell Overhead Tricep Extension

2016 - www.TheLazyLifter.com - All Rights Reserved

23

The Lazy Lifter's Workout

Biceps: Barbell Curl Alternating Dumbbell Curl

Legs: Front Squats Pistol Squats Stepping Lunges

Abs and Calves: Pick any Important: Pick an exercise and stick to it for at least 2 months. Remember, progressive resistance is the key to muscle growth, not exercise variety.

How long should I workout? As long as needed. Finish your workout and go home.

What supplements should I take? I’d recommend protein powders so you can hit your protein target for the day much easily. Other than that, there’s only a few that are helpful.

Ever since I started doing your workout routine, my muscles have gotten smaller and they’ve shrunk. Why is that? That’s because my workout program doesn’t focus on muscle pumps. It is low in volume and low in frequency. One possibility you may be experiencing is the decrease of lactate acid buildup inside the muscles that you usually get from high volume, high frequency training. Maybe you were doing a lot of pump training before so you feel like your muscles are getting big, but blood is just trapped inside them. By focusing on lower rep ranges, my workout program builds muscle mass by actually increasing the muscle fiber density(myofibril hypertrophy) and you can be assured that this kind of muscle growth should last even if you don’t workout for a while. 2016 - www.TheLazyLifter.com - All Rights Reserved

The Lazy Lifter's Workout

Your workout program is not working for me. Why is that? First, what do you mean by not working for you? Aren’t you gaining strength? Aren’t you progressing week by week? Few questions to ask yourself if this happens: Are you following the exact program outlined in this guide? Did you add extra exercises or sets? Do you log your workouts? Are you eating at least 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight? Are you making the necessary effort to increase your strength via weight, reps, or both? If you’re trying to lose weight, are you sure you’re doing it slowly and you’re not drastically reducing your total calories? If you’re bulking, are you getting 200-300 calories above your maintenance? These are the questions you may want to ask yourself if you notice that the program is not working for you. Because I’m telling you, there’s no way it’s not going to work for you if you do everything right. Can I workout for more than 3 days? Yes, of course. You can do whatever you want. It will be just difficult for me to troubleshoot anything in case you experience some issues. I designed this program for a reason, not just for the sake of spending less time in the gym and more time to party. Do what is written strictly for a couple of months before changing anything. Can I skip Deadlift and Squats? No. Squats and deadlift are crucial exercises for building strength and size. They do not only increase leg and back size, but your overall muscle frame. Doing them triggers the body’s anabolic response which will create an environment for faster fat loss and muscle growth. Don’t skip them. I see that your blog recommends IF to those who want to lose weight, but can’t do IF due to my schedule, is it a requirement? No. IF is just an eating strategy to let you eat a lot more in a single meal. Don’t force yourself to do it if you can’t.

The Lazy Lifter's Workout

The most important thing you can learn from IF is that you don’t have to follow any schedule when it comes to eating. You just eat whenever you want to eat, so long as you meet your calories and macros for that day.
