Chris Villa’s 6 Week Workout Plan

You are damn lazy. Even if you don’t know it, your body wants you to take the easy route. It’s why humans are so successful and decided to walk upright, because we’re geared towards saving energy. Fortunately, this routine is tailor made for tricking your muscles into growth.

You’ll avoiding doing the same exercises, reps and sets for each and every workout. This will shock your muscles into growing as long as you train at a high level if intensity and really push each set to positive failure, as if you’re struggling for that last rep.

When someone lifts weights, they create trauma within the muscle fiber by igniting micro tears. Once damage occurs, a cascade of cells become active. These cells bind to muscle cells in order to repair the damaged areas and help to synthesize contraction components. When these increase in cross-areas, you experience muscle growth. Essentially, you must remember the goal of training is to stimulate protein synthesis, but the key to building muscle is cellular repair, not damage.

You have to feel pain; you want it to hurt and, if it doesn’t hurt any more, that means you need to crank it up a notch. Try this routine to embrace the agony that’ll deliver the results you’ve always wanted.

 

Your muscle up plan starts here

Each body part is done individually except arms, which are done together. Be sure to take one or two minutes of rest between all sets.
