#he $oals of this Workout% &' Workout 3 times per !eek. (' ) e*ercises ma*imum each e*ercise session. 3' +rop body fat !ith diet alone...no cardio for 3 months I lo"e cardio for getting ultra,lean- but also like the idea of taking a break from it e"ery so often. ...then add back in strategic cardio to go from lean to ultra, lean in a matter of (,. months. #his is e*actly !hat I'm doing until /anuary and I figure I should share it !ith you.

The Minimalist Diet

#his routine 1ust takes .) minutes 4or less' Mon- Wed- and Fri. I'm dropping all forms of cardio for 3 months. 5es...you heard it right no cardio6 I lo"e to use cardio as a tool to get ultra,lean- but !e are going minimal here. I !ill drop a bit of body fat at a slo! pace !ith a 2dialed in3 diet.

Why am I sho!ing you a plate of nachos7 My definition of 2dialed in diet3...is all about portion control and calories. It is fine to eat nachos if you maintain a !eekly calorie deficit. Read more about my dieting approach here% 8ybrid +ieting

9ince I'm not using strategic cardio to burn a bunch of calories throughout the !eek- I need to reduce the portion si:e of a lot of meals that I eat. (,. months of strategic cardio !ill be added back in leading up to summer. I !ill probably do cardio after that as !ell...as it gi"es me a little more 2!iggle room3 !ith the diet. For me the biggest differences in diet7 ; & drink limit...!hen coming home from !ork. ; smaller plate of food for dinner. <o late night snacks 4e*cept for maybe Fri and 9at night'. an't finish my girlfriend's plate !hen going out to eat. <o hardcore calorie counting or anything like that. /ust eat less and measure the results each !eek. 9ince I'"e trained for years and I'm mainly 1ust maintaining muscle- the scale !ill gi"e me an accurate idea of !hether I'm gaining or losing fat. For those of you trying to gain muscle- you may !ant to take skin fold measurements- but that isn't completely necessary. 8ere's the actual !orkout...

The Minimalist Workout

I !ant to keep this simple and easy to remember. I !ill e*plain !hy I ha"e set it up the !ay I ha"e...but feel free to t!eak for your specific needs. Monday% Friday% hest- Back- =egs hest- Backal"es

Wednesday% 9houlders- Biceps- #riceps- ;bs

Why only once per !eek for 9houlders- Biceps- and #riceps7 #hese muscles are indirectly getting !orked hard on on the t!o hest and Back days. 9o in reality they are getting !orked 3 times per !eek. In fact...e"en on their training day- I'm going to suggest you keep it to one e*ercise instead of t!o. Why only one day per !eek for abs7 >nce you de"elop good abs- you can maintain off of minimal direct ab !ork. Routines outlined in my free report- ;bs Blueprint...aren't necessarily meant to be used for a lifetime. 5ou can back off on abs for part of the year- to sa"e time and energy for muscles that re?uire more attention. #hen add back more ab !ork the 3,. months before summer.
Minimalist Workout 6 by Rusty Moore

My approach- and thoughts- about leg training I'm satisfied !ith the si:e of my legs- so I do "ery little direct leg training throughout the year. I rely on specific types of inter"al cardio to keep the legs dense and athletic.

...but since I am not including cardio in this routine- I'm going to need to include at least a fe! sets of direct leg training. If you !ant to add leg mass7 #ake ?uality creatine and do ),@ sets of s?uats to failure on both Monday and Friday. Want to a"oid adding si:e to your legs7

/ust !ork legs on Monday and do .,) sets of ) reps 4short of failure'. I prefer partial deadlifts done short of failure. I ha"e a post !ith "ideos about that here.

Ase Byramid 9ets 4or Re"erse Byramid' to gain muscle I'm a .CD year old guy- so I like to use pyramid sets to gi"e my 1oints a break. I fatigue my muscles by doing the higher rep sets first and don't need to lift as hea"y in the later sets. When should you use re"erse pyramids7 #he ad"antage of using re"erse pyramids is that you !ill gain !hen you are fresh and the lighter !eights after. Ase these
