6 Weeks Heavy Lifts Plan

FULL GYM
45 MINS
4 PER WEEK
STRENGTH

OVERVIEW

Building strength and a good framework for your physicial workouts is essential to muscle growth and staying lean. In this plan, we will use heavy compound movements to build a solid workout routine that is essential to beginners and advanced trainers alike.This minimal training style should be your anchor program if you are new to resistance training.

WEEKLY BREAKDOWN

COMPOUND DAYS

Your workout will have two compound days per week during which you will focus on specific compound movements that you will progressively increase in weight as you gain more strength. These movements will not only help you get stronger but will help you gauge your increase in strength over time. Focus on quality and proper form rather than weight.

 

CIRCUIT DAY

Circuit days will contain exercises that isolate muscle groups and help you form a better mind-muscle connection that will come together when you perform your compound movements. Focus understanding your body and where the tensions lie. These will help you explore your muscle groups on detail and strenghthen them individually.

 

REST DAYS

You will have 3 Rest Days per week. These rest days will allow you to recover and grow so that next time you lift weights, you will feel stronger. You can use this time to relax or take part in other extracurricular activities that don't require lots of physical exertion.

ACTIVE REST DAY

On active rest days, you can spend 15-20 minutes doing an activity that provides you with mild stimulation and is lightly intense for the body. This could include a jogging or running session, playing light sports, cycling, hiking or anything that isn't too demanding for the muscles but keeps you moving. The goal is to move, find fun and stay active, not to over exert.

WEEK 1

OVERVIEW

Welcome to your first day! The name of the game is proper form and movement so will want to focus on that before you try lifting heavy weights. If, with proper form, you can lift more than the rep range, you can increase the weight. If, with proper form, you aren't able to lift within the rep range, you will want to decrease the weight you are using. Stick to this rule of thumb and progress accordingly. Learn the movements before you engage them, including the workouts in the circuit days.
