Bodybuilding Workout Routines

In this section, I share several bodybuilding workout routines, and which will be regularly updated to include more workout routines.

But before we continue, I implore you to understand how the muscle growth formula works and the principles behind muscle building.

Why? Because these are your basics, and will guide you towards choosing an appropriate workout routine for your level. With these knowledge, you will know how to adjust your routines accordingly as well.

But most importantly, do not follow workout routines blindly.

Bodybuilding Workout Routines

There are currently 4 bodybuilding workout routines here from which you can choose the most appropriate one for you.

I don’t spam workout routines on my site, because I only pick the ones which are based on principles I believe in and which work for ectomorphs.

I also do not want to confuse the heck out of you guys by posting so many workout routines that you do not know which to choose from.

However, I’m always on the lookout for better workout routines and will hence update this section regularly!

    I’m not sure why but this web site is not loading too fast for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

      Speed shouldn’t be an issue already? I have changed the theme and made some modifications already. Thx for the feedback!

    Hey Wayne put up the workout safety videos soon! I got bad shoulders/rotator cuffs so I’m afraid I might aggravate it. Thanks!

      ok will upload soon!

      Quick tips: don’t do lat pull downs behind your back and be careful of upright rows they can hurt your shoulders easily.

      And do you bench? I’m quite sure you do right? If you find that the bench weight is too heavy for you you might want to train up your shoulders first as benching heavy can easily hurt your shoulder rotator cuffs badly. Good luck!

    • Wayne

      I would say start with the beginner workout routine, because since you have stopped for 3-4 months, that routine can still work pretty well.
