Build More Muscle and Get Stronger with My 12 Week Weight Training Program

build muscle and get strongerLike that Robert Tepper song in the movie Rocky IV, ‘There’s No Easy Way Out, There’s No Shortcut Home.

And that’s the truth. If you want to build muscle and get stronger, there’s no easy way to do it. There are not short cuts in the gym.

The answer’s simple, but it’s a tough one that most people don’t wanna hear. You have to get your ass in the gym and lift those weights if you want to build muscle and get stronger.

Ronnie Coleman said it best ‘Everybody wants to be a bodybuilder but nobody wants to lift no heavy-ass weights.’

That’s exactly what my 12 week weight training program is all about. Lifting heavy weights to build muscle and get stronger.

The secret to my workout program is I have you making subtle changes in the gym every two weeks while sticking to your core mass building lifts.

My Top 3 Muscle Building Supplements

Let’s face it, muscle building supplements are a huge (no pun intended) part of this game.

These are my Top 3 Supplements for now:

**The links below will take you to my review pages for each supplement. 


TestoFuel Lean Muscle Building Supplements

TestoFuel – TestoFuel is hands-down the most effective natural test booster on the market. It contains a combination of high quality ingredients like oyster extract, D-aspartic acid, everything that’s in the old school ZMA formula, Vitamin D, and more.

TestoFuel helps with lean muscle gains. There’s no water retention or bloating like most over the counter test boosters.

Animal Pak Lean Muscle Building SupplementsAnimal Pak – Okay, so Animal Pak may not be considered a muscle building supplement by many but I beg to differ.

This stuff provides your body with everything needed for essential vitamins and recovery. Bottom line is I feel and perform better when I’m taking it, and you’ll see it as part of most of my muscle building supplement stacks.

4 Gauge Pre Workout4 Gauge Preworkout Lean Muscle Building Supplements – This stuff is just plain awesome and one of the best pre workouts I’ve ever taken. It gives you the energy you need during your workouts to pump out more sets and reps, and you all know I’m a huge fan of high volume workouts.

4 Gauge Preworkout is one of the few one-scoop pre workouts. I’ve never had to take more than one serving and it always delivers.

**There are several other great muscle building supplements that I take, and I tend to alternate them to try new things. You can check out all of my supplement reviews here.


Welcome to TheMuscleProgram! I started this site in early 2010, which spawned from my passion for weight training.

This site is a collection of my workout plans and also include some nutrition guides and genuine supplement reviews. I also blog my personal workouts, so be sure to sign up!

Workouts, Nutrition Guides, & Supplement Reviews

I’d like to point out the three main areas of focus on my site: Weight Training, Nutrition, and Supplements. Weight training became one of my passions in my early years and has remained a priority in my life to this day. It’s something I enjoy and love to do. I also express the importance of nutrition as well as cover some supplements that can help support muscle growth.

Weight Training Workout Programs – My passion for working out and weight training is the reason I started I love the weights. I train at least five days a week in the early mornings. I feel strength training in general is the healthiest thing you can do. I have several workout programs that I’ve created as well as workouts by body part.

Nutrition Guides – At, I teach you to replace the evil word ‘diet‘ with nutrition. This is an imperative rule. I don’t believe in merely restricting calories. Rather, I believe in feeding your body the proper nutrition it needs to function, build muscle, and help your body perform optimally by utilizing calories for energy (aka: burn fat).

Supplement Reviews – I have several supplement reviews on These are genuine reviews, meaning I have taken every supplement thats reviewed on my site. I also promote a small list of products that you can’t buy in stores. Out of the hundreds of supplements I could promote, I have only chosen a select few simply because they have worked well for me.

What Makes TheMuscleProgram Unique

What makes unique from all of the other bodybuilding and fitness websites? The biggest (no pun intended) difference is that I write all of my own content. Most of the workout and fitness websites out there hire people to write their articles and content, so it’s not genuine or authentic (a lot of the content is rewritten!). It’s a lot of work, but I write all of the reviews, articles, workouts, nutrition plans, and so forth.

I also have an extremely active workout blog and keep you updated with my own workout routine, nutrition plan, and supplements I’m taking. So you’ll see what works for me and what doesn’t, and that may be beneficial to you in your quest for muscle (make sure you subscribe to my newsletter on the top right).

About TheMuscleProgram

A personal note: I’m obviously not a pro bodybuilder nor am I an athlete. I’m just a normal dude who loves to train! On my site, I emphasize on what we all want; to build as much lean muscle as possible while cutting out the fat. All of the information on this site is a series of my own personal experiences through trial and error (and yes, I write all of the content on

There are two things I’ve learned from my experience in this journey to build muscle without having gifted genetics:

1) There’s no one particular method that works for everyone as we’re all unique. This goes for training, nutrition, and supplementation.

2) Despite the former, there are a hand full of tried and true basics that work for most people. At the end of the day you have to find what works for you and that’s the beauty of this journey. Hopefully The Muscle Program site will help you with that.

TheMuscleProgram’s Mission Statement

My Mission here at TheMuscleProgram is to provide you with helpful tips and information related to weight training, bodybuilding, nutrition, and supplements to build muscle and lose fat as well as living an overall healthy and active lifestyle. Most of us aren’t necessarily aspiring to be competitive bodybuilders or professional athletes. However, we train just as hardcore simply because it’s a part of who we are. It’s the lifestyle we choose and it’s our passion.

Important: this site is for men AND women. I know some women that train circles around most men. You women that are passionate about building and shaping muscle, and training hardcore, this site is for you as well. The truth is that everyone despite their gender can benefit substantially from building muscle. And that’s what is all about.

Train with Passion,
