I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and family. Most of us ate a ton of wholesome, quality food. Hey, turkey is a great source or protein! Of course I threw in plenty of mashed potatoes, sweet potato pie, dressing, and some desserts.
I’m starting out today’s Mass Monday coming off of 4 days with no training. So this morning’s workout felt great as I was fresh and rested. With that, I started a new workout routine today which I will share will you below.
Push – Pull – Legs Workout Routine
I’m going to an old school workout routine that I haven’t done in over a year. Push – Pull – Legs. This is a 3-day workout routine and you can restarted it on the 4th day (or take a rest day or two between). Here’s a breakdown of Push – Pull – Legs:
- Day 1
- Chest, Shoulders, Triceps
- Day 2
- Back, Traps, Biceps
- Day 3
I will choose 3 exercises for larger muscles such as chest, back and quads. For everything else I’ll typically do 2 exercises.
What I like about the Push – Pull – Legs workout routine is it allows you to train each body part twice a week. I train 5 days on, 2 days off (basically Monday through Friday with weekends off). I may occasionally do one workout over the weekend.
* Push – Pull – Legs is part of my Hardcore Muscle Building Program, so check that out!

Actually most of the sides are gone but there’s a bit of turkey left. That’ll be my lunch today through Wednesday!
