Intermediate 6 Day Workout Split

Intermediate Training.

Once you have mastered the basic techniques and diet, you will see steady gains over the coming months. When you begin to workout and you no longer feel challenged, the likely hood is your body has adapted to the resistance level and plan you have in place. Now we need to force the body back into adaptation mode by increasing the workout intensity.

To start with, working on the basic workout plan you should be building up the weight resistance and shortening the rest period between sets.

When you have done the above, its time to move to the next level.

When you have began to really catch the workout bug, and every chance to workout excited you, that’s when you know its time to step it up a gear.

Bodybuilding Diet

How many times should i eat when Bodybuilding?

So, you new to bodybuilding or you’re looking to take it to the next level by sorting out your diet?

If this sounds familiar, worry no more. We have broken down a simple plan to follow in order to bulk up.

The first thing your going to need to do is calculate your MACROS, you can do this using many Macro calculators online, this will give you a basis for your meals.

Example: I weigh 89kg and bulking, i ingest 3000+ calories a day. this is broken down over 5 meals using the following Macros, although not always split evenly.

  • carbohydrates 89G
  • Protein 39G
  • Fat 19G

Overall target calories per meal is 685.

If you don’t have time or prefer to eat 3 times a day then you would break this down again into bigger portions:

  • carbohydrates 162G
  • Protein 54G
  • Fat 32G

Eating smaller meals more often supports metabolism function, so when possible aim for 5 to 6 meals a day.

Carbohydrates & Protein:

Carbohydrates are your body’s preferred fuel source.

Carbs are best utilized around your workout, eaten around 1 hour before you plan to workout, and again within 20 minutes of finishing the workout

Protein is a fast digesting, Put simply, they work together to provide your body with the necessary foundation to create the amino acids that are needed to build muscle tissue, quicker and more efficiently. Protein is used to repair muscle tissue and promote growth.

protein is best taken throughout the day in spaced intervals, but is especially important post workout.

Using your Macros and taking your workout time schedule, you should plan your meals out to best fit.

Example 5 meal split

Meal 1 : 581 Calories Carbohydrate 53G | Protein 7.63G | Fat 41G

  • 1 Cup of blueberries
  • Half cup of pecans
  • 1 large banana

Meal 2: Carbohydrates 44G | Protein 39G | Fat 46G

  • 1 Cup whole wheat pasta
  • 2 Italian sausages

Meal 3: Carbohydrates 33G | Protein 106G | Fat 22G

  • 900G Cottage Cheese

Meal 4: Carbohydrates: 0G | Protein 133G | Fat 15.4G

  • 2 Chicken Breasts

Meal 5: Carbohydrates  120G | Protein 22G | Fat 5.8G

  • Whole wheat bread 6 Slices
  • Apricot jab 4 Table spoons

Personally, i would combine and split meal 3 & 4.

This and many more meal plans can be generated following this link

Bicep Curls

What is a Bicep curl?

A Bicep curl is a term used for lifting of a weight in a curling motion towards the shoulder.

The full name of the Bicep is the Bicep Brachili, this makes up both the short head and long head muscles within the upper arm associated to the bicep.

Dumbbell & Barbell Curls:

Dumbbell Curls, in the conventional form mainly target the Bicep Brachili, but also works the Anterior Deltioin (Shoulder) and the Brachioradialis (Forearm)  as a secondary muscle groups.

Bicep Curl Variations.

Although there are multiple sub variations within Bicep curls, the main variations are Hammer Curls and conventional Bicep Curls. the main difference is the Hammer Curl will also use muscle fibers within the forearm, stimulating new long head growth, while the Bicep Curl will stimulate  the peak and short arm fibers, and when stressed will build new growth in a more defined area.

Sub Variations of Bicep Curls

Isolation Curl – Standing leaning over, use one hand at a time to curl up the Dumbbell towards the shoulder twisting wrist outwards when coming to the peak of the exercise. Lower Dumbbells back to the starting position and continue for desired rep range

Standing Curls – Starting in a standing position with a Dumbbell in each hand in the upright position, slowly curl up the Dumbbell, twisting outwards until fully contracted at the peak. Lower Dumbbells back to the starting position and continue for desired rep range

Seated Curls – Starting in a Seated position with a Dumbbell in each hand in the upright position, slowly curl up the Dumbbell, twisting outwards until fully contracted at the peak. Lower Dumbbells back to the starting position and continue for desired rep range

Preacher Curl – Using a preacher bench, Sit in the position so your chest is against the pad grab the preacher bar with palms facing upwards. Keep arms at shoulder length apart and slowly raise the bar, squeezing at the peak of movement. Slowly lower to starting position and continue for desired rep range.

EZ Bar Curls – Start in a standing position, gripping the EZ-bar at a wide grip, Slowly curl the bar up, only using the bicep to do the work. Squeeze at the peak of exercise and slowly lower to starting position and continue for desired rep range.

Wide Grip Barbell Curls – Start in a standing position, gripping the Barbell with a grip shoulder distance apart, Slowly curl the bar up, only using the bicep to do the work. Squeeze at the peak of exercise and slowly lower to starting position and continue for desired rep range.

Narrow Grip Barbell Curls– Start in a standing position, gripping the Barbell with a grip a few inches apart, slowly curl the bar up, only using the bicep to do the work. Squeeze at the peak of exercise and slowly lower to starting position and continue for desired rep range.

Cable Curls – Stand up with your torso upright while holding a cable curl bar that is attached to a low pulley. Grab the cable bar at shoulder width and keep the elbows close to the torso. The palm of your hands should be facing up. Slowly curl the bar up, only using the bicep to do the work. Squeeze at the peak of exercise and slowly lower to starting position and continue for desired rep range.

Bicep Curl Accessories

For beginners, we suggest using a Bicep Isolator, Biceps Isolator enforces correct positioning during biceps work, as it is specially designed to keep your upper arms stationary and at an angle while you do standing curls and other biceps work, to make certain the user sustains the most efficient training methods.

The Bicep Isolators can be picked up on Amazon and other outlets, ranging in price from budget brands at below £10, to high-end retailed at £50+

Jekyll & Hyde Review

ProSupps Jekyll & Hyde Review.

ProSupps Statement:

Our Company’s vision is to encourage healthy living through exercise, diet and supplementation. We will create products specific to this vision, and provide the tools for all ProSupps customers to reach their personal health and fitness goals.

Professional Supplements “ProSupps” is committed:

  • To provide the highest quality product possible through our highly skilled and dedicated employees and our unique and cutting edge product assortment.
  • To pursue an aggressive, outgoing research and development program thus insuring its future as a leader in supplementation and nutrition.
  • To provide the highest standards of service available through our highly trained, domestic and international field representatives and customer service personnel. ProSupps team members are expected to serve the customer with the highest level of product knowledge in the industry

Muscle Guild Summary:

Jekyll & Hyde are marked up at £25 & £30 at multiple leading retailers.

At the midrange price range, ProSupps offers both a High stimulant pre workout and a low stimulant pump booster. Combines together as recommended by the manufacturer: Half dose of Hyde with a full dose of Jekyll gets a powerful energy surge, clarity of focus and muscle popping pumps (the pain is beautiful)…

Training Day: We used Hyde & Jekyll stack across multiple workouts when we hit a slump, but find saving it for Leg Day always gives us the extra push at the end of a gruling session…

Training session: Lifting straight sets at 10 rep range 75% 1RM. Combined with 1RM power lifting sets

Effects:

The effects of this stack are prominent and noticeable within a few minutes, standard side effects of well dosed ingredients such as tingles are there, but overpowered by the energy surge that soon sets in, we found it hard not to be constantly moving while allowing 20 minutes to pass as recommended by ProSupps.

While training with Jekyll & Hyde, we did not experience any crash effect, but with this stack, you know you have pushed yourself to the limit by the time you hit the shower..

Performance Boost: Tracking against sessions of the same difficulty, we found the Jekyll & Hyde stack gives you the boost you need to power through any set, always being able to force out reps when pushing to exhaustion..

The energy makes it difficult to stop, and we found the rest period needed reduced by 5 seconds on average.

Overall: If you can cope with the highly dosed stimulants, this stack is one of the best on the market! Muscle splitting pumps and pure raw power.

Score: 10/10

MR Hyde & DR Jekyll

Although similar in ingredients, the main difference is the amount of Caffeine in MR Hyde.

If you respond well to stimulants, MR Hyde will give you the “Mind over Matter” effect to power through your workout.

DR Jekyll, uses a low dose of stimulants but is made up with pump amplifiers to provide the “Chasing the Pump” mentality to power through.

Both can be used on their own, but when stacked together, you get the ultimate combination of mind and pump!

This stuff lives up to its name, take our work, if your not progressing like before crab some Hyde & Jekyll and power through.

Muscle Guild Summary:

MYPRE 2.0 is marked up at £24.99, although with MyProtein’s ever rolling sale the price is around £17, which makes this pre workout at the budget end of the market.

Training Day: We used MYPRE 2.0 on Shoulders & Back training session lifting straight sets at at 10 rep range 75% 1RM.

Effects: We took MYPRE 2.0 20 minutes before starting our session, unlike most pre-workouts we did not get any initial tingling or the psyched up feeling associated to strong dosed pre workouts like ProSupps Hyde or REDCON Total War, and the effects didn’t kick into life untill we really pushed to failure on shoulder press, but once in motion, this pre-workout gave us one hell of a sweat.

Performance Boost: We didn’t feel any performance boost either mentally or physically compared to other pre workouts.

Overall: Taking into consideration the ingredients and the promise, we didn’t feel the pre-workout lived up to its promise, but if you’re looking to make some fat cry, and love the feeling of uncontrollable sweat.. This is a pre workout for you!

Core power is fundamental to all compound exercises, and although compound movements will build on core strength, the core needs to be worked as part of each training day.

We suggest stomach crunches, planks or ab-rolls at the end of each session.

Home Gym for Beginners

Looking to get into Body building?

We all start somewhere, but not all of us like to jump straight into a gym contract and have the determination to stick it out, and usually wind up paying gym fees for a year while we stopped going after month one.

Sound familiar ? I was exactly the same, but after child two and a new job, and a ever expanding waist line, i decided to make use of that spare room and get in some gym equipment to fight the inner fatty..

Now lots of people start by buying some dumbbells or a treadmill on finance in the hope of shedding the weight in just a few months, but in reality it’s not going to happen.(unless you love cardio…)

So after evaluating myself, and giving my self a goal to lose weight and build muscle i set out looking for some affordable gym equipment, that would fit in the space i had and could be used in a variety of workouts.

Should i buy a Multi Gym?

No. Well, depending on your goals, while multi gyms are great for isolation exercises, they are limited in there use, and often restricted in the weight that can be added.

The aim of body building is to build a well proportioned symmetrical body, so unless you have enough money and space to fit in various resistance machines, i’d advise against it.

What we opted for.

We opted for the Gorilla Sports Workstation package with 100kg of Vinyl weights

gorilla sports workstation
Gorilla Sports Workstation

This unit is retailed for £269 ar GorillaSports.co.uk

The unit comes in the same price as a budget treadmill, or basic multi gym units.

Included in the package is:

Weight Bench:

  • For weight plates with a hole diameter of 30mm
  • Backrest: 6-way adjustable
  • Curl station: 3-way adjustable
  • Leg press: 3-way adjustable
  • Barbell rack with locking pins: 5-way adjustable

Free Wights:

  • 4 x 1.25KG weight plates
  • 4 x 2.5KG weight plates
  • 2 x 5KG weight plates
  • 2 x 10KG weight plates
  • 2 x 15KG weight plates
  • 1 x 170cm barbell bar – 10KG
  • 1 x 120cm EZ Curl bar – 8KG
  • 2 x 2.5KG 35cm dumbbell bars
  • 8 x Spinlock Star Collars to secure the weights
  • 31mm hole diameter – bars not suitable for use with 1inch weight plates.
  • Plate colour: Black
  • Plastic coating prevents scratches and scuffs to the floor of your workout area

Additional details: Bench dimensions (LxWxH): 180 cm, 106 cm, 90 – 110 cm. Cushion dimensions (LxWxH): Back cushion: 68cm, 28cm, 4cm. Curl station dimensions (LxWxH): 28cm, 44.5cm, 4cm.

Weight training (flat bench). Triceps push up.

What exercises can i do?

So as the station uses free weights, there are a number of exercises we can do, that target all muscle groups.

Below is a simplified list of workouts that can be performed using the equipment listed.

  • Bench press (All variations)
  • Incline bench press
  • Decline bench press (Bridge position)
  • Fly’s using breast rack or dumbbells (All variations)
  • Dips
  • Incline push-ups
  • Curl (All variations)
