What does your weekly workout plan look like? Do you just sort of walk into the gym and hope for the best? One of the best ways to find success at the gym is to come with a solid plan. As a NASM-certified trainer, I have created this weekly workout plan to guide you toward your muscle-building goals. With the workout plan ahead, you can make the most of your time in the gym, while increasing your confidence in using all of the portable pieces of equipment — like hand-weights, kettlebells, and medicine balls.
None of the exercises are set in stone, so if something is too complicated or not challenging enough, feel free to make adjustments. The same thing applies with the weight. I’d rather you make modifications when necessary and perform the exercises with proper form since doing them incorrectly can lead to injury.
Before every workout, be sure to warm up with dynamic exercises including ones that activate your core and glutes. Then cool down after every workout.
Tip: If you’re trying to build muscle, follow this workout plan for four to six weeks. You can also just use this plan to help get you into a routine — definitely reference it on those days when you’re just too tired to think.
