Thank you for your comment, but the exercises are "time challenges", meaning you have to do the reps in the shortest time you can.

Hey Sarahliz,

So many ways to incorporate a 3 day/week program successfully. Here is a sample, focusing on the squat and bench press:

Monday

1. Squats (heavy...6 reps)
2. Leg curl or reverse ham
3. Benches (light...12 reps)
4. Incline presses
5. Bentover rows
6. Core exercise

Wednesday

1. Deadlifts
2. Calf raises
3. Shoulder presses
4. Arm curls
5. Arm extensions
6. Core exercise

Friday

1. Squats (light...12 reps)
2. Benches (heavy...6 reps)
3. Assisted dips
4. Assisted chins
5. Hammer curls
6. Core exercise

Good luck! Let me know if you have other questions, always willing to help.

Hey There,

The program you referenced looks pretty solid. I know you mentioned you don't go to a gym, so how are you able to do all those exercises? You might want to consider a three day per week full body routine with fewer exercises each workout as an alternative. I have found the key for many of my clients that are trying to gain muscle weight is to train harder and smarter but less often. I would suggest maybe 3 sets of 8-12 reps for most exercises, maybe adding a final heavy set of six reps when you are really "feeling it".

Also, focus on your pre and post workout nutrition because it will be critical to your success. Protein and carbs at each, with your biggest meal within 2 hours after working out. Like I mentioned, this process will take time and consistency. It could well take 2-3 months to put on those solid pounds, but it will be worth it in the end.

Good luck!
