4 DAY HYPTROPHY PROGRAM

Updated: Jun 24

This is a full body four day workout program that hits all main muscle groups once per week. Its fantastic for novice lifters new to weightlifting learning the ropes, and the program doesn't include any heavy compound free-weight exercises. Thus making the program easier to get to grips with. Furthermore, making it safer for anyone with injuries that hinder mobility or a person seeking a lower impact program that focuses more on machine supported exercises.
