| Workout Overview

We continue our series of workouts that can be performed with the equipment available at your local gym with an upper/lower split.

If you’re just starting to work out we recommend beginning with the 3 Day Full Body Planet Fitness Workout. After you’ve finished that program, this program would be the perfect option to perform next.

These workouts were inspired by a lot of you guys.

We noticed a lot of questions coming in on our popular workout routines asking how they could be modified.

So, we thought, why not provide you all with a little bit of a more useful group of workouts?

And now, we’re bringing you the second workout you can do at your local gym.

| Workout Summary

No one would disagree that barbell training is a great way to build muscle and strength.

While performing the workout, limit your rest periods between sets to 60-90 seconds after each set and in between exercises.

Abdominal training and cardio can both be added in either the morning of your workouts, after your workouts, on rest days, or a combination of the three depending on your goals.
