A Practical Muscle Growth Plan for the Skinny Guy
The following is a detailed description of the program that I have developed over many years. My goal was to create a simple yet effective program that would allow me to get leaner while still having enough energy to perform my job. I believe it works very well and will work for anyone looking to lose fat quickly without getting injured or burning out too soon.
My name is Scott Jurek and I am a former professional bodybuilder. I had been training since I was 15 and competed in amateur shows until 2004 when I decided to stop competing due to health reasons. Since then, I have trained hard every day but now that my health has improved so much, it’s time to take things up a notch!
I’m not going to lie; this isn’t going to be easy. You’re going to need to put in some extra effort than what you are used to doing. But don’t worry, I’ve got your back!
Before we begin, let me tell you that if you decide to follow this program, it’s entirely possible that you’ll end up hating yourself. That’s okay though because losing fat doesn’t have to be all bad. If anything, it can actually make life better! I’ve included some life-hack suggestions on the last page of this ebook that should make things easier.
On that note, let’s get started!
What is This Program?
This program is a high intensity interval training routine designed to burn fat and build lean muscle mass in record time. It is divided into 4 days with each day focusing on a different area of the body. It mixes cardio and resistance training to keep your muscles guessing and to give your metabolism a major boost.
This routine will take less than an hour per day, but expect to be pushed to your limits. This program is not for everyone. It is only for people who want extreme results and are ready to work for them.
Before We Begin…
If you’re serious about getting in the best shape of your life, then you need to check yourself before you wreck yourself. Don’t start this program until you can answer yes to each of the following questions:
Do you have any pre-existing injuries?
If yes, then it is highly recommended that you see a physician before beginning any new exercise routine. While this program should be safe for most people, we can’t guarantee its safety for everyone.
Do you get a minimum of 7-8 hours of sleep each night? Do you already do some sort of physical activity?
If yes, then make sure it isn’t immediately before or after this routine. You want to give your body adequate time to rest.
Are you 18 years of age or older?
While many young adults have seen success with this program, the science behind it indicates that it may be most effective for those in their late teens and twenties.
This program will teach you the basics of getting in shape and how to eat right. Once you’ve achieved your goals, it is recommended that you spend at least one month maintaining your results before starting this program again.
Who is This Program For?
Guys and girls of all ages can follow this program! It is split into four levels to accommodate for different skill levels and schedules.
The Beginner Program is perfect for people who are just getting into shape and delivering significant results.
The Intermediate Program requires more time and dedication, but helps you push past your boundaries.
The Advanced Program is the toughest program Level-uplifter has to offer. Only the most dedicated athletes should consider this program.
The Custom Program is perfect if you already have some experience in workout regimens. This program is also great for experienced lifters as it can be tailored to your specific needs. It’s also the most customizable program to fit your available time and abilities allowing you to swap, replace, or add parts of the routine to better suit your needs.
