The Ultimate Workout Routine for Men (Tailored for Different Fitness Level)

The Ultimate Workout Routine for Men (Tailored for Different Fitness Level)

Now is as good a time as any to focus on getting your body into the best shape possible.

Whether you want to build muscle or completely transform your body, if you follow the right workout routine for men, you will get exactly what you need. (No! It’s never too late to start bodybuilding, here’s the proof.)

Finding the right workout routine, however, is tough. You see, in order to progress, you need to find a workout that appeals to you and is feasible based on your abilities.

In this article I’m going to list 3 workout plans for men to build muscle. Each workout routine is tailored for individuals of different abilities: a beginner routine, an intermediate routine and an advanced routine.

What’s so special about this workout routine for men?

There are plenty of workout routines out there for men, so what is it about these routines that are so special? Well, they are tailormade to each unique individual, rather than covering a broad demographic.

Basically, each routine is engineered towards an individual’s ability levels and fitness levels in the gym.

It wouldn’t be much use having a very fit and healthy bodybuilder, with many years of training under his belt, following a workout routine for men that is aimed at complete beginners. He will already know what he is doing and will find the routine far too easy. On the flipside, if he is looking for a new and challenging workout routine, he can follow the advanced program and will enjoy great results.

With that in mind, here are the three routines to try the next time you’re in the gym depending on your unique level of fitness:

Beginner full body workout routine

To start with, we’ll be taking a look at a beginner workout routine.

This workout isn’t too difficult; though, for those new to health and fitness, it will certainly prove challenging.

    Day 1: Chest, Back, Shoulders, Legs, Biceps, Triceps

    Day 2: Legs, Triceps, Biceps, Chest, Back, Shoulder

    Day 3: Shoulders, Back, Chest, Legs, Triceps, Biceps

    Intermediate workout for men

    This next workout is ideal for those of you who are advanced enough to challenge yourselves in the gym without going crazy.

    This workout routine will help you burn a steady amount of fat without burning yourself out in the process. It is a typical 5 day split that will yield impressive muscle gains.
