One of the questions I hear a lot of other trainers get is “Can we do a really cool bodyweight-only workout that can get me really muscular and jacked?” My answer in one word-no. That’s the bad news. Now before everyone asks to have me burned at the stake for speaking heresy, let me explain.
Sadik Hadzovic has quickly made a name for himself as one of the top competitors in the IFBB’s Men’s Physique division. One of the staples of his world-class physique? Wide, round shoulders, one of the most important areas of focus for anyone training to build the ultimate v-taper physique.
Arnold was a volume fanatic, as you may have seen in the movie “Pumping Iron.” He trained his chest as often as three days a week, and used a six-days-on/one-day-off, double-split routine throughout much of his professional career. What people don’t know is that Arnold would often train his back on the same day as chest. He loved doing exercises that increased his training volume, and was known to do lots of supersets.
The concept of being exceptionally lean and tight all year long seems about as realistic as time travel to most of us. But for champion Men’s Physique athlete and fitness model Casey Christopher, having a shredded six-pack all the time is simply a way of life.

With the seemingly infinite variables required for program design, identifying the optimal framework can be daunting. Complicating this process is the conflicting methodologies between two of the most sought after fitness goals: Gaining muscle while losing body fat. We hope to shed some light on this elusive pursuit with a detailed framework from which you can simultaneously achieve a muscular and shredded physique.
There are many athletes who don’t practice a solid nutrition plan but still display well defined abs. The key to ab visibility is a combination of development and low body fat.
Most guys work out because they want to minimize fat and look cut. Preventing heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure is nice, but it doesn’t get to the heart of why men train— to look fit and sexually attractive. Unfortunately, life gets in the way. Who has time for the two- or three-hour workouts necessary to look cut and buff? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could build muscle and cut fat by training only one hour per week?
“Even though it’s a strength, chest is always priority area for me,” Buendia says. “It gives me that more balanced, more powerful physique look and that’s what stands out for me.
