Six weeks is a nice time frame for a program. Just shy of two months. It’s in-between “fast results” and that stage where you also need some time to build up your strength and endurance.
You can start when you’ve got a modest buffer of time before you actually want to be your leanest. * You’re less likely to burn out from overly aggressive workouts and brutally strict dieting that are typically required in programs with significantly shorter time frames.
Trainer, dietician, and HFP contributor Tim McComsey speaks with Mike Simone for Men’s Fitness Magazine about the program.
THE TRIM IN SIX WORKOUT
You will be working out a total of six days for the duration of six weeks.
DAY ONE: Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps
DAY TWO: Back, Biceps, and Traps
DAY THREE: Legs
DAY FOUR: Off
DAY FIVE: Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps
DAY SIX: Back, Biceps, and Traps
DAY SEVEN: Plyometrics and High-Intensity Intervals
* Shorter, highly-intense, strict, and aggressive programs are still an effective option, but it’s best to save for last-minute body composition changes, or when your mental strength and fortitude requires testing. Example program: The 21-Day Shred
