The Evolution 6-Week Training Plan

The workout routine I've been cycling in 2022 = restarting every 6 weeks with some minor modifications. Full credit to this routine goes to Joe Manganiello.

  • Rest 1 min, repeat 3 times

Week 1

You’ll complete this for all sets of each exercise, rest, and then move on to the next circuit. This is the strategy you’ll apply for all circuits, unless instructed otherwise.
