One of the promises of my new book Muscle for Life is it can produce an outstanding level of fitness in all and sundry in just a few hours per week.

That’s why it contains three workout routines for men and women to choose from: beginner, intermediate, and advanced routines.

The beginner workout routines introduce you to proper strength training, teaching you the fundamentals of proper technique and greatly enhancing your strength, balance, and coordination. 

The intermediate routines increase the difficulty of your workouts by incorporating more challenging exercises, including more dumbbell exercises, which allow you to more effectively challenge your muscles. 

And the advanced routines are the most difficult in the Muscle for Life program. They introduce you to barbell exercises, which offer the biggest bang for your buck in terms of strength and muscle gain. 

Which of these workout routines would be best for you?

Well, if you’re new to strength training or haven’t done it consistently in at least a year, you’d want to start with a beginner routine. It’s a demanding but approachable introduction to the Muscle for Life style of training. 

If you dabble in strength training and meet the following strength standards, however, an intermediate routine is for you:

  • Men: 1 set of 15 feet-elevated push-ups, 1 set of 10 strict push-ups, 1 set of 15 bodyweight rows
  • Women: 1 set of 10 push-ups, 1 set of 10 bodyweight rows, 1 set of 15 bodyweight squats

And if you’re an experienced weightlifter who meets or exceeds the following strength standards, an advanced routine will baste your turkey:

  • Dumbbell bench press: 25 percent of your body weight for at least 1 set of 5 reps
  • Trap-bar deadlift: 75 percent of your body weight for at least 1 set of 5 reps
  • Dumbbell goblet squat: 25 percent of your body weight for at least 1 set of 5 reps

So basically, whether you’re a middle-ager or even a golden-ager who has never lifted a weight in your life or a dedicated weekend warrior looking to “level up,” Muscle for Life has something for you.

P.S. Wondering how the Muscle for Life workout routines compare to my Bigger Leaner Stronger and Thinner Leaner Stronger programs?

Put simply, Muscle for Life is a smooth and gradual onramp to those programs. Therefore, Muscle for Life will work best for you if . . .

  1. You’re in your 40s or 50s or older and are new or relatively new to strength training.
  2. You have a lot of weight to lose (25% of body weight or more) and are new or relatively new to strength training.
  3. You want to start doing strength training but don’t feel ready for heavy barbell training.
  4. You’re fit and want to brush up on the fundamentals and find simple ways to improve your diet and training regimens.
