Tips from the Pros

The Best Program Combos For Men

Are you someone who likes lots of variety in your fitness training? Then good news! With FizzUp, it’s easy to mix and match programs to get maximum results from your workouts. Read on to discover our top program combo recommendations for your goal and fitness level.

IF YOUR GOAL IS TO BUILD MUSCLE…

Want to gain muscle mass and show off an evenly built and dry physique? Then your mix and match routine should be a combination of a pure strength training that will sculpt your entire body and a program that targets your abs. In this case, you’ve got two options: either you do one workout from each program back-to-back or you alternate programs every time you work out. For instance, you can do a workout from the abs program on lighter days to help you manage fatigue and promote recovery.

THE BEST PROGRAM COMBOS FOR STRENGTH TRAINING WITH EQUIPMENT

With Build – Full Body, you’ll grow your main muscle groups (pecs, biceps, triceps, thighs, back and shoulders) with three short and effective dumbbell workouts a week. Progressive overload makes exercises like military presses, bent-over rows and Bulgarian split squats so powerful. This is a weight training technique that adjusts the intensity of the loads throughout your program to guarantee progress. Continue your session with a workout from Core Training or alternate between Build – Full Body and this program, which is perfect for shaping your six-pack and building a solid core. You’ll target your midsection with dynamic and static exercises that challenge your abs and make you stronger and more powerful every day.

  • If your fitness level is beginner to intermediate: DB-800 + Abs

What’s the aim of DB-800? To perfectly master key exercises such as biceps curls, bench presses and thrusters. With these fun and comprehensive workouts, you’ll learn how to handle dumbbells like a pro and build your back, pecs, biceps, triceps, thighs and calves. Pair this routine with Abs, a program that zeros in on your abdominal muscles, to reveal and define your midsection.

THE BEST PROGRAM COMBOS FOR STRENGTH TRAINING WITHOUT EQUIPMENT

  • If your fitness level is intermediate to advanced: Muscle + 6-Pack

The Muscle program is proof that bodyweight exercises are enough to build strong muscles. This routine of three workouts a week focuses primarily on your upper body with push-up, dip and crunch variations (among others), shaping your torso and working your abs in depth. For even more visible results, develop your six-pack with our dedicated program 6-Pack. Challenge your abs with impressive exercises and eliminate stubborn belly fat with high-intensity cardio moves.

Get the urge to show off a sculpted torso and prominent abs when summer is just around the corner? Beach Body is our personalized program made to help you achieve your goals in record time. Quickly sculpt your chest, pecs, abs, arms and shoulders with equipment-free exercises. Boost your results by adding the Abs program to this workout plan. You’ll home in on your abs and chisel your midsection with mighty abdominal strengthening exercises such as planks, crunches and leg raises.

THE BEST PROGRAM COMBOS FOR STRENGTH TRAINING IN THE GYM

  • If your fitness level is intermediate to advanced: Gym + Abs

Like working out in the gym, but don’t want to spend hours there? Let FizzUp guide you with Gym, a complete program that guarantees you’ll gain muscle mass after just four weeks. Gym alternates between “pull” days that work your lats, biceps and hamstrings and “push” days that work your pecs, shoulders, triceps and quads. Exercises, sets, reps, weights and rest times are all calculated to ensure that your muscles grow, get stronger and gain endurance. Add our Abs program for a solid upper body.
