5 Best Workout Routines For Men (Which One’s Right For You?)

“What’s the best workout routine?” A lot of guys want a very simple, black and white answer to this question. Well, sorry, but it doesn’t exist. The best workout routine for you will depend on a number of factors:

  • How long have you been working out?
  • Do you want to build strength or mass?
  • Do you want to look good, or just stay fit?
  • Do you value cardiovascular health or muscular health more?
  • Are you busy and crunched for time?
  • Are you a college student with zero time constraints whatsoever?

The fact of the matter is that deciding what the best workout routine is for you is an extremely important aspect of your lifestyle.

I’ve done routines that only require 45 minutes a month (that’s right, like 12 minutes a week) and I’ve done routines that require 3 hours 6 days a week. Every routine has its pros and cons.

I’m not going to sugar coat it for you and tell you some bullshit about how there’s this one routine that fits everyone! It’s the best workout routine out there, and you just have to pay $39.99 to access it! Fuck off. I’m here to tell you the truth based off of my experience. So here it is.

whey protein

The Best Whey Protein Guide You’ll Ever Read (Updated 2019)

“What’s the best whey protein?” the gym-going newbie asks.

Well, as I’ve said before, whey protein is by far one of the best muscle building supplements on planet earth.

It’s perfect right after a workout, because it’s fast digesting—it gets your muscles the protein that they need in just 30 minutes (compared to a meal, which takes around 2 hours).

But it’s not that simple—not all whey protein is created equal. This is one of the first things that I learned from working at a supplement store in college.

There’s cold processed whey, grass-fed whey, casein blends, isolate matrixes, and protein concentrate…how in the hell do you know what to choose?

Well, I’ve tried over 100 different whey protein supplements and narrowed it down to a few of the best so that you don’t have to waste your time and money. Here’s the best whey protein supplements, in my opinion.

Gym Gear: 4 Best Deadlift, Squat, and Bench Straps in 2019

I actually didn’t even use gym gear for a while. Not because I thought it was cheating or anything like that, I mean Olympic power-lifters use it all the time. I guess I just never really thought about it.

But when I recently started using the following gym gear, my max lifts literally went up overnight. My bench went up 10%, my squat went up 15%, and my deadlift went up a whopping 25%.

If you’re a guy who’s trying to get bigger in the gym, or if you’re just trying to get stronger and leaner, I highly urge you to use gym gear for the major compound lifts.

Starting Strength: The Full Routine and Review For Beginners

Starting Strength can be one of the best workout routines for beginners, so if that’s what you want, then look no further.

I know how frustrating it can be, searching around, trying to figure out where to start. There’s literally a million different “gurus” saying that you should do this, or that you should do that. It’s incredibly confusing.

I was in the same boat about a decade ago, and I wasted years following stupid workout routines that don’t work.

Most people will tell you to do a split, but in my experience most people also don’t know what they’re talking about.

In my nearly 10 years of fitness experience, the best workout routine for beginners is Mark Rippetoe’s Starting Strength, due to its sheer simplicity, effectiveness, and time-efficiency.

Bulking on a Budget: The $100/Month Clean Bulk Meal Plan!

Finding a good bulking diet when you’re broke as a joke can be REALLY difficult. Bodybuilding foods can cost an arm and a leg.

I remember when I first made my bulking on a budget meal plan. I was a broke college student trying to save money.

Despite my lack of income, I was determined to get big—it wasn’t a “want,” it was a “must.” I wanted to bulk up… and I wanted to do it fast.

So, I decided to create the most calorie-efficient, cheapest, clean bulking diet possible—and I succeeded.

On just $100 a month, I was able to successfully bulk up for the winter, putting on a solid 20 pounds of muscle. Plus, all of my lifts went up.

So, if whether you’re a broke college student, an entrepreneur trying to put all your money into a business, or just a guy who doesn’t want to spend a lot of money on food, here’s the best clean bulking diet for you.

7 Scientifically Proven Ways to Boost Testosterone

One of the most common questions that I get asked is: “How do I boost testosterone levels?”

Why do I get asked this question so much? Well, because testosterone levels are at an all time low nowadays. With artificial ingredients, GMO’S, parabens, and phyto-estrogens lowering this man-hormone, it’s no wonder that so many modern men are highly effeminate.

Testosterone is an anabolic androgenic hormone, which means it’s responsible for muscle growth, confidence, assertiveness, a sense of well-being, energy, and libido levels.

In short, the more testosterone that you have, the better your life will be. It’s no coincidence that high-achieving men also have high levels of testosterone.

Unfortunately, however, our society is littered with things that decrease testosterone levels: pthalates, soy, petro-chemicals, political correctness, a complete lack of male role models, and more. It’s almost like there’s a war against masculinity.

Fortunately, however, it’s very possible to increase your testosterone levels. In fact, using the following tips, I increased my testosterone by around 75%.

Top 4 Best Supplements For Building Muscle (Updated 2019)

Most supplements are bullshit, especially when it comes to supplements for building muscle.

I’ve tried just about every supplement out there. From rare Chinese herbs claiming to extend your life by 40 years, to a funky mushroom that grows on the backs of caterpillars native to the Andes, I’ve spent literally thousands of dollars on supplements.

And do you know what? Most of that money was wasted on crappy supplements that don’t work. But, there are some that work—you just have to know which ones.

That’s why I’ve made this list for you. I remember when I first started getting into fitness, I was completely clueless. I got scammed on numerous occasions by GNC and other over-priced stores, and it wasn’t until 6 months later that I started to figure out which supplements were worth my time.

These 4 supplements will shoot your muscle growth through the roof.
