4 Weeks To MONSTER MASS! Full Program

By: David Gluhareff CFT ISSA

If you have been looking to put on some serious mass, then this is the plan for you. In just four weeks one of my clients has put on 6 pounds of mass without gaining any in the waist. He has put on 6 lean pounds of mass by following the routine developed below. His strength is through the roof and I can see some serious shoulder, pecs, back, arm and total body development has occurred. He has taken on a great shape in only four weeks by following the weights workouts below.

His weight training only takes about an hour three times per week. His diet and nutrition plan, which was designed by myself and a colleague of mine, is being adhered to very strictly. By him following the diet and nutrition plan so closely this client only has to do small amounts of cardio to keep the fat level down and preserve muscle mass, not burn it. Try this 4-week mass plan and let us know what kind of gains you make!

Week One:

Diet

Meals every two to three hours upon waking.

Meal One: (breakfast) Half cup of oatmeal and Cytogainer (Cytosport) shake + one serving of V12 (SAN)

Meal Two: (mid-morning school snack) Whole grain peanut butter sandwich or whole grain turkey sandwich double meat or handful of nuts and apple or pear

Meal Three - (lunch) Two grilled chicken breasts or med. can of tuna with handful of green veggies or handful of salad with olive oil and vinegar dressing

Meal Four - (late afternoon snack probably post workout) Cytogainer (Cytosport) shake with apple or pear

Meal Five - (dinner) One and a half handfuls of lean meat such as london broil, chicken breasts, turkey breasts, tuna steaks, or salmon with two handfuls of green veggies and med. sweet potato or handful of brown rice

Meal Six - (bedtime) Pro Complex (Optimum Nutrition) shake + one serving of V12 (Sans)

Helpful Tips:

  • Drink only water and never miss meals.
  • Try not to eat until full at each sitting.
  • Pick Sat. or Sun. as a free or cheat day.


Buy groceries once a week and you buy the amount of whichever foods you decide you will use in a week - oatmeal, chicken breasts, turkey breasts, brown rice, green veggies or salads, med. sweet potatoes, oil/vinegar, sliced turkey, peanut butter, apples and pears, almonds unsalted.
