How To Lose Fat and Build Muscle : My 4 Day Workout Split

It’s finally here, the gym schedule you have all been waiting for! I’ve finally decided to share my 4 day workout split as I feel that I’ve been consistent enough to get to know it and pass it over to y’all.

My 4 Day Workout Split

I’m no expert nor personal trainer but when I say that these exercises right here have changed, and are still changing my body entirely! I have included a mix of weight training and cardio to create a perfect calorie burning, muscle building combo!

At first I was determined to workout 6 times a week, but the more I tried to be consisted, the less consistent I was! Soooo, I reduced it to 4 days and I’m very happy!
Setting realistic goals for yourself is always important. IF you set the bar too high, you’re more likely to give up.

Cardio

Since the goal is to lose fat and build muscle, we need to incorporate a decent amount of cardio to burn those calories! Now, the cardio doesn’t need to be scrambling for air’ level intense but, I think at least 20 minutes per workout is good enough, right?

So what do I do?

To start my workout, I walk on a steady high incline for about 5-10 minutes (depending on how I’m feeling that day). Don’t be fooled by the word “steady”, you’ll be sweating buckets regardless, I assure you!

To end the workout, I’ll either walk on an incline again for another 10-15 minutes or spend that same time on the stair master.

Honestly, if you told me a few months ago that I’d be walking on the stair master for 15 minutes, FOUR times a week, I’d call you ridiculously insane! But practice makes perfect. Do as much as you can overtime to build up your strength and endurance. Then eventually who knows; you could make it to 30 minutes a day! Well that’s the goal at least…

So, let’s get into my 4 day workout split at the gym!

I have to say, always start light with the barbell squats. Quality over quantity- your form is the most important factor here.
