American Muscle blends the tried and true techniques of powerlifting, bodybuilding and functional fitness to give you the ultimate training program

We use conjugate methods for strength training, bodybuilding theories for building muscle and functional fitness for sustainable conditioning.

Our goal is to improve your existence through training, coaching, and nutrition support. We know that a person who trains hard and eats well while being a part of a likeminded tribe will add quality of life for years to come. That's what we do and that's who we are.

We use a traditional body part split to go deep with each muscle group 1 day at a time, 5 days a week. Broken up by leg day, chest/tricep day, back/bicep day, shoulder day, and arm day (Arm Farm) you're guaranteed to see real results from your consistent effort.

The strength and hypertophy work are the meat and potatoes of our program. The functional conditioning and direct core work are the accessories.

Our coaches are here 24/7 to help you with questions you may have about exercises, equipment, modifications, and even form checks. With over 12 years in the coaching and gym ownership biz, we promise unmatched support.

FAQs
How many days a week is this program?
American Muscle is Monday through Friday. Monday is leg day. Tuesday is chest+triceps. Wednesday is back+biceps. Thursday is shoulders. Friday is Arm Farm. Each week is sprinkled with functional conditioning and core work that compliments each training session.
How long does each session take?
Once you get the warmups dialed in and get comfortable with the flow of the workouts, you should be in and out within 60-75 minutes.
Who is this program for?
First off, this program is for anyone who is willing to show up with intention and consistency. If you are familiar with the big compound movements like the squat, bench, and deadlift, you're going to love this. If not, I am here to help you gain familiarity. You just have to show up.
I train out of my garage. Is that an issue?
If you have a squat rack and a bench, barbell and plates, dumbbells, pull up bar, and bands, you're good to go. If there is a movement that requires a special piece of equipment we will provide modifications for you.
What should I expect on an average training day?
Each training day starts with a specific warmup to prime the main movers. Next we focus on some explosive plyometric movement to enhance our performance. Then we move into 4-6 strength/hypertrophy exercises. And we finish the session with core or conditioning.
What if I don't know what a certain exercise is?
We provide video demonstratins for every exercise along with a description on how to execute the movement. If you ever have a question about a certain movement or need a modification, we are here to help you 24/7.
What happens if I miss a day?
Life happens. If you miss a day, it's not going to derail your progress. Simply get back to the regulary scheduled program as soon as you can. Don't try to make up days or you'll end up stacking them and the stress of trying to "catch up" isn't worth it.
I want to do this but I can't train 5 days a week. What do I do?
If you can train 4 days; do everything but the arm day. If you can only train 3 days, do the leg day (Mondays). Do the back day (Wednesdays). And rotate every other week between chest day (Tuesdays) and shoulder day (Thursdays).
Am I going to get "bulky" on this program?
Bulky vs Lean has everything to do with your nutrition and caloric intake; and some genetics. If you want to get bulky, you can, but it will take eating at a caloric surplus. If you want to get lean, you can, but it will take eating at maintenance or in a caloric deficit.
