VO2 Muscle is a hybrid training program designed to produce rapid gains in both muscle size and cardiovascular fitness, without the need to pound your joints with heavy weights, or do endless burpees, jumping jacks, squat thrusts and other exercises you hate doing.
Who Is This Program For?
People who already have a solid base of strength and size, but their cardiovascular fitness is average or even slightly below average. While you might look fit and strong, your fitness levels are lagging behind. You want to be a lot fitter than you are right now, but without losing size or strength.
People who want to improve their health. Studies show that cardiovascular fitness is a potentially stronger predictor of health and longevity than traditional risk factors, including obesity, smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes *. Professor Ulrik Wisløff, the world’s most cited exercise physiologist, describes VO2peak (which puts a number on how fit you are) as the “single best predictor” of your current and future health.
People who want to train for a specific endurance event. VO2 Muscle will get you fit enough to do a sprint duathlon, a sprint triathlon or a 10-mile obstacle run (such as a Tough Mudder). And you’ll be able to do it without having to worry about losing muscle and ending up with a thin, stringy physique.
Here’s what you get with VO2 Muscle:
The VO2 Muscle Manual & Workout Guide
The manual and workout guide show you exactly what to do in the gym, from exercises, sets and reps, to how hard and long each of your cardio sessions should be. Every single training session is laid out for you in advance, removing any confusion or guesswork.
There are also notes included with each workout to remind you what to do. It’s easy to read on a phone or tablet, and you can quickly scroll to each workout to see exactly what you’re supposed to be doing on which day.
Full Email Support
During the entire 12-week program, you’ll have full access to me (Christian Finn) to answer your questions, and guide you through the program.
From alternative exercises to working around injuries to what to do if you’re feeling frazzled or burned out, I can help you tweak and adjust the program so it’s the right fit for you, helping you stay on track to reach your goals.
There are no limits on the number of questions you can ask, nor has this been outsourced to someone pretending to be me. You send me an email, it comes straight through to my personal inbox, and I answer it myself.
What Equipment Will You Need?
Here are the essentials:
- Adjustable dumbbells
- Resistance bands OR a suspension trainer (i.e. TRX, Jungle Gym or gymnastic rings)
- Indoor exercise bike
The weight training part of the program requires adjustable dumbbells, a bench and some resistance bands or a suspension trainer.
For the cardio component, you’ll need access to an indoor exercise bike. While you can do other forms of cardio, one of the cardio sessions does need to be done on an indoor bike.
There’s also some equipment that’s useful but not essential.
Ideally you’ll have a heart rate monitor, be it a smartwatch or one of those straps that goes around your chest. However, I do show you some alternative ways to make sure you’re working at the right intensity level that don’t require a heart rate monitor, so it’s not strictly essential.
A Swiss/stability ball is also nice to have, but you can get by without one.
Is VO2 Muscle Right for You?
VO2 Muscle is not for everyone, so please read the following very carefully.
1. Combining cardio and weights, as long as it’s done in the right way, won’t harm gains in size or strength. However, cardio does have the potential to interfere with the development of power. If you’re an athlete who wants to maximise gains in power, VO2 Muscle isn’t for you.
2. VO2 Muscle doesn’t involve calisthenic exercises like burpees, jumping jacks, mountain climbers or squat thrusts. If that’s the type of thing you enjoy doing, this is not the program for you.
3. VO2 Muscle isn’t for beginners, and you should already be doing some form of resistance training at least twice a week. If you’re just getting started in the gym, this is not for you. If you have any questions about your suitability for the program, you can contact me here.
4. VO2 Muscle is a training program designed for the sole purpose of building muscle and increasing your fitness. There’s no diet or supplement component to it, which you’ll need to handle yourself.
5. VO2 Muscle lasts a total of 12 weeks. The program is divided into three blocks, with each block lasting four weeks. Depending on which variation of the program you use, each workout will last between 45 and 90 minutes, and you’ll be training for around 4-5 hours each week. If that doesn’t fit your schedule, VO2 Muscle is not for you.
6. The VO2 Muscle manual is short (less than 35 pages) and to the point. It shows you exactly what to do and how to do it. But it’s not a scientific review of the research on concurrent strength and endurance training. If that’s the type of thing you’re after, VO2 Muscle is not for you.
Finally, while you don’t require an above-average level of fitness to get started, you will need an above-average level of discipline and consistency, combined with an iron-fisted work ethic.
If you want to be one of those rare individuals who combines a large amount of muscle mass with a high level of endurance and stamina, and you’re serious about putting the work in, please use the button below to get started.
