Maximum Muscle is the hardest protocol Abel has ever invented, and one of the most difficult in the 20-year history of Bodybuilding.com. If you’ve tried any of the programs in Abel’s 30-Day body-part series

Building muscle isn’t easy. Even to add a few new pounds of lean mass takes hard work, dedicated eating, and the discipline to say “yes” and “no” to the right behaviors at just the right times.
But what if you want to take it to the next level, and achieve your maximum muscular potential? You’ll need a true test of willpower, discipline, and pain tolerance—and Abel Albonetti has it. Say hello to Maximum Muscle: 9-Week Advanced Training for Gains.
In fact, it’s a “greatest hits” collection of the workouts from those series, only arranged to match the split that Abel uses in his own training. So rather than hit shoulders or chest twice a week, you’ll hit it just one—but hard.
“I’ll bring lots of volume, crazy dropsets, and hit every muscle group from every angle. The pumps are unbelievable,” Abel promises.

Every single workout in this program is unique—no repetition. That’s why each workout day also comes with its own video where Abel explains exactly what to do.
And no, you don’t need any special equipment to make this program work, but you’ll use pretty much everything in a standard gym. This includes:
– Body weight
– Machines (hack squat, leg press, standard upper-body pressing and pulling machines)
– Resistance bands
– Blood flow restriction bands
You’ll use some of these in ways you probably haven’t before, so watching each day’s video is a must.
Every week, you’ll hit the gym 5-6 days a week, using this schedule:
– Monday: Chest
– Tuesday: Back
– Wednesday: Legs
– Thursday: Shoulders
– Friday: Arms
– Saturday: Legs (only weeks 1, 3, 5)
Here’s what’s up with the leg programming. Weeks 1, 3, and 5, you’ll perform two leg workouts: one with a quad focus on Wednesday, and one with a glute and hamstring focus on Saturday. The next Wednesday (Weeks 2, 4, and 6), you’ll hit just one leg workout that will hammer the entire leg. On those weeks, you get Saturday off, or you can use it for some cardio, active rest, or to give extra attention to a different muscle group you’d like to bring up.
