Step 1 - Volume
An important 2018 study by Brad J. Schoenfeld, who works at the Department of Health Sciences, CUNY Lehman College, Bronx, NY, has shown that muscle growth is highly dependent on the number of work sets you perform per week.
In this study, 34 trained men were randomly assigned to 3 groups. Group 1 performed 1 work set per exercise, group 2 performed 3 work sets per exercise, and group 3 performed 5 work sets per exercise.
All groups followed a 8-day training schedule per week for 3 weeks, with each training session followed by a rest day. All participants were followed with regard to their diet to exclude differences between the groups due to diet.
At the end of the study, all groups were found to have improved in strength with a negligible difference with the 5-set group gaining slightly strength.
However, there was a huge difference regarding the volume of the muscles. The 5-set group had grown a lot more compared to the 1 and 3-set group.
You can find the research here: "Resistance Training Volume Enhances Muscle Hypertrophy but Not Strength in Trained Men"
Step 2 - Frequency
A major 1995 study led by JD MacDougall, who works in the Department of Kinesiology, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, found that protein synthesis is elevated for only 36 hours after exercise. After 36, protein synthesis is practically back to baseline.
Because it is not practical to train every muscle group every 36 hours, we have designed this training schedule so that you train every muscle group every 48 hours.
It is of course important that you cause just enough muscle damage so that the relevant muscle group is restored within 48 hours.
Although the training schedule takes this into account, it is important that you monitor yourself that you recover within 48 hours. You may need to subtract a work set or two from your training schedule.
"I have been using this training schedule for about three weeks and I can honestly say it has been one of the hardest three weeks of my life, but it is already worth the changes I've been seeing in my body." - "Chris G."

What does the training schedule E-book look like?
Basics of nutrition
In the end, a body is built in the kitchen. Only 25% of building an athletic body takes place in the gym. It is therefore important that you understand the basic principles of nutrition in addition to a good training schedule and that you can apply this in your own diet.
Without a good diet you will make little or no progress, even with an optimized training schedule like this.
Information about supplements
Although the basis lies with a good diet, it sometimes does not hurt to supplement it with the right supplements.
In this training schedule E-book we mention a number of interesting supplements that can increase protein synthesis and improve your overall condition and mood. Stress and depression are nowadays a clincher for muscle building as it affects your sleep, reduces recovery capacity and increases cortisol levels in the body (cortisol acts cannibalistic on your muscle tissue).
