The Sylvester Stallone Expendables Workout
Today we’re in the gym with Sylvester Stallone for a full body workout straight out of The Expendables training routine.
If you’re looking to build lean muscle while torching fat you’re in the right place to do just that – because today’s workout is going to be intense.
This allows you to get the best of both worlds as you build muscle & burn body fat in the gym with Rocky himself.
Today’s workout is split into four phases.
Each of them are very challenging in different ways.
Every phase should be performed as a circuit and repeated for the prescribed number of rounds before you move onto the next.
The Sylvester Stallone Expendables workout is not going to “go light” on you in any way but, then again, you’d probably be disappointed if it did, right?

High Intensity Rules
One of the original pioneers of high intensity interval training, this “nonstop” method has been Sylvester Stallone’s approach to gym work for many decades now and is one of the key reasons he has been able to maintain a consistently lean physique over the years.
Whether you are trying to figure out how to build muscle or lose weight, there are many benefits to be had with this style of training, making it suitable for both men and women.
That’s right, even if you’re not training to build muscle you will notice fantastic results.
Many people (particularly women) may notice the focus on low reps and be a little afraid that it’s designed to help you bulk up.
That’s okay, it always pays to be a little afraid when you go to the gym…
You needn’t worry, though.
Even if you’re training with a similar approach to a bodybuilder you’d need to be packing away some serious calories in order to gain size with a workout of this intensity, so put any fears of that to the back of your mind.
If you’re ready to push your body to the limits with this full body blasting routine you won’t be disappointed with the results you are able to achieve.
