6. Try the MAX Muscle Plan by Brad Schoenfeld

Getting a PT is fine but for the most part, they just run you thru generic programs. You'll end up paying thousands for anybody who's truly a world class trainer and not some flunky who just got an online certification. Group classes are fine but again, just run of the mill extended cardio sessions to make you sweat and feel like you did something (and in truth, you do).

I found the MAX Muscle Plan to be very good. It's 8 months of training plans, not customized to YOU per se (nothing is without something actually giving you personal training). But it goes thru all the major exercises. The examples in the book are comprehensive. There's no supplement pushing. No crazy workouts.

It's evidence based. Quite good. Much better than the fluf you find on my websites that just rehash some guy's routine that no normal person would ever do.

I've done hundreds of workout programs and had a few PTs myself. But this plan was pretty good. It covers all the bases.

You can find it on Amazon, probably elsewhere. Not expensive. Lacks in nutrition but it's a training book (plan) and while it does cover nutrition, it's not that detailed about it. You could use the plan with almost any nutrition plan though.
