The Bodybuilding Pentathlon

an athletic event comprising five different events for each competitor
The Modern Pentathlon includes such diverse events as fencing, shooting, swimming, riding, and running.  I’m all about versatility, but the Bodybuilding Pentathlon is a bit more streamlined than that.
My goal with this split was to create 5 workouts that all felt like events, in and of themselves.  I absolutely DO recommend taking 2 rest days throughout the week during your time with this split, as the added recovery time will be put to good use.  As such, it’s a great routine for a growth phase.
Designed to kick your ass in 5 easy steps, The Bodybuilding Pentathlon is a great workout program for off-season growth especially Click To Tweet

Workouts here include:

  • Chest Supersets of Death
  • Wide World of Squats
  • Arm Superset Combos
  • Best Shoulder Day Ever
  • Back Insanity

Note:  all workout programs include detailed instructions including number of sets, rep targets/ranges, rest periods, and specific instructions on things to focus on or pay attention to during certain movements.  All workouts also include full video playlists where I demonstrate each move and narrate the key elements to think about.
