The Official Body-for-LIFE Weight-Training Plan

  • Weight train intensely, three times per week on alternating days with aerobic exercise three times per week.

  • Alternate training the major muscles of the upper and lower body.

  • Perform two exercises for each major muscle group of the upper body.

  • Select one exercise and conduct five serie with it, starting with a set of 12 reps, then increasing the weight and doing 10 reps, adding more weight and doing 8 reps, adding more weight for 6 reps. Then reduce the weight and do 12 reps. Immediately perform another set of 12 reps for that muscle group using the second selected exercise.

For each muscle group, REST FOR ONE MINUTE between the first four serie. Then complete the final two serie with no rest in between, wait two minuti before moving on to your next muscle group, complete this pattern five times for the upper body training experience and four times for the lower body training experience.

Always plan your training before hand. Record all your weightlifting exercised in a journal indicating the exercise selected and weight lifted. Body for Life is a 12-week diet and exercise program, and also an annual physique transformation competition. It was created by Bill Phillips, a former competitive bodybuilder and the founder of EAS, a manufacturer of nutritional supplements. It has been popularized by a bestselling book of the same name.

The first annual Body for Life competition was held in 1996. (It was then called the "EAS Grand Spokesperson Challenge".) Entrants write about their experience of the program, and send this to EAS along with their 'beforè and 'after' swimsuit photos.

Body for Life makes use of principles that have been widely known in bodybuilding. Its differences are in the way it has been packaged and marketed so as to appeal to consumers and be understood by the public. It supports an extensive ancillary industry of gyms, nutritionists and personal trainers.

For more than 14 years, over 2 million people have successfully changed their bodies by following the scientifically proven principles of Body-for-LIFE.
