Welcome back to Workout Review. This week we’re going to be reviewing a “Buff Dudes”  workout. “Buff Dudes” is a YouTube channel run by two brothers that are all about getting buff. I’ve been watching these guys for about four years now and it’s been nothing but joy. They have amazing energy and they’re super inspirational. The “Buff Dudes” taught me almost everything I know about working out and nutrition, I’d definitely give them a look. But it’s time for a workout video we’re going to be reviewing their chest and triceps workout, well one of many. The workout will be located at the bottom. 

This workout consists of low-volume, high reps which is typically how I workout. I’ve never actually done this custom workout before, so excited to see how it’s going to go. Time to hit the gym! 

This workout was very generic. It’s a workout that gets the job done and gets the job done well. However, I didn’t feel excited to go to the next set. It’s six major lifts but I tack on cardio and abs because I am doing a cut at the moment. Although I’m not a fan of this workout, I believe it’s a great introduction into moving major muscle groups. It’s all the key muscles and it gives you a good pump and can make you quite sore if you work hard.  I personally don’t feel terribly sore. I have a deep pinch in my chest which is nice but it’s nothing major.

 Overall I give this work out of 5/10. It was lackluster, and I was not excited to push myself like I was with Arnold’s workout last week.
