This is the next stage of bodybuilding workouts to increase strength, gain mass and at the same time to recover before any further training. When exercising according to the present program it is necessary to tighten the diet, since "sparing" training is prevailing.
The training program is ideal for ectomorphs; for other somatotypes less effective. It is effective and significantly superior to its analogues (programs with basic exercises, small number of sets, prolonged recovery).
The results of the program are ensured by basic exercises, performed mainly to strengthen the ligaments (at this stage it is very important). Besides that a set of additional and at the same time extremely necessary exercises are used.
Natural training program is divided into 3 days

*Warm-up not specified
Work out 2-3 times a week. The program does not include deadlift, we haven’t forgotten about it, it just requires regular recovery, otherwise the state of overtraining is guaranteed.
The training scheme is based on "direct" pyramid principle. Recommended rest between sets is 2-4 minutes.
