Build strength and challenge your endurance with this high intensity strength and HIIT program.

If you like tough workouts, this challenge is for you. I personally think this is one of the most intense challenges we’ve put together. That said, modifications are offered in each workout to make this plan accessible to all fitness levels.

From upper body strength workouts to lower body powerlifting and core conditioning – this monthly workout plan hits every major muscle in the body.

BONUS: our amazing friends The Real Food Dietitians created a FREE 4-Week Summer Meal Plan to accompany this workout plan.

This Four Week Workout Plan and Healthy Eating Meal Plan is all brought to you for FREE thanks to our brands partners — the MN Beef Council and MN Pork Board.

Our MN Beef and MN Pork workouts are known for being some of the most high-intensity workouts on NML. When we asked what you think the most “Holy Bananas” Workouts on NML were, MN Pork and MN Beef workouts topped the lists.

4-Week Workout Program Details

1. Gym Equipment Needed:

A Set of Dumbbells. Most of the daily workouts require a set of dumbbells. Each weight training workout will have a recommended dumbbell weight, usually between 8-20 pounds. You want a weight heavy enough that your last few reps are a struggle, but you are still able to complete the workout with good form.

Optional Exercise Equipment: 

Mini Loop Resistance Band. You can add a resistance band to the leg exercises to increase the intensity. These are the mini loop resistance bands I have (DISCOUNT CODE: NML).

Foam Roller. A great way to release sore muscles post workout or to use on active recovery days.

2. Time Requirement: 

Varies from 20-45 minutes a day, 5-6 days per week. You can always take more rest days as needed!

This plan does include one day per week with a walk/run. If you’re a runner and want to incorporate more running into this full body workout plan, I suggest completing three of the strength training workouts each week:

  • One Leg Day (lower body)
  • One Arm Day (upper body)
  • One Full Body Training Day

You want to strength train your major muscle groups three times per week. Add running on the other days or add a run to arm days if time allows.

3. Fitness Level:

Intermediate to advanced, with modifications offered for all fitness levels. If you’re a fitness beginner try starting with one of our 30-Day Beginner Workout Plans.  

If you need to adjust this plan for pregnancy/postpartum, modifications are noted next to the daily workouts to make this fitness plan accessible for all fitness levels. If I don’t recommend a workout for pregnancy, I’ve linked an alternative, pregnancy-friendly workout.

4. Cost:

FREE! No sign up needed, this is a FREE Monthly Workout Plan.

This 4-Week Workout Program is for Anyone Looking to:

  • Increase strength in the upper body, specifically the arms, biceps, triceps, shoulders and chest muscles.
  • Build muscle in the lower body and leg muscles, specifically the quads, hamstrings and glutes.
  • Improve athletic and cardiovascular fitness level.
  • Burn calories, lose weight and burn fat at home.

Learn more about how refueling with high-quality, complete proteins like beef and pork, helps aid in muscle recovery: 

  • A 3-ounce serving of lean beef provides 25 grams of high-quality protein, which is the optimal amount to help active individuals recover from exercise.
  • Similarly, a 3-ounce serving of lean pork is an excellent source of protein, selenium, vitamin B-6, zinc and beta-alanine (form of amino acid found in pork and a crucial element in muscle development).
