  1. will be starting your myx8 workout this week, makes perfect sense, as im getting back into training had 1year out due to injury. and before my injury i was doing something very similar. will keep you posted as i will do the routine for at least 3months if not more depending if i platue , which there for i will swap exercises for another compound movement i.e incline for flat and barbel rows for one arm etc.

    • That sounds like a great approach, Alistair. It’s good to hear that you’ll give the program ample time to see results before modifying anything — Many people don’t have that kind of patience and want to change things right away.

      I look forward to hearing how you progress over the coming weeks and months. Keep me posted.

  2. Hey Alex. I’m getting back to training after 18 months or so and I’m really looking forward to trying your MYx8 routine workout. I just had one question though, will it be a problem if I continue doing my abs workout alongside this one? If not, then have you got a better suggestion?

    • It most certainly will, Jon. Just make sure you follow the program as laid out–plus, eat right and get good sleep. I talk about all these things in eBook, which you’ll get after signing up.


      • Hi Alex,
        Can i add standing & seated calf raises to the Myx8 routine twice a week on Monday & Friday?
        My calfs suck & i would like to train them. How many sets & reps shld i be doing for these calf exercises?

        • Sure just put them at the end of the routine. Do 3×5 heavy standing calf raises (even though you’re going heavy, keep full range of motion and controlled reps). Do 3×12-15 seated calf raises (don’t bounce out of the bottom).

    • Hi Trent,

      I looked through the files on my computer, and I found a spreadsheet that I created a while back for MYx8. It doesn’t have the tracking or or volume calculations, but it’s decent for logging your weights/sets week by week.

      Check your email, I sent you a copy.


    • Hi Simeon,

      Yes you can implement ab training on Monday and Friday. Just be sure you do it at the end of the workouts. Check your email for the spreadsheet.

      • Thanks a lot.
        My problem is that I began w/ split training. I am training for like 4 months or something now and started to train like 6x/week but a month and a half ago my gains did stall. The other problem is that I always did 4×12. So my strength is really lacking. Do you think that my strength will develop with this program? Ofcourse w/ the right diet..
        Btw nice site. There are many instructive articles.

        • Thanks Simeon, glad you’ve found my site helpful! Yes, I think this will do the trick for you. It’ll give you lower reps with heavier weight to help bring your strength up. And at this point in your training, 3 days a week is plenty. Better than the 6 days of training you were doing before.

  3. Hi Alex
    I’m 55yrs old would this program be good for me I ask this because I thought squats and deadlifts would be to much on CNS on the same day plus I’ve been training for yrs nothing to show for it probably I’m program hopping all the time but seeing this program seems very good so I will stick to this

    • Hi Robert,

      The intensity and combined volume of the deadlifts and squats isn’t so much that it would be overwhelming. It shouldn’t be a problem at all, since you’ve been training for years and sounds like you have a decent base level of fitness — even if you’re not exactly where you’d like to be in terms of goals.

      Like you touched upon, though, a major key to success on this (or any other) program is adherence. Since you realize this and are committed to sticking to it, I think you’ll see great results! Enjoy the program.
