Ernane Guimaraes enjoys training with high volume for muscle growth. He firmly believes that by doing many sets and reps, he induces the biggest anabolic (muscle-building) response.

However, during contest prep, Ernane will switch to a low-volume training. This means he’ll reduce the weight and the number of reps and sets.

By not going too hard during the preparations, Ernane helps preserve his muscle mass. He also reduces the risk of an injury, which is the last thing he wants before a contest.

A total-body training routine for Ernane would involve exercises like:

  • Bench press
  • Pull-ups
  • Upright row
  • Leg press
  • Incline dumbbell press
  • High-to-low cable fly
  • Barbell squat
  • Reverse dumbbell fly
  • Dumbbell overhead press
  • Bicep curl

All of these fundamental movements are crucial to build and maintain muscle and carve out a shredded physique, just like Ernane’s.

When Ernane was just getting into bodybuilding, he was still learning the nuts and bolts of nutrition. He tried to eat healthily but often slipped up in terms of his diet, because he didn’t have enough knowledge.

But once he became more experienced, Ernane’s diet improved too, allowing him to take his physique to the next level.

Even though Ernane still eats an odd cheat meal sometimes, his diet mostly consists of clean foods; such as chicken, brown rice, broccoli, and sweet potatoes.
