How Does The Program Work?
This 12 week body transformation program avoids the monotony of basic training and instead goes for a phase approach. In Boss Prime you’ll find 3 distinct phases, each with their own individual targets that push you towards your end goal of a leaner, more muscular physique.
Each phase follows uses full body workouts that cover every major muscle group. What we like is that Boss Prime uses the latest research on weekly training volume to avoid the cliche ‘muscle split’ approach
This is explained in lots more detail in the training guide that comes with the program.
Phase 1: Priming
In this first block of training you’ll be tackling the gym with 3 workouts each week. Using a balanced program with large muscle, compound exercises, the aim is to dust off the cobwebs and build serious foundations of fitness.
You’re priming your nervous system, muscles and metabolic response with fast-paced strength training that’ll start to harden up those muscles that’ve started to get weak and flabby.
Phase 2: Building
In the building phase there’s only one goal… to boost muscle mass and strength as much as possible. Following a full body approach once more, Darrin tells you to grit your teeth, get comfortable with heavy weights and start to hit your workouts with full force and effort.
This is a more challenging phase but still allows you to go at your own pace if needed.
Phase 3: Revving
Why do Boss call this the revving phase? Well, it’s time to accelerate your metabolism to full throttle as you switch your training up to maximize fat burning.
This final block of workouts sees the biggest shift in pace as you take the rep range up and throw in some brutally high volume workouts. It’s all about stripping back the fat, optimizing conditioning and peaking your fitness.
It’s all about uncovering the work you’ve been putting in for the last 12 weeks. It’s time to see what you’ve created.
What about the results?
After completing this program we saw some great results. Our chest, shoulders, arms and legs were showing significant improvements in muscle mass. Our abs were tighter and leaner and energy levels were off the chart.
Endurance was good and general cardio felt easier too. Even stamina away from the gym (let’s just say ‘bedroom time’) was better too – not only a boost in libido, but performance as well.
We we’re commited throguhotu and that’s why we got results. We’re not sure how well you’d do if you cam at this half-hearted.
Who Is Boss Prime For?
Prime is designed for any man over 40 that wants to reclaim the muscle, strength, athleticism and energy of his youth. The kind of guy that refuses to let their age define them and won’t be defeated.
You might have some experience of strength training but have had time off. Or you might be completely new to weight lifting but are willing to give it your all.
Even if you regularly hit the gym, already have decent muscle mass and just want some new ideas on training from one of the best trainers in the US, Boss Prime is your number one choice.
The best thing about Boss Prime is that it’s versatile. It allows you to choose your starting point and work around a program that suits your own fitness levels. This means you can make it as easy or as hard as you want to.
And because each phase progresses in intensity and volume, you’re always going to get stronger, fitter and leaner.
Most guys in their forties and fifties will have grown up on split training. Those workouts where you train one muscle per workout in a ‘chest day’ and ‘leg day’ style approach.
For that reason you might be disappointed at first to learn that you’ll not be using that program in Boss Prime.
But science has moved on… for the better.
But let us tell you this – full body workouts are far superior for fat loss and muscle building. Not only is the research pretty clear on the benefits of total body workouts over splits, the best coaches know this.
Truly the best workout program for guys over 40 we’ve ever seen
The older guy market is pretty buys. There’s plenty to choose from and to an extent, many of these programs work.
But Boss Prime is the most comprehensive, detailed and effective program you’ll find. It slams the competition to the floor purely based on the program itself, let alone with the training and nutrition guides and meal plan.
How Much Does Boss Prime Cost?
If you were to hire a trainer like Darrin you’d be looking at thousands of dollars for a 12-week block.
Boss Prime brings you the best coaching, resources and body transformation tools for just $90 (£65 if you’re in the UK).
That might sound like a lot. But look at it like this. Firstly, you most definitely get what you pay for. It’s not just the program itself but the tons of resources you’re getting with it.
Secondly, $90 wouldn’t even buy you a week’s training with a run-of-the-mill trainer at your local gym. Let alone one of the best in the US.
factor that in and it’s an unbelievable price for 3 full months of training.
And whats more – once you’ve bought it, it’s yours for life. You can return to the program over and over if you like – or come back to it if you have to take a break.
