Greetings from the Strength and Mass Holiday

The Strength and Mass Holiday calls for 10 workouts in 5 days. With the option of doing 2 weeks in a row by doing 10 workouts in 5 days then taking 2 days often to rest and recover and follow this up right away with another 10 workouts in 5 days for taking a full 5 days off to rest, recover, rebound and quantify the gains.

After he just got his Before’n’After Pictures Ivan Simic decided to take his game to the next level. And shooting for a 3 week Strength and Mass Holiday. Thats 30 workouts in 19 days.

He started last monday weighing a crisp 97,1kg. As of today – saturday of week 1 – after 5 days of training and 2 days of resting his weight has hit the 104,0 kg mark which is what you see in the pictures above.

The goal of this article is to give you a insight into his eating and training to give you a deeper look into the Strength and Mass Holiday. And gain some inspiration and drive to go through this short, high-frequency program yourself. To build more strength and mass…
