Paulo Muzy in his youth.
Paulo’s training revolves around high volume workouts where he’ll do 4 sets of 15 reps per exercise, and sometimes up to 40 sets per training session.
He doesn’t think about the weight, but instead, focuses on proper execution of the exercise, along with feeling the ‘mind-muscle connection’. When he’s bulking, he likes to raise the weight, cardio and the calories he consumes. For cutting, Paulo focuses on rest-pause reps, cluster sets, drop sets and high-intensity interval training, lowering his calories a little bit.
When he’s not in the gym, Paulo focuses on his recovery. This includes getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep, along with doing stretching and going to deep tissue massages.
Paulo’s training sessions usually last for 50 minutes and he tries to complete two workouts a day, from Monday to Friday focusing on different muscle groups. A usual weekly training routine would look like this:
- Morning – Deltoids/ Biceps. Afternoon – Triceps/ Calves
- Morning – Quadriceps/ Abs. Afternoon – Hamstrings/ Calves
- Morning – Back. Afternoon – Pectorals
- Morning – Hamstrings / Abs. Afternoon – Calves/Quadriceps
- Morning – Deltoids/ Triceps. Afternoon – Biceps/Abs
Paulo also likes to complete 20 minutes of low intensity cardio at the end of each workout.
Paulo likes to stay lean for most of the year. To achieve this, he eats an extremely clean diet consisting of lean beefsteak, brown rice, egg white, vegetables, and berries.
Food like avocados, nuts, and olive oil are also an essential part of Paulo’s regimen. These foods provide him with healthy fats that are essential for energy as well as natural testosterone production.
Paulo doesn’t drink alcohol, advising that studies show it’s responsible for 5 to 30% of muscle low. He also monitors his coffee consumption as it causes him anxiety and dehydrates his body which he suggests impairs the effectiveness of his muscle recovery.
