Renato is also a big fan of high training volume; he’ll sometimes do over 30 sets per workout. This is his favorite technique for growing muscle fast.
However, if he wants to increase his strength, Renato will have one workout per week where he’ll do 3-5 reps a set with heavy weights. This enables him to grow stronger in all of his major lifts – including the bench press, squats, and deadlifts.
To stay at a one-digit body fat percentage, Renato does cardio on a treadmill or stationary bike. He makes use of HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) when he needs to save time and burn extra calories.
