Final Notes on the Creed Inspired Workout Program

The 8 week program listed above was inspired by the fictional character Adonis Creed who is portrayed by Michael B. Jordan.

If your goal is to get shredded like Adonis will be in his fight against Drago, it’s a solid template to work off of.

What you do with your diet and sleep outside of the gym will make or break your progress with this routine. Make sure you are getting enough calories and carbs to fuel your workouts. And make sure you’re getting enough protein and carbs to recover from your workouts.

Eat that amount of calories for your first 4 weeks of this workout and monitor your results. If your goal is to achieve fat loss and get shredded, and you haven’t noticed a difference at the 4 week mark, you may benefit from dropping your calories by subtracting 250-500 calories from your intake.

If your goal is to put on weight and you haven’t noticed a difference after 4 weeks, bump up your calories by adding 250-500 calories to your intake.

Lastly, you need to sleep to put on muscle mass and burn fat. Make sure you’re getting around 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night. This will help your muscles repair and improve your performance inside and outside of the gym.
