My workout consists of a "3-Way Split" routine.
This means that I do 3 separate workouts, during which I work all 22 muscles I intend to work.
I do 6 muscle groups (6 exercises) on Day One; 6 muscle groups (6 exercises) on Day Two; and 10 muscle groups (10 exercises) on Day Three.
These videos allow you to see the following:
- Which exercises I do (which of the "BRIG-20" I most favor)
- How I do them (exercise form)
- How I set them up (bench / machine settings)
- How much intensity I use (percentage of maximum effort / proximity to failure)
- How many sets and reps I do
- How much time I take between sets
You can purchase the entire Workout Split (i.e., the 3 workout days), or you can purchase two muscle groups at a time:
- Pecs and Lats
- Middle Trapezius and Calves
- Glutes and Medial Deltoids
- Anterior Deltoids and Posterior Deltoids
- Triceps and Biceps
- Quadriceps and Upper Trapezius
- Hamstrings and Hip Flexors
- Abs and Erector Spinae ("lower back")
- Obliques and Forearms (flexors and extensors)
- Infraspinatus (external shoulder rotator) and Neck (front and back)

2 Additional Options
The Combo Pack
The Doug Brignole Three-Way Split “Live” Workout
can be combined with the
“Build & Burn” Program,
because they compliment each other.
And discounted, if purchased together.
The Build & Burn is a 14 week Periodization program. It includes a demonstration of 4 different workout structures, which can be used in phases.
It explains the number of sets per muscle group, the number of reps per set, the muscle groupings and workout frequency of each phase.
Nutritional recommendations are also included, as are recommendations for cardiovascular exercise.
The exercises used in this program are the BRIG-20, but alternative exercises are also suggested, including some using elastic bands.
In the Doug Brignole “Live” Workout videos, Doug shows you how he does the Three-Way Split workout (one of the four workouts explained in the “Build & Burn”).
This includes how much intensity he uses, how much weight he uses, how much rest time he takes between sets, the speed of his reps, and what constitutes “perfect form” for each of those exercise.
(Note: Doug has his “favorites” of the BRIG-20, and this series shows him using those favorites. However, other exercises in the BRIG-20 list are also very good, and are not to be dismissed simply because Doug does not use them in this video series.)
These two video programs—the “Build & Burn” and The Doug Brignole “Live” Workout—can be purchased together, at a discounted price.
Separately, the two would cost $450. However, if purchased at the same time, the two programs together are priced $350. That’s a savings of $100.
If it's difficult for you to pay $350 at one time, you can make two payments of $185. This gives you a savings of $80, AND spreads out the two payments one month apart.
Doug Brignole's latest book is in print!
"The Physics of Resistance Exercise"
"When I first heard of Doug Brignole’s book, I thought it would be a useless dissertation by a person with few credentials. Well, let me tell you I was wrong. His book has stretched my brain cells and taught me many new things about exercise…I wish this book had been available in my younger years. It would have improved my training methods."
Dr. Stanley W. Morey, Ph.D. Physiologist
Doug Brignole is a veteran competitive bodybuilder, fitness (“biomechanics”) expert, author and public speaker.
Throughout his competitive career—which spans over 40 years—he has won numerous bodybuilding titles, including 1982 AAU Mr. America (medium tall division) and 1986 AAU Mr. Universe (light heavy weight division).
He has authored numerous magazine articles and co-authored a university sociology book (“Million Dollar Muscle”). His most recent book—“The Physics of Resistance Exercise”—is endorsed by ten PhD professors (i.e., exercise science, physics, neurobiology, biomedical engineering and paleoanthropology), plus three orthopedic surgeons.
He has conducted seminars throughout the US, as well as abroad, including Japan, Mexico, Chile, Brazil and Norway.
