Greg Plitt and his workout videos are world famous. If you want motivation to get to the gym, all you have to do is look at Greg's physique and listen to him speak. The word "Intensity" still doesn't do enough to describe the man, the legend, Greg Plitt. Greg has been declared America's Top Male Fitness Model for more reasons than one. It doesn't matter who you talk, if the topic involved male fitness models or best physiques, Greg Plitt's name is always first to come up. In fact, he currently has a modelling streak going where Greg has been on the cover of at least one fitness magazine every month for the past 4 1/2 years. But Greg doesn't just do fitness magazine covers. He has also graced the cover of 25 romance novels. Lets just put it this way, if more males had the intensity and dedication to follow the Greg Plitt Workout program, the world be filled with ripped guys!

Greg Plitt started as an All American Wrestler, moved on to Become an Army Ranger, then Became America's Top Male Fitness Model

Greg has been living the fitness lifestyle since his days in high school. He was a very successful wrestler and actually became an All American. Greg wasn't just a jock though, he also sported a 4.0 GPA. This eventually helped Greg get recruited to West Point where he spent five years of service as Captain, Airborne Ranger, and commander of 180 people.


It's not hard to believe Greg was honored with the ranking of being 1 of America's Top 25 Fittest Americans. He was also the winner of the 2009 Star Physique Award for being the guy with the best physique on television. Greg's also very marketable. He's a sponsored athlete with sports supplement company, Met-Rx, as well as starring in several commercials for Under Armour, Gold's Gym, Old Spice, Dodge Ram Trucks, ESPN, and PETA.


If you're wondering who that ripped to shreds guy is that is killing it at the gym at's Greg. By going to the gym first thing in the morning, Greg can be sure he gets his workout in. It also gives him a leg up on the competition as his energy levels are on a high while most people are still sleeping.

Greg's workout routines always change as he never lets his body adapt to his training. He follows a 5 day training split where he trains a different muscle group every day. However, he'll never do the same routine twice. For example, if he does a machine press this week, he'll change it up next week by using dumbbells or barbells.

Greg hit his abs hard with an intense 10-15 min training session after his workout.


Day 1:
Chest/Abs (AM)
Cardio: 45 mins of laps in the pool (PM)
Day 2:
Back/Calves (AM)
Day 3:
Shoulder/Abs (AM)
Cardio: 5 mile run (PM)
Day 4:
Arms/Abs (AM)
Cardio: 45 mins of laps in the pool (PM)
Day Five:
Legs/Abs (AM)

After this 5 day cycle is complete, Greg moves right back to Day 1.
