The training program to harden muscles includes three specific exercises for each of the important muscles of the body, and each of these three exercises includes five stages, and the trainee must use the maximum weight he can bear during the first three stages with re-training 8 to 12 times in each stage. As for the remaining two phases, the trainee moves gradually towards lighter weights with re-training at each stage from 12 to 20 times, depending on the endurance’s ability to endure. The break between each exercise and another will be between one to three minutes, with the need to rest between each stage and another from half a minute to a minute, to avoid muscle fatigue and the ability to continue exercises until the last stage.
