Urs Kalecinski Workout Plan

Figure 1: Urs is perhaps one of the most-improved bodybuilders of the past year, and it all comes down to his workout routine and diet.

Urs Kalecinski swears by the push-pull-legs split. Following a PPL split allows him to allocate his attention evenly, as he can focus on specific muscle regions extensively. 

Working closely with his trainer, Coach Kienzl, Urs has crafted a training philosophy designed to take him to the top.

One of the few insider tips that Urs believes in training hard and slow, focusing on the form of each rep, and pushing each muscle to failure.

The push-pull-legs split also allows him to train each muscle group twice a week, which means he can add a tremendous amount of volume to each workout.

Here’s what a typical week of training looks like for the Kuwait Pro champ:

Day 1: Push

Urs likes to kick things off with a push workout. He only trains this muscle group once a week, as he is trying to focus on building muscle in his back at the moment. Nevertheless, he still goes all in on push days. Here’s what a push workout looks like for Kalecinski:

Urs Kalecinski Diet Plan

While chicken, rice, and broccoli are a trusted choice amongst bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts alike, you’re going to need more than that if you want to make it to the top of the ladder. Urs Kalecinski understands this and has chalked out an extensive diet plan for himself. 

For as exhaustive as his diet plan is, it’s just as versatile. This means that he can alter portion sizes and servings to cater to his needs, depending on whether he’s on an off-season bulk or trying to trim some fat in time for his shows.

Here’s what a full day of eating looks like for him:

Meal 1

  • Oats – 80g
  • 8 egg whites
  • 2 whole eggs
  • Blueberries and Raspberries – 120g
  • Calorie intake: 672.48 Calories

Meal 2

Urs’ pre-workout meals are typically rich in carbs, as this gives him the energy he needs to go all-in at the gym. He tends to avoid fats before working out as this makes his meals heavier, causing him to feel sluggish and lethargic.

  • Rice flakes – 80g
  • Raspberries – 120g
  • Whey protein isolate – 50g
  • Calorie intake: 530.3 Calories

Meal 3

Urs prefers an easy-to-cook meal after his training session, as he’s usually quite tired after his workout. Here’s what his post-workout meal consists of:

  • Corn flakes – 100g
  • Whey protein isolate – 50g
  • Calorie intake: 528.5 Calories

Meals 4, 5, and 6

These three meals are the same with a few minor rotations. He typically likes eating chicken or beef, and sometimes fish. The variety in his diet keeps him from getting bored of his food choices, and he usually switches between protein sources depending on his mood. Kalecinski also makes it a point to include an assortment of veggies in his midday meals. 

  • Rice – 70g
  • Chicken/Beef/Fish – 150g
  • Vegetables – 100g
  • Calorie intake: 431.7 Calories each.

Meal 7

This is Urs’ last meal of the day. It is completely carb-free, as fats induce better sleep. From an assortment of proteins and fats, here’s what Kalecinski chose:

  • 8 egg whites
  • 1 whole egg
  • Avocado – 100g
  • Calorie intake: 366.28 Calories

You can also check out his 3500-calorie diet and a bonus push workout in this video on his youtube channel.

Figure 2: Urs eats a lot to retain muscle mass and stay big. As such, eating 3500 calories a day is a necessity.

Urs Kalecinski’s Favorite Supplements

Kalecinski has gone on record to express his love for VAYU Nootropic. He said that he particularly loves the fact that it can support his high-intensity training style, without having any stimulants in it. 

The use of high-quality, patented ingredients and formulas, all of which have been tested in the field, gives him the assurance he needs to consume it. It also helps that his coach, Stefan Kienzl, is one of the heads of the brands. After all, a master would only want the best for his apprentice. 

From the wide array of products available, here are Kalecinski’s favorites:

  • Meta+: For metabolism activation in the morning.
  • Nitro: For a pre-workout pump boost.
  • Nootropic: For cognitive enhancement and added focus before workouts.
