The 22 Day Guitar Workout (NO REST)

Are you ready for a guitar workout challenge that is suitable for everyone from beginner to advanced? In this video, I’m going to show you a simple yet effective guitar workout routine that you can do for the next 22 days straight. It's so effective that it is going to help you in the most vital playing areas plus give you a jump start on getting your neck awareness, chords and rhythm up to a whole new level...

There are just 5 exercise areas in this guitar workout, each one hitting the top playing areas from each of their primary functions.

So, ask yourself... what are you doing for the next 22 days? I hope you’ll try what I show you here, because I’ve put together a 22 day guitar workout that simplifies everything.

We’re going to focus on what really counts in a guitar practice approach for players who don’t have a lot of time.


This practice routine will focus on organizing a schedule, as well as, the development of a daily cycle of work. 

The direction will be centered around playing through a 25 min. routine, and as you study you’ll want to lay out the longer term practice of this routine for 22 days.

As mentioned the routine itself will be 25 min. long and it will include; a finger exercise, a scale pattern rehearsal, a melody drill, a chord review and a rhythm comprehension drill.

After that, if you have time left over, the suggestion will be to use any remaining time to study a song that you’re working on.

So, let’s get started with our routine for this 22 day workout.

The first thing that I want you to do is organize the routine based around a schedule. 

I always like to create practice schedules, because I find that they’re the best way to keep on track with what you’re studying.

In setting up a practice routine, the first thing you’ll need to think about is the layout of your subjects. 

And, because we’re keeping everything simple, our subjects will only have one topic per study segment, and we’ll base things around five segments, operating in 5 min. chunks of time.

Sample Schedule:

The first topic will be a warm up finger exercise, next will be a scale pattern, the next idea will be a melody drill and then, a chord review and finally a rhythm drill.

Now, one other thing I like to do with these 25 min. workouts is have the tempo move from a slower pace up into a faster range and then slow down once again into the completion of the cycle.

It’s like a physical workout moving from a slow pace into intensity, then moving back down again to a cool down phase. So, with the practice routine’s schedule out of the way, let’s shift gears now over to actually doing the routine.

Exercise Topics: 

Topic 1).
Warm-up drill finger exercise. Move all over the neck.

Topic 2).
Scale Pattern exercise. Learn and then move into several other locations.

Topic 3).
Melody drill: Learn this melodic phrase and then relocate it to a few other lateral locations along the fingerboard.

Topic 4).
Chord Review: Learn this key of "D" lateral chord exercise using the "I, IV, V" chord degrees performed across the neck.

Topic 5).
Rhythm Drill: Perform this 2-bar rhythm drill at the tempo indicated. Match the duration and feel so that the phrase is as perfect as possible. Move it to a few other notes, then try performing the groove on a chord or two.

In the beginning you may find it difficult to complete each topic in a 5 min. time frame. 

That's perfectly fine, realize that you'll quite likely need to build up to the ability and skill level in order to complete the topic within 5 min.

As you get better (and your skills improve), 5 min. might not even be required, (it may be too much time - more than you need).

Alright so there you have it, again it’s simple - we’ve eliminated a lot of detail to create a focused workout that targets a number of key playing areas.

Now, the next step is to actually do this and doing workouts that are more targeted tend to not exactly be easy.

They require discipline and dedication to get through. They’ll be days where you don’t feel like practicing but just do it anyway.

It’s only 25 min. and you’ll burn through these studies one after another across the collection of 5 min. intervals – making it feel like the work will go by quickly.

Parting Thoughts:
And, as many of you already know, nothing worth having comes easy. It always takes effort to achieve. So, give this 22 day workout a try, no matter what ability level that you are.

Push your way through and if it seems difficult in the beginning, then just keep working your way up to reach your goal levels as the days progress.
