Richard Duchon, who was born in Austria, moved to the Netherlands when he was younger and still lives there. Richard is a law student as well as a fitness model, fitness YouTuber, and online trainer.
Currently, he is sponsored by the fitness brand, Gymshark.
After the closure of gyms worldwide as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, several fitness YouTubers created at-home workouts. In writing another blog post on these home workouts, I found some of Richard’s videos on YouTube.
In the time before the pandemic, Richard did several gym workouts, which demonstrate his body-part split routine, which I will also cover in this blog post.
Richard’s Social Media
Featured on Fit Media Channel
Richard was featured on Fit Media Channel on YouTube as “The Body of 2019.”
Since that feature, Richard returned to Fit Media Channel to demonstrate workout exercises for the shoulder.
Richard, according to one of his YouTube videos, follows a four-day body-part split workout to suit his goal for a balanced physique.
The two ways of training are full-body training, which is a workout for all muscle groups in every workout. Alternatively, you can do what Richard does, which is to train a muscle group or groups each training day.
Richard’s Workout Split
The workout split is chest and triceps, back and biceps, shoulders and abs, and leg day. Richard takes one day off per week from training.
Chest and Back
Back and Biceps
Shoulders and Abs
For an experienced weight trainer like Richard, the pandemic-caused closure gyms could present a problem. But, gym trainers like Richard created bodyweight workouts to continue their training in the interim period.
The exercises are those exercises I remember in physical education classes in schools I attended in the United States. It shows creativity and resilience to be able to think of alternative exercises rather than just giving up and waiting for more-ideal training days after the pandemic has ended.
Also, I like the idea of relying on bodyweight exercises, as it allows absolute beginners who are interested to start their own fitness journey with the equipment they already have—some space in an apartment or house and their own body weight.
In the bodyweight workouts, Richard performs full-body training as well as performing his workout split with bodyweight exercises. Based on his exercise form, Richard has been able to master his bodyweight in these exercises.
Home Workouts with Weights
Richard also made home workouts with weights.
As I went to law school as well, I respect Richard for being able to attend to the heavy demand of law school while also taking time to take care of his physique and train his clients.
Although a gym trainer, he is well-acquainted with bodyweight exercises. I saw the relative ease he had doing the bodyweight workouts, showing that he has been doing them along with gym training.
I wish Richard continued success.
