Before you get ed into a trend — think back and try to remember why you got into strength training to begin with. Didn’t you dream of packing on slabs of muscle? Or a ton of strength? Or maybe you were like me and really wanted to get big, veiny, sleeve tearing, girl seducing arms.
I also happen to have enormous arms. Aside from the Mr. Clean jabs, I get asked by dudes like yourself everyday how I got my physique.
But it wasn’t always this way. In fact, I used to be a soft, fat guy; The weight room saved my life.
At 28 years old, I was 50lbs overweight working as a creative director for an ad agency — I needed a change — so, in the four months leading up to my wedding, I lost 51lbs.
It wasn’t until I looked at the pictures from my honeymoon that I thought, “this still isn’t what I want to look like; I’m not fat anymore but I still look like crap.”
I read everything I could on working out and nutrition. I put in tons of hard work and it paid off. My doctor even asked me if I was on steroids. (I wasn’t and never have been.)
I did all of this before I trained a single person. I always figured you had to ‘walk the walk’ before telling others what to do. Now my guns have become a part of me. Everywhere I go it seems to be a show. I catch girls looking up from their phones (probably texting their boyfriends) to check out my sleeve popping, vein bursting, should-be-illegal gun show.
How do the 5% do it? They know the importance of finding a great program and sticking to it. These 5% understand the need to progress in their workouts. They know that doing the same thing, the same way, over and over again will stop yielding results.
In order to get to Swolesville you need to stop making the same mistakes that most guys make. Personally, I can’t walk into the gym without seeing the following:
I don’t know about you but I always dreamed about having big arms. The type that would make my friends jealous and have girls turning their heads. So, after 100s of clients, over 142 research papers, and putting myself through all kinds of torture, I cracked the code.
My Supercompensation Slingshot™ works on the same principle but is much safer and won’t make you life or puppies — unless you’re a cat guy and already puppies. If that’s the case, then this will make you cats. If you already cats and puppies, well — I got nothing. In this program you will train with more volume on your guns than you probably ever have before. You won’t ignore your other body parts, they’re going to be put into maintenance mode for the time being.
Instead of harsh dietary interventions, I’ll be changing the training to deplete your glycogen with a concept called overreaching (planned overtraining, done safely). After a period of planned rest your arms will slingshot back and grow bigger than you ever thought possible. You might have to cut some s in your sleeves.
This workout doesn’t act like one of those “lose weight fast” gimmicks that has you losing 5lbs of water weight in a week. The slingshot is a powerful mechanism but it takes time. For the 4 weeks of the program you may not gain any size. In fact you will probably lose strength.
After the 4 weeks the Supercompensation Slingshot™ starts to do its work. Starved for glycogen the brain sends frantic signals to the muscle to grow as quickly as possible to adapt to the ulative stress it just went through. Eat right, lean back, relax, and enjoy the sleeve popping.
His approach to strength and conditioning is a unique combination of the deliberate application of cutting edge exercise science and experience based on hundreds of hours of face-time training clients. Being a strength coach is an interesting profession as you need to understand to the science of training but without having put in the hands on time coaching, applying those principles you wouldn’t be able to apply the training nuances that allow your clients to get the extra 10-15% changes in their bodies that they couldn’t get elsewhere.
