Bodybuilding: Beyond the Basics
I don't know a single serious lifter who doesn't want to build more muscle. It doesn't matter if you consider yourself a bodybuilder or not. Most people get into lifting to look better. Sure we might also pick up other lifting pursuits (such as getting stronger) but at our core, we still want to look good. To look better you need to add more muscle to your frame. Muscle gives proportion and shape to the way your body looks.
There is NO way around it. If you want to look more aesthetic, you need to add more muscle. Armed with this goal in mind of building our best physique, we go into the gym. Several times per week, every week, for years. We sweat, we push ourselves and through this continous process, we begin to look better. Somewhere along the way however, the gains start to slow down. Our physique looks similar year after year. We push ourselves at the gym yet start to make almost no changes to our body.
So where do we go wrong? Have we reached our limit?
The short answer is lack of good information available to us. The old recommendations found in bodybuilding magazines don't apply to natural lifters. What works for the really jacked guy at your gym (who might be taking something you aren't) probably won't work for you. Doing 3 sets of 10 on the bench press, week after week won't cut it past your newbie phase. So most of us make decent progress, hit that wall of not knowing where to go next and either stagnant or give up.
But it doesn't have to be that way.
What if there was a way to sort through all the bullshit? Put the science back into bodybuilding. Take a methodical, evidence based approach, with a health dose of practical experience and create a rock solid program? Something that would be easy to use, customizable and take your training to the next level?
Well guess what skippy, that's exactly what we have for you today.
We've joined forces with a man highly respected in the lifting community, Alberto Nunez, to create the most comprehensive bodybuilding program out there. Forget those tired old bodybuilding magazine routines. Let's talk about rep ranges, exercise variation, progression schemes, extensive exercise tutorials and more. Let's put the science (and results) back into bodybuilding. Let's explain everything thoroughly and clearly so you know EXACTLY what you need to do to get more results.
Our goal is to help you get to your goal. To build a more aesthetic, porportioned and muscular physique.
Our bodybuilding program is like no other out there. It is designed to work with everyone. You don't need amazing genetics; just the discipline to put in the work. Whether you are a strength athlete or just someone that wants to look better, building a respectable physique is a goal all of us share. If you are tired or not seeing the results you deserve, get our Bodybuilding Program. You won't be disappointed.
I have set out to create a toolbox for the intermediate trainee. Over the long term, my hopes are that this guide doesn’t solely amount to progress in the weight room. Instead, I believe that these principals can be of good use to you long after the program has run its course. The goal of this program is to not be “a program”. Instead, it will be a set of principals that you can conveniently extract from in order to create something that is optimal… because it’s sustainable. A program that is both optimal and sustainable is not an oxymoron. In fact, when you plan (eh, program) your training, we learn to accept the notion that we are not living in a vacuum. We must plan around an athlete’s psyche, genetics, and environment in order to avoid “falling off” while doing as little backtracking as possible. In my 18 years of training, I have yet to have a month that was “perfect” in any way, shape, or form. I have yet to have a year that was not progressive in some manner, either. In the end, it all adds up. If you are reading this and you’ve had issues with “falling off”... I am sure that you can relate. Do you ever think to yourself, “Man, if only I had been a bit more patient and stuck with it?”Don’t worry; I got you…I got you!
