Gaining lean muscle tissue is never as simple as it seems, but there are some sure fire ways for increasing your rates of progress. You spend maybe an hour per day in the gym at the most so the other 23 hours must set the table for your success. The right raw materials are needed frequently and in the correct amounts to provide the building blocks needed for muscle growth. Experienced trainees especially must take advantage of all opportunities as gains are harder to come by as the physique matures.

Our goal is to promote gains in muscle and not an over abundance of fat. Eating the right foods at specific times along with proper exercise can effectively feed the muscle. Many of our clients often times lose body fat without even trying just by cleaning up the diet in general with a large amount of clean food and supplementation. How is this possible? Activating anabolic hormones with the right nutrition strategies have a potent fat burning impact. Gauge your progress with objective measurements and body fat % tests (calipers preferably) every 4-6 weeks.

1. Eat Often

Consuming large quantities of the proper food choices is a step in the right direction, but eating and supplementing more frequently is a lost art which is vital for success. Very few people have the ability to sit down and eat 6-7 meals per day, but everyone can manage at least 4 in my experience with any kind of effort. Between meals you want to use portable snacks such as raw nuts, powerbutter high protein peanut butter, organic jerky, DigestA+Lean Protein and at certain times fruits. Remember Bulls Graze and Pigs Pig out!

“The bomb- all of the guys in the locker   room love this stuff and they have no regrets about stealing it right out of   my gym bag. Playing in the NFL is no joke, we depend on our performance to   feed our families and I take working out very seriously as way to keep me in   the game. I can get tons of stuff for free, but I would rather pay for the 100% MR , Muscle   Synthesis, and Alpha Omega M3   since they work. I Amino Load between meals, before and after workouts   practices and games ever week. Since staring this my muscles are fuller,   strength is better, no soreness and I am even leaner this off season than   when I came into the league 6 years ago.

“Lean Machine- that is what they call me   now, putting on muscle has been easier than losing fat for me over the past   few years, but now I have really put things together with your programs Scott   and the Amino Loading makes a huge difference. The new Muscle Synthesis Powder mixed with the 100% MR is great. I sip it all day long during my   workouts and between meals. Since starting in Feb. of this year with no   changes to my workouts or meal plan I have lost 7 lbs of fat and put on 11   lbs of muscle! People in the gym are hassling me all of the time, asking   me questions, I give them your business card so they will leave me alone. I   have work to do! Marvin T Orlando 4/28/08

2.Eat Breakfast Like a King

Eat breakfast like a king, studies show that people who consume a fairly large % of their daily intake during meal 1 of the day within an hour of waking have lower levels of abdominal fat and I think it is fair to make the conclusion that this is related to elevated anabolic hormone levels. Breakfast sets the tone for the entire day so make sure you have plenty of protein, anabolic fats and some good carb choices to support your goals. Breakfast choices have a huge impact on your blood sugar levels for the following 24-48 hours so this meal is an investment in your daily energy! Remember you have been fasting over night and your muscles will want energy ASAP. If you are not accustom to eating breakfast it will take some time to build up an appetite so make it a gradual process. If in a hurry each morning prepare some easy food choices the night before.

3. Amino Load with 100% MR & Muscle Synthesis Pre/Post Training

Taken 30 minutes before training this powerful stack prepares the muscles to battle the iron by optimizing hormones and providing the specific raw materials needed for accelerated growth. The increased energy does not come from stimulants, rather from a reduction of stress hormones which zap strength and motivation. The better you feel, the more productive training sessions will be. Over the years working with countless power lifters Dr. Serrano has observed significant increases in both muscle size and strength following 4 weeks of consistent Amino Loading with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis. “I designed the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis to provide exactly what working muscles need in special ratios for rapid delivery and utilization. Advanced trainees benefit the most since improving rates of recovery are crucial to boosting strength” Eric Serrano MD

4.Mix Several Protein Sources at The Same Meal

Many protein items and other foods have different qualities so try to get the best of all worlds by combining multiple protein sources at each meal. For example eggs and turkey bacon provide a nice contrast of nutrients and go well together. DigestA+Lean Protein consumed with a meal is an excellent way to diversify your protein intake and bulk up your quality calories.

5.Cook Food in Bulk The Week

Cooking is time consuming, but traveling to find good things to eat results in even more time wasted. Try cooking a bunch of stuff 1-2 times per week in bulk so you have it available at home and work. It will end up saving you money and allow you to have better control over what you ingest each day. Sure you co workers will want you to join them at a fast food place, but ultimately you will have to make some tough decision to support your goals. Do not let social pressure knock you off course; people around you will want you to conform to what they are doing as a means to justify their own bad habits.

6. Man Was Meant to Eat Meat!

Many vital nutrients exist within red meat that are hard to get elsewhere and there is no legitimate reason why you cannot consume this primal course daily. Grass fed organic sources are best since there is less crap stored in the fat cells from antibiotics. Giving the cows grass instead of feed also increases the amount of omega 3 intake within the beef to levels even with some fish. Omega 3 intake is vital for natural anabolic hormone production and it is next to impossible to get enough from food alone which is why we suggest taking the Alpha Omega M3 with meals a couple times daily which includes several accessory ingredients to keep you lean while reducing joint inflammation.

7. Be Intense

Training is not a tea party. Approach training with intensity and some reckless abandon. You do not need to put on a big show in the locker room screaming and shouting, however you should be mentally prepared to take an aggressive approach towards training. This starts with nutrition as the right combinations of foods will definitely stoke anabolism and ultimately the willingness to exert maximal effort. Never let the word “maintain” enter your mind or vocabulary. Go to the gym to get better in some way or do not bother going at all. Same holds true for nutrition, do not come up with lame excuses as to why you cannot do certain things. Successful people always find a way to get the job done.

8. Eat Whatever You Want One Time Per Week

I really do not like the term cheat meal, just sounds like something an aerobics instructor would say so let’s just say Muscle Meal. It is productive to over eat occasionally when trying to gain new muscle for the excess raw materials and anabolic burst. You are best off using some extra Alpha Omega M3 before and after this meal to interfere with body fat accumulation by modulating insulin sensitivity. Some can expand this into an entire day, but in most cases this will result in gaining some body fat so beware. Hard gainers who are naturally lean may benefit from this tactic most. Try to consume your Muscle Meal after your toughest training session of the week so you can take advantage of the excess nutrients.

9. Get at least 8 hours of Sleep

Sleep is your prime time for muscle recuperation and hormonal regeneration. Studies show that those who get adequate sleep have higher levels of motivation in comparison to sleep deprived counter parts. Yes you may be tight on time, but the hours you are awake following a good night sleep will be much more productive than ever before. Cut out some TV time and establish good sleeping patterns by going to bed and waking up at the same time every day.  To Improve the quality and duration of sleep consider Fat Reduce PM 1 to 2 hours before bed.  Clients report improved body composition and waking up feeling more well rested within a month of using Fat Reduce PM.

Preventing The Holiday 15 LBS Of Body Fat Accumulation

I met one of your clients in a Vegas gym who is Ripped and Strong as an OX pressing 125 lbs DBS for reps.   Mike swears by your customized nutrition and training plans, he eats BIG 2 training days per week and the other 5 are more conservative.   He gained 15 lbs of muscle and lost 10 lbs of fat over three months!  How is this possible?  How does he get away with the big eating? At the end of each year I end up piling on 15-20 lbs of body fat and then battle to get it off Jan 1. What is the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis he raving about?  Larry Tucson
Avoid the Holiday Fat Trap- Put on Some Muscle!

Yes the Holiday season is here and many make this an excuse to take a huge step back and squander 10 months of hard work in only 2 months time. Using the right techniques you can gain muscle and lose fat while having time to eat practically anything you want. Big Mike is a good guy, but do not get too close to his  100% MR and Muscle Synthesis while he is training or he will tear your arm off! The Cyclical Nutrition Muscle Growth (CNMG) system coordinates a large food intake with the heaviest training sessions beforehand so that the body can use the raw materials to grow new muscle without accumulating new body fat when all of the cards are played right.

Do Not End Up Looking Like This Guy!Do not dig a hole for yourself by putting off action until January 1 as this is the quickest way to a holiday season disaster.

 I have patients who like to eat like crazy over holidays so we have conducted a few experiments recently using the Alpha Omega to block fat storage.  2 groups of patients were instructed to eat whatever they wanted for an entire week while 1 group exercised daily and used 9 Alpha Omega M3 per day.  The other group did nothing but sit on the couch.  The Alpha Omega group did not gain a significant amount of body fat while the other experienced huge increases in body fat (8 lbs or more in only a week).  The concentration of the new fat accumulation were in areas I associate with poor insulin management based on years of conducting elaborate blood work testing reviews. ” Eric Serrano MD

Avoid the Holiday Fat Gaining Trap and Insulin Coma

A few consecutive meals including poor food choices such as refined carbs, fried items and more can quickly snow ball into a fat gaining disaster by surging fat storing insulin levels while sucking down a large volume of garbage that is easily converted to stored fat.  The longer the poor eating goes on the greater the increase in insulin levels as this can compound daily until you reach a point where your flat stomach quickly turns into a Bowl full of Jelly.  The vicious cycle is made worse by the associated drop in energy levels that drives hunger and intense cravings while destroying motivation to exercise, a status much like being possessed by a demon telling you it is ok to ruin your body with days of bad food choices.

Weight training before consuming meals high in carbohydrate is a metabolic game changer and one of the leading methods for managing insulin sensitivity making it a crucial element to success.  The strategic ratios of essential fats developed by Dr. Serrano within the Alpha Omega M 3 can help optimize insulin levels pushing a high percentage of the raw materials into muscles to support rapid growth instead of fat cells.  Saturating your fat cells with higher dosages of Alpha Omega on specific days creates a powerful body fat storage barrier through multiple proven pathways. 

Massive Food intake to Fire Up Metabolism

Before you jump the buffet line realize there is method to the madness here.  For 5 days consume a high protein, medium fat, low carbohydrate plan which primes the body for the weekend macronutrient cycling.  Focus two large meals high in good carb sources following heavy training on Saturday and Sunday early in the day to bolster nutrient supplies and activate an anabolic hormonal explosion.  CNMG supports body fat loss by not only rotating macronutrient %, but also food intake.

Have you ever noticed feeling hungry the next morning after a day of increased food intake?  You might have wondered how this is possible since you were so stuffed just hours before?  The body responds quickly to changing circumstances and the large influx of food sends metabolism through the roof for the next 12-48 hours creating a great fat burning opportunity the following day.   Return to your normal level of food consumption the day following the feasts to support nearly effortless fat loss as your fat burning machine rages on.

Amino Loading- Tricking The Body into Rapid Fat Burning

What do muscles need to grow?  Proper stimulation through training, an anabolic hormonal environment and an abundance of raw materials to be the building blocks for new muscle.  Amino Loading with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis around training and between meals are crucial for rapid accumulation of new muscle while burning body fat.  Dr. Serrano’s scientifically engineered ratios of Amino Acids prime the hormonal environment for simultaneous muscle growth and fat loss while accelerating recovery from aggressive training. How is this possible? The efficiently utilized aminos provide tremendous amounts of growth materials without any caloric burden that can be converted into stored fat.   Amino Loading between meals sends Anabolic Signals throughout the day making the brain believe a large volume of food has been consumed, as a result metabolic rate increases, but there is nothing to burn except stored fat for a raging metabolism since the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis have no caloric burden.

Amino Loading with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis around training and between meals. Alpha Omega with meals- all proved to be a powerful weapon in the war against body fat!

The Customized Approach

Customizing both training and nutrition to fit the individual client needs is crucial to ensure the fastest possible progress.  Mike for example responds very well to heavy loading and is only moderately carb tolerant so we must adjust accordingly.  We consider numerous factors when customizing a program including stress levels, lagging body parts, injury, age, training experience, genetics and more.  Are you highly stressed like most of the population?  Elevated stress hormones not only screw up insulin sensitivity and training capacity, but also flip on several other fat storing mechanisms.  The correct strategy must be put into place or elevated stress hormones will wreck your progress, even if you are working hard on both nutrition and training.  One proven tool for accelerating fat loss while under a high amount of stress is the Fat Reduce which works by manipulating several factors that govern fat loss.  

A high intake of the right foods along with Amino Loading increases training capacity tremendously.  Time off of work to relax, extra sleep and other recovery improving elements must also be considered when determining training volume.  We provide a range of sets so the client can choose the appropriate work load based on predicted recovery conditions on that given day.  Remember that a training session is only productive if the body can optimally recover, otherwise a negative hormonal environment sets in.  Multi Set Growth training is the ideal system for this time of year serving as the perfect change up from the medium to high rep plans many people use year round. Notice how much more fatigued your muscles feel from a heavy set of 5 reps vs. 10?  Heavy loading made possible by the lower rep ranges stimulates the fast twitch muscle fibers with the greatest potential for growth.   Amino Loading with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis before, during and after training ensures that the damaged fibers have the perfect ratios of fast acting raw materials to form new muscle immediately.  Waiting until after training to digest a protein drink is too little too late.

You will start with the highest possible weight you can use for 5 perfectly executed reps-  reduce the load 10% hit 2-3 reps- reduce the load an additional 10% and do 2-3 more reps to complete the set.  Do not be afraid to fail assuming you have a training partner to spot you for safety.  Push the limits each week by increasing loads and you will be shocked by the progress.  In many cases when training clients in the gym I have to lie to them about the weight they will use for the next set so that they are not intimidated by the increase. After the fact when realizing what weights were used a client with 10 previous years of training experience told me he was now hitting sets of 5 with weights that would have crushed him only a few months ago when trying a single!
