Scott I have lost 10 pounds of body fat and gained muscle during the last 12 weeks with your customized training and nutrition plans. With summer approaching what is next to help me burn 20 pounds of body fat so I can look great at the beach or pool? Michael L DC
Michael now that we have a firm base in place we can use more aggressive training and nutrition tactics to get you Leaner and Meaner by summer. After reviewing your training records I can see that following week 3 you did not increase loads as frequently which indicates the training stimuli became stale to a degree.
During weeks 3 and 6 of the next 6 week training routine we will implement 50 Caliber Training to send fat burning into overdrive.
50 Caliber Training cannot be used every week due to the level of difficulty and stress placed on the muscles and nervous system, however used correctly in conjunction with the right nutrition changes it is a powerful Physique transformation weapon. During weeks 1,2,4 and 5 You will use the same exercises, but different set, rep, tempo and rest schemes to set the stage for the 50 Caliber training during weeks 3 and 6. The consistency of the exercise movements helps to build the necessary continuity to maximize performance.
Advanced Trainees Must Change Training Factors Frequently
We will make strategic changes to the nutrition plan during weeks 3 and 6 to take full advantage of the metabolic and hormonal conditions created by the 50 Caliber sessions. Advanced trainees must make strategic changes to the diet frequently to avoid plateaus and reach their full potential. Macronutrient cycling strategies never cease to produce amazing rates of fat loss and muscle growth.
A Strategic Shock to the System That Doubles the Rate of Fat Burning and Muscle Growth
You will do 50 reps of each exercise listed in a super set fashion to help minimize rest between sets, which in turn increases Growth Hormone Dramatically while stimulating a ton of muscle fibers for rapid growth. The rest between sets should be no more than 20 seconds which gives you just enough time to sip 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder (naturally flavored with Stevia now available) while grabbing the DBS needed for the next set. While you are pressing for example your back muscles are resting and vice versa.
Maximize the Anabolic Response from Training
The short rest periods are necessary to keep the training sessions under an hour which helps to maximize the anabolic hormonal response from training and prevent over training. Inadequate rest periods and the high volume of reps will increase muscle blood flow dramatically. Dr. Serrano’s 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder proprietary blends of ingredients are absolutely crucial to accelerate nervous system and muscle recovery between sets while laying the raw material foundation for rapid muscle growth, recovery and fat loss. Trainees simply cannot execute the 50 Caliber sessions to the best of their ability or optimally benefit without the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis sipped before, during and immediately after the workout.
Double Rates of Muscle Growth and Strength Levels with GCX10
We highly recommend the New GCX10 Rapid Physique and Performance Enhancer 30 minutes before the training sessions to potentially double your rate of muscle growth and strength while combating fatigue during highly intense training phases. Dr. Serrano used multiple published studies and his own extensive patient research to assemble the exclusive blend of Lactoferrin, ATP and Glycine to change the Iron Game once again with GCX10.
GCX10 contains an even higher amount of ATP used in a 2013 published research study which demonstrated doubling strength increases of the 1 rep max of the squat and dead lift over 12 weeks vs. the control group. (2) The participants using ATP also gained nearly twice the amount of lean muscle tissue over the 12 week study while showing fewer signs of fatigued during higher volume training phases.
The research group using Lactoferrin within the GCX10 lost an average of 1.79 inches of body fat from their waist while the control group lost only .35 inches over the same 8 week Research Trial. (1)
You will start with the heaviest load possible that you can execute properly for 8 reps and do as many sets as needed in Giant set fashion to hit 50 quality reps of each exercise. This means do a set of A1, rest 20 seconds, Set of A2, rest 20 seconds, Set of A3, rest 20 seconds, Set of A4, rest 20 seconds and repeat the sequence as many times needed.
Challenging loads are crucial to stimulate a wide cross section of muscle fibers with the greatest potential for growth. On average it will take clients 8 sets to hit 50 reps and training with a partner for a reliable spot is helpful. During the later sets you may only be able to earn 4 or 5 reps per set which is to be expected. Your performance should be better during week 6 than week 3 if you keep your head and your heart in the game! Advanced clients may change the order of the exercises during week 6 to keep stimuli fresh.
