Q: You guys are awesome! Anabolic Reload put a half-inch on my arms in less than a month. My arms have always lagged, so I’m blown away. I hit each muscle twice a week with about 12 sets. I didn’t want to reduce my sets on all, so I just did [STX] for arms. I started with the high-rep set followed by a heavy set, then I added a rest/pause every arm workout like the program says. My sleeves got tight almost immediately. Just want to thank you for getting my puny arms up bigger than they’ve ever been. I plan on trying this for each muscle through the winter. [Read more…]
Q: I’m thinking about the 10-Week Size Surge for part of my winter workout mass training while I’m piling in the calories (can’t wait for Thanksgiving). I know Phase 1 is big, basic work three days a week. But I also like the total-fiber swole of Anabolic Reload. Can I merge them somehow to really jack my gains?
You didn’t mention your level of training or your age, but we’ll address that in a moment. Let’s talk general mass-building terms… [Read more…]
If you’ve been with us for a while, you know we harp on “change to gain” a lot, especially for those who want insane hypertrophy…
It pays BIG muscle dividends to periodically alter your workouts—sometimes radically. And, yes, even we get stuck in ruts and forget to rotate in some new hypertrophy smart bombs… [Read more…]
I just read Anabolic Reload in one sitting. Great! I like the idea of progression with rest/pause add-ons every few workouts. But shouldn’t there be an uptick EVERY workout so you get more freaky muscle gains each time you train?
We like the way you think–a bit obsessive-compulsive, but we can identify. LOL… [Read more…]
Q: Getting growth in all of the muscle fibers, even the slow twitch, makes a lot of sense. I’m looking for the most mass possible as quickly as possible, so getting hypertrophy in ALL fibers is the answer. I’m more of a leaner, hardgainer type, so my question is, Should I do more high-rep sets than just the first to get eye-popping muscle size, as prescribed in Anabolic Reload?
It does make sense that wiry hardgainer types have more slow-twitch “endurance” fibers. It’s why skinny guys usually make the best distance runners (Steve missed his calling–Lol)… [Read more…]
Q: Doing one high-rep set first before heavy sets is your MMX method for more fast-twitch fiber activation and growth. Isn’t that first high-rep set just a glorified warmup set?
A more accurate word is “focused” or “targeted.” Why? Because you get the benefits of multiple lighter warmup sets with that one slow-twitch-exhaustion (STX) set, using 20-plus reps to failure… [Read more…]
