Q: I just got The Power-Density Mass Workout 2.0, and [Mr. America] Doug Brignole’s one-exercise-per-muscle training is interesting, to say the least. And his interview [Chapter 4] makes a lot of good points for high-rep sets.
A: Yes, his “Super TORQ” method can rack up some impressive gains. It helped Doug get into the best shape of his long bodybuilding career, and he won the Muscle Beach International Over 50 competition while using that routine (see photo below).
At 200 pounds and 5 percent
You did indeed have a hand in my transformation. In general, the turnaround came for me by way of several major changes. Higher reps, certainly. Also, far fewer sets, far fewer exercises—and now ONLY the best exercises (mechanically speaking).
A Q&A with Doug and his complete Super-TORQ program is in the Power-Density 2.0 e-book.
His method, Super TORQ (tension-overload repetition quantity) is basically 50-40-30-20-10 reps on only ONE exercise per muscle. He uses progressive-weight increases and drop sets on the last one, making Mr. America’s mass-building plan painful but incredibly effective…
We reread his Q&A from time to time, and we almost always end up incorporating more Super TORQ into our routines again. And you get might sore, too.
Try it on for SIZE.

One of the most interesting read-me pages on Testosterone and other muscle-building hormones we’ve seen is The Truth About Testosterone.
It even talks about a fruit, a specific part, that can up your T naturally. Cranking up your testosterone will not only get you jacked in the gym, but in the bedroom too—not to mention help rip up your midsection as it ignites fat burning. If that interests you, there’s more from our colleague and registered dietician, HERE.
