To be fair, the Frank Zane before picture on the left was taken after a few years of training. And you can see his genetic predisposition for bodybuilding. Heck, many guys at our gyms would kill to look like his “before” pic. LOL.
Still, what an awesome transformation into an almost perfect physical work of art.
We’ve mentioned before that a lot of how your physique peaks is genetic—but if you scrutinize your overall muscular look often and strive to build the weak areas and downplay the strong ones, you too can build shocking wow-factor proportionate mass.
Of course, building your weak area isn’t easy, but a good place to start is training a muscle from the three designated angles, or positions, of flexion, it requires. We call it POF. For example, one of Arnold’s favorite biceps workouts…
Midrange: Barbell curls
Stretch: Incline curls
Contracted: Concentration curls
POF attacks the 3 key hypertrophy triggers for optimal mass stimulation, according to Brad Schoenfeld, Ph.D.:
1) Mechanical tension (with heavier training) = POF MIDRANGE: squats, bench presses, etc.
2) Metabolic stress (by blocking blood flow during sufficient tension time for cell swelling) = POF CONTRACTED: leg extensions, machine flyes, etc.
3) Muscle damage (via microtears in the fibers) = POF STRETCH: sissy squats, DB flyes, etc.
