Shawn Ray is often referred to as the uncrowned Mr. Olympia, taking second in that contest twice: ’94 and ’96. His physique was almost flawless as this classic pose shows…
Shawn competed at a height of 5’7” and a weight of around 210—he never sacrificed his aesthetics for size, similar to one of his inspirations, Mr. O Chris Dickerson. Sculpt, don’t bulk…
Sculpting your physique isn’t easy, but a good place to start is training a lagging muscle from the three angles, or positions, of flexion it requires for ultimate hypertrophy at each workout. We call it POF. For example, triceps…
Midrange: Close-grip bench presses
Stretch: Overhead extensions
Contracted: V-bar pushdowns
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) Muscle damage (via microtears in the fibers) = POF STRETCH: sissy squats, DB flyes, etc.
3) Metabolic stress (by blocking blood flow during sufficient tension time for cell swelling) = POF CONTRACTED: leg extensions, machine flyes, etc.

Ripped Muscle Now: Harvard Research
Harvard researcher Dr. Dimitrios Stamou discovered an enzyme that eats bodyfat. It’s helping women and men lose up to 21 pounds on average in less than 28 days.
Plus, it can help bodybuilders get freaky ripped faster than ever (see the pic of the 69-year-old who is shredded at the link below).
Remember, when you’re leaner, you look bigger than ever… And best of all, your body can MAKE this fat-blasting enzyme by eating these specific foods… and they taste GREAT.
Our colleague, the man who owned the gym that Lou Ferrigno trained at in “Pumping Iron,” turned us onto this. He’s using it himself to shed fat faster than ever, and he’s in his 50s. Get the details and see his photo HERE.
