Q: I’ve seen Jonathan’s before and after photos and read all the info [at SizeSurgeWorkout.com]. Can you give me more details on why the program works? What makes it different? I think I just need to be convinced that it’s going to work for me.
A: We don’t blame you. If you’re going to invest a full 10 weeks in a program, you want to know the mechanics of how and why it works. The Size Surge program does! It can build loads of muscle if you train hard with it, and there are a number of reasons for that. The primary one is that both phases are dominated by big compound exercises, and the workouts are designed and organized to maximize their size effects.
For example, Phase 1 has you train legs on Monday and Friday, plus you deadlift on Wednesday—just a couple of sets of each. Plus you do a few BIG exercises after legs on Monday and Wednesday. Talk about metabolic momentum for giant overall size gains! It’s frequent major mass stimulation with full days off between. Here are more reasons the Size Surge program is so effective. (These are mass triggers you should consider no matter what program you’re on)…
- Change. Make a program switch every four to six weeks. With Size Surge you do a basic anabolic-primer routine for the first six weeks—as explained above—then you switch to full-range POF for the last four. The key get-bigger trigger in Phase 1 is metabolic momentum; in Phase 2, it’s the addition of stretch overload, like one-arm dumbbell rows for midback, sissy squats for quads and overhead extensions for triceps. (An animal study produced a 300 percent muscle mass increase with only one month of stretch-overload workouts—now that’s grow power!)
- Recovery. Allow enough time between workouts for muscle and nervous system recovery. In Phase 1 you blast tons of muscle mass at each workout with the big exercises, but only a couple of sets of each. For recovery, you get a day of rest after each session and weekends off. In Phase 2, rest for each bodypart is increased due to the excess muscular stress from full-range POF—specifically stretch overload (you’ll feel stretch moves working, believe us!)
- Downshift. Speaking of full recovery, week six, the last in Phase 1, is a downshift week—only subfailure workouts. Those lower-intensity sessions are mandatory to accelerate and complete the growth process from Phase 1. Most trainees notice an appreciable muscle increase while coasting during that midpoint week as the muscles fill to full capacity. That’s called supercompensation as your body completely supercharges from the previous five weeks of anabolic-primer workouts. That means your muscles and nervous system are fully prepared for full-range POF strikes in Phase 2—and another significant SIZE SURGE.
It worked for Jonathan; in 10 weeks he was much bigger—20 pounds of muscle bigger—and was even showing some abs.
By the way, a few years ago, a top bodybuilder told us that he used the Size Surge program for many of his off-season mass phases to keep getting bigger. He said he loved it because it never failed to pack new muscle on his frame—even at his advanced stage of development!
We suggest you get on the program—in other words, try it on for SIZE!

#1 Way To Boost Testosterone and Build Mass Fast
Testosterone is converted to the female hormone estrogen inside of fat tissues, so the higher amount of body fat you carry, the higher rate of this conversion (resulting in you becoming less of a man).
In addition, we know testosterone is the single greatest factor in muscle growth and fat loss, which is why so many bodybuilders take anabolic steroids.
If your testosterone levels aren’t at an optimal level, any time spent in the gym can be a waste because your body won’t be in the right anabolic environment to build muscle and burn body fat…
